The UK Museum of Ordure was an online arts project initiated with the intention to explore the curatorial value of ordure, or human waste. It consisted of a website which initially collected public submissions of ordure, as well as documenting various installations undertaken by the museum. It has since been renamed Museum of Ordure in recognition that its remit is international in scope. It now defines itself as follows:
Museum of Ordure is a self-institution that explores the cultural value of ordure through its projects and ongoing public collections. It takes a special interest in the management of human waste and its impact on the concept of the public sphere and civil society.
