Museums are the staging grounds of culture - a close look reveals that they display much more than artifacts, and this perceptive tour of our collected and catalogued culture affords such a look. This book conducts us through the complex ideas, values, and symbols that pervade and shape the practice of exhibiting that makes the museum a central institution and metaphor in contemporary society.
This volume explores the ways in which museums assign meaning to art through various kinds of exhibitions and display strategies and controlling discourses. The authors examine the political implications of these strategies and the forms of knowledge they invoke and construct, their transformations into alternative exhibition forms, and their recent involvement with the spectacular practices of mass media culture. Certain essays also take up the question of how the museum-going public itself is constructed. Drawing on the history of museums and ranging from Western Europe to Israel, the United States and the former Soviet Union, this book will interest historians, critics, museum professionals, students of art and critical theory and all those concerned with our contemporary museum culture.
