Research output: Contribution to journalArticleProfessional


Engendering integration while acknowledging differences is one of the biggest challenges facing museums globally today. Institutions must reconceptualize the relationship between their collections and the engagement with (new and diverse) audiences at all levels. In response, there has been a shift in the museum model, both theoretically and on the level of institutional arrangements, from the museum as a site of authority to the post-museum as a site of mutuality. In the selected essays we encounter two main lines of inquiry; one is directed towards the various roles given to or taken by audiences, while the other concentrates on the impact of postcolonial thought and the global environment on institutional collaborations.
