THE MUSEUM AS METHOD

Authors


ABSTRACT

This speculative comment considers the potential worth of raising questions that appear simple but may be rewardingly complex. It asks whether routine aspects of curatorial work, such as captioning objects and juxtaposing them in displays, may not have more suggestive dimensions than has been recognized previously. It asks what the implications of a conception of “the museum as method” might have for current approaches to public exhibition.
