About this item
Curatorial Activism builds on Social Movement Studies (the sociology of political reform movements) to build and examine theoretical propositions around the tactics of Curatorial Activism and Contemporary Museology. Case-study focused, it includes strategies for ‘activating’ historical archives and collections-based data, and for engaging with an archaeology of the everyday to analyze the material residue of protest sites. The ‘Occupy Museums’ activism (bridging economy, art, and discourses of privilege) provides a site of examination. This book’s interdisciplinary framework is drawn from Sociology, History (archival and oral history-based) and Political Science as well as Museum Studies. The geographical scope of this book is US, Canadian, and global.
