Curatorial Activism - (Museums in Focus) by Kylie Message (Hardcover)
About this item
Curatorial Activism builds on Social Movement Studies to build and examine theoretical propositions around the tactics of curatorial activism and contemporary museology. With a focus on case studies, 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, which bridges economy, art, and discourses of privilege, provides a site of examination. This book’s interdisciplinary framework is drawn from sociology, history and political science, as well as museum studies.
