Images of the Art Museum : Connecting Gaze and Discourse in the History of Museology (Hardcover)
About this item
To contribute differentiated viewpoints to the currently evolving metadiscourse on the museum, this book seeks to investigate how the institution of the museum has been visualized and translated into different kinds of images and how these images have affected our perception of these institutions. The aim is to discuss a wide range of historical and present-day 'images' of art and archaeology museums in Western and non-Western societies.
