Museum Storage and Meaning : Tales from the Crypt (Hardcover)

Museum Storage and Meaning : Tales from the Crypt (Hardcover) - image 1 of 1

About this item

Beyond their often beautiful exhibition halls, many museums contain vast, hidden spaces in which objects may be stored, conserved, or processed. Museums can also include unseen archives, study rooms, and libraries which are inaccessible to the public. There has hitherto been little written specifically on these hidden aspects of museums. This collection of essays fills this gap, illuminating themes such as the architectural character of storage spaces, the relationship between storage and canonization, the politics of collecting, the use of museum storage as a form of censorship, and the economic and epistemic value of museum objects.
