Do we need a new art historical canon? Gathering together fresh perspectives from more than 25 leading art and museum figures – including artists, architects, curators and museum directors – from all over the world, this collection of interviews and contributions shares idiosyncratic views, feedback and visions of what is and what should or should not be a museum in the 21st century, both inherently and in our fast-changing cultural ecosystem.
Showing the diversity of today’s thinking about the museum, this tome constitutes a valuable handbook for navigating an ever-evolving landscape. Edited by Cristina Bechtler and Dora Imhof, the book is introduced by Chris Dercon and concludes with a postface by Hans Ulrich Obrist.
