Published by Leave your thoughts

The Future of the Museum: 28 Dialogues has just been released in Europe and will arrive in the US and worldwide in January 2021. A product of the pandemic lockdown, the book contains interviews with museum directors conducted from late May through mid-August, 2020. Taken together, the interviews offer a generational portrait of institutional leadership with a global range. “As one reads though the dialogues, a distinctive and more or less unifying philosophy emerges about what an art museum is and what it should aspire to be,” writes András Szántó writes in the introductory essay. “If the late twentieth century ushered in a liberating pluralism in art and cultural expression, it can only be hoped that the twenty-first century will do the same for the institutions of art. This sense of open possibility would be the ultimate guarantor of the enduring strength and relevance of the museum form.”
