About this product
- DescriptionThere are a number of different crises, in various guises, in today's world. The most prominent of these is the global ecomic crisis, but this is t felt as keenly across the globe: there are also countries of ecomic prosperity. There is also, however, the museum crisis: the predominant model of the museum is collapsing. Again, this crisis is t constant everywhere - there are spaces that didn't have museums until recently and are w suddenly experiencing a museum boom, or else are still without museums but have initiatives that are taking care of heritage beyond the traditional model of the museum. Such crises mean that the old paradigm is being replaced by a new one that still needs to be defined. This book investigates what such a new paradigm may entail and its consequences for the preservation of heritage.
