About this book

Shows how deployment has replace amassing as a primary goal of museums and how they now actively shape values. The author is critical of the domination of an 'art-work' aesthetic in museums and proposes a more integrative alternative. She also urges museums to sharpen their individuality rather than strive for inclusiveness.
