One reply on “What’s Wrong with Museums?”

  1. ’bout time someone said it.
    It occurred to me recently that ‘art’ as seen in the context of so many vaulted, security-laden settings is more about ownership than anything else – as if the modern version of the King’s storehouse of looted wealth, the Louvre for example, became an art museum; its curators, the treasurers, never intended their holdings to be accessible to everyone; not really. It makes no difference, it’s not yours and likely never will be. That’s the message.
