heavy and light reading

Here are some books on Curating and the theoretical study of museums and galleries that people might want to look at??

Hooper-Greenhill, E. (1999) ŒMuseum learners as active postmodernists:
contextualizing constructivism¹, in E. Hooper-Greenhill (ed) The educational
role of the museum, London and New York : Routledge, pp.67-72 (handout)

Kirshenblatt-Gimblett, B. (1991) ŒObjects of ethnography¹, in Ivan Karp
and Steven D. Lavine (eds), The poetics and politics of museum display,
Washington and London : Smithsonian Institution Press, pp.386-443

Vergo, P. (ed) (1989) The new museology, Reaktion Books

Schubert, K. (2000) The curator's egg, One-off Press


The picture above is from artist Lorna Simpson who plays with text and phrases within her work.If you look at the idea of voice as sound and see what would happen if you fastened up loads of words, ie like Chinese whispers or recorded it, i think it would be quite interesting.
