. a fresh, provocative, inspiring discussion of art and
the role of the museum
. offers critical ways and several unexpected and thought-provoking perspectives with which to approach contemporary art and to reflect upon art and the museum

What role do the visual arts and museums play in our society? And what role might they be able to play? The unassailable position long enjoyed by art is no longer self-evident. This means that the authority of the museum has also come under pressure. In this stimulating essay, Rutger Wolfson provokes a fundamental discussion of the current artistic climate. ‘The museum as a space for ideas’ redefines the institution of the museum. back
