ICI Shelf: Museology

First Line: “Are the histories staged by museums facts or fictions?”

Last Line: “To the degree that new exhibitions about Africa, or any other region of the world, engage with postcolonial critiques of the museum, they will serve as transformative spaces where outworn and dangerous stereotypes are countered by images and representations that make diverse cultural groups recognizable not only to others but also to themselves.”
