Museum Ideas 2020: The Museum as a Contested Space

“Museums are built on a foundation of white supremacy. This has meant that racist behaviours and attitudes have been replicated in museums for decades virtually unchallenged while racial violence in society has been perpetuated over and over again. It is critical that we continually ask questions about power, representation, and the civic role of public museums, galleries, libraries and archives in the 21st Century and beyond”
