Product description

In the face of austerity cuts to public funding, a handful of museums of contemporary art have devised compelling alternatives to the mantra of 'bigger is better and richer'. In 'Radical Museology' art historian and critic, Claire Bishop presents the collection displays of the Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven, the Museo Nacional de Reina Sofia in Madrid and MSUM in Ljubljana as outlines of a new understanding of the contemporary in contemporary art."
