About the Author

ANDRAS SZANTO (*1964, Budapest), a sociologist and founder of Andras Szanto LLC, is not only a strategic advisor to museums, educational institutions, and companies active in the art field, he is also the author and co-editor of many publications and works as a journalist for media such as The New York Times, Artforum, and ArtworldSalon.


All too often, museums tell their stories, uncritically. They don't tell the stories of the Indigenous peoples that the colonial empires were looting, raping, and pillaging. In America, they don't tell the stories of African Americans, slaves, and the holocaust of Native Americans. We are clearly at a moment of reckoning with that. And the museum industry, which intentionally or otherwise has been complicit in this societal narrative, is experiencing an awakening to these multiple blind spots. [This book aims] to figure out how to be part of this correction.--Andras Szanto "Lithub"
At the book's heart is a thesis: that thanks in part to postmodernism (which, by championing multiplicity, overturned modernism's grand master narrative) the museum, as a concept, has come increasingly under, 'it's more about the visitor experience.'--Alastair Sooke "Telegraph"
Experiment and enthusiasm make this book indispensable for those interested in the way a diverse set of possible futures for the museum are being envisioned and achieved.--Daniel Herwitz "Financial Times"
Takes the form of both philosophical inquiry and pragmatic problem-solving--all enlivened by Szanto's familiar repartee with his sources... Contributes widely divergent answers to the questions of what a museum is, can be, and should be.--Karen Rosenberg "Artful Jaunts"
A new kind of museum is emerging--here's what the future holds...--Andras Szanto "Art Newspaper"
