Description - Liberating Culture by Christina F. Kreps

Using examples of indigenous models from Indonesia, the Pacific, Africa and Native North America, Kreps illustrate how the growing recognition of indigenous curation and concepts of cultural heritage preservation is transforming conventional museum practice. She explores the similarities and differences between western and non-western approaches to objects, museums, and curation, revealing how what is culturally appropriate in one context may not be in another. The book also undermines the argument that non-western people are not concerned with preserving their cultural property - an argument that has been used to justify its collection and retention in museums.
