Description - Making Representations by Moira G. Simpson
Moira Simpson looks at how non-western cultures have been exhibited in western museums in the past and how this practice is now being changed. Ethnic minorities, for example American Indian and Australian Aboriginal, are demanding sacred objects and human remains back from western display, to set up their own museums. This book looks at the way western museums are reacting to these demands, and developing new policy and practice to address this.
