Adrian Franklin:
Anti-museums and the continuing crisis of art exhibition

In this presentation, renowned sociologist and design expert Adrian Franklin introduces the concept of anti-museum, documents its conceptual history since the eighteenth century, and identifies its increasing relevance and presence in contemporary art since its rise in the mid-late twentieth century. Using global examples from Mona, Hobart, The New Museum, New York and Art42, Paris, Franklin will present his insightful research into the structure, influence, value, engagement and impact of anti-museums around the world.
