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

In this presentation, renowned sociologist and design expert Adrian Franklin introduced the concept of anti-museum, documented its conceptual history since the eighteenth century, and identified 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 presented his insightful research into the structure, influence, value, engagement and impact of anti-museums around the world.
