Abstract

Museums and biographies both tell the stories of lives. This innovative collection examines for the first time biography - of individuals, objects, and institutions - in relationship to the museum, casting new light on the many facets of museum history and theory, from the lives of prominent curators, to the context of museums of biography and autobiography. Separate sections cover individual biography and museum history, problematising individual biographies, institutional biographies, object biographies, and museums as biographies/autobiographies.
