I apologise for the occasional silences of the blog. I have been immured in the British Museum completing the reading for my book on post-war museums, which was originally going to be called The Transformation of the Art Museum. But this was regarded as too academic and it is now likely to be called The Art Museum: A Global Journey, which conveys the fact that it is, as far as possible about new museums worldwide, although I am weak on South America and haven’t seen the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art in Cape Town, which I should have done. But at some point one has to draw a line in the sand and accept that one can’t see them all. Anyway, I’ve enjoyed doing it and there’s still much to be done, so there may be further silences.
