My first day in the bunker of isolationism has enabled me to read one of the best recent books on museums (my knowledge of the recent literature is generally weak) titled Anti-Museum, a description of the now long-standing movement of hostility to the conventional narratives of fine art museums, originating in the search for alternative art spaces in New York in the early 1970s. It is by Adrian Franklin, a British social anthropologist based in Hobart, who has also written an extremely informative description of the origins of MONA, and, unlike most books of museology published by Routledge, is both readable and affordable.
