Changes in museums

More about changes in museums in the current issue of Art Newspaper as the reality of the post-COVID environment becomes clearer: cuts everywhere; redundancies; reorganisation; restitution. I was asked just now on a forthcoming Thames & Hudson podcast how COVID will influence the operation of museums and remembered the extent to which the 1950s was devoted to reconstruction: few new museum buildings; putting things out which had been in store; patching up old buildings. New ways of thinking and making better use of existing collections is not necessarily a bad idea.
