Meditations on the Museum (2)

Some time ago – actually, on June 1st. – I was interviewed for a podcast put out by The Browser, a daily news and current affairs digest, by Beatrice Wilford. It is the equivalent of a Long Read – long and sometimes, I realise, a touch rambling – discussion of issues raised by my book about museums and by the pandemic. The sound quality isn’t brilliant – the fault of not having proper recording equipment – but the questions are astute and very well informed, even if I never wholly answer them, and the broadcast covers the issues of the increasing politicization of museums and trustee appointments, the good things as well as the bad which have resulted from the pandemic, the move from the objective to the subjective, from didacticism to exploration. It’s a long bath.
