Martin-Roth-Symposium – MuseumFutures – Kavita Singh: Not the Same Museum, Not the Same Future

How do I see the future of the museum as a space of democracy from my vantage point in India, where we hardly have any well-functioning museums, and where democracy itself seems to be shrinking? In my remarks, I want to share some thoughts about the limits and possibilities of building collections and collecting buildings today; about museums as places for redistributive but not retributive justice; and as crowd-sourced self-education as a way of escaping statist cultural propaganda.
