Pfefferkorn, J. (2023). Museums as Assemblage Oxon/ New York: Routledge (available here)

Museums as Assemblage offers a new way of thinking about the dynamism of art museums. Using the theoretical concept of assemblage, this work unpacks relations between visitors, artists, museum staff, and the museum’s nonhuman components. This provides an analytical framework that celebrates the complexity of museums today. This work takes the Museum of Old and New Art (Mona) in Tasmania as its primary case study. Mona is widely recognised in the museum sector as a success story, and as emblematic of the changes in museums in the 21st century. To situate this case study in global trends, I draw on a range of examples from art museums across Australia, New Zealand, Europe and East Asia.
