In Museums at the Post-Digital Turn, critics, researchers, theorists, artists and professionals interpret the role of the contemporary museum as a field of knowledge production. Can the museum space, in its post-digital extension, still function as a resource for, and source of, critical insight? How does the relationship between institutions, artists and artworks change within the shifting discourse of a hyper-mediated experience of reality?
Combining critical analysis, conversations and presentations of case studies, Museums at the Post-Digital Turn attempts to discuss a vision on the position, value, function and future of museology and institutions working in the cultural field.
Included are writings by leading theorist in this area, such as Boris Groys, Claire Bishop, Christiane Paul, Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev, Lauren Cornell and Domenico Quaranta.
