The Constituent Museum is inspired by a simple question: What would happen if museums put relationships at the center of their operations? Museums often organize their relationships with the public as "educational," but this role can be rethought. This book imagines the visitor not as a passive receiver of predefined content but as an active member of the constituent body of the museum.
