Museum - Politics - Management

In light of the global pandemic, environmental degradation, and racial justice crises, the contributions of this issue offer timely responses and thorough research on museum management, collection and archiving practices, curatorial approaches, and cultural policy instruments used to transform existing museum infrastructures. What is a “decolonized” collection? How does this affect exhibition development and public programming?
