- About the Book
Xenia Surikova, culture expert and museologist, studies the phenomenon of the museum through the prism of the architecture and suggests that the museum should be considered within the large context of the cultural transformations, which had effect on the roles and functions of the museum in the society. Consistently examining the specific features of the museum existence in the different phases of history, the author shows how, depending on the strategies of attitude to the past, the perception of the museum object and the museum function changed, and, accordingly, the typology of a museum building was built or destroyed.
The book is addressed to architects, artists, culturologists, museologists, as well as representatives of city administrations and diverse civic communities.
