MODELL FUR EIN MUSEUM: DIE SAMMLUNGAUSSTELLUNGEN DES KUNSTMUSEUMS LUZERN, 2005-2010 (Model for a Museum: The Collection Exhibitions of the Kunstmuseum Luzern, 2005-2010). Peter Fischer et al. Kunstmuseum Luzern, Lucerne, 2010. Published in association with Kehrer Verlag, Heidelberg. 224 pp., profusely illustrated. 24 x 18 cm. ISBN 9783868281323 In German.
"Museums usually show their permanent collections in a static presentation. But a few years ago the Museum of Art Lucerne decided to try out a different way of handling the works in its collection: it now presents them in continually new constellations, as thematic exhibitions. This concept mirrors the international tendency to depart from the canonical view of art history in favor of a more individual and dialogue-based engagement with art. This publication presents twelve widely divergent exhibitions as examples of how a creative approach -- which does not, however, dispense with academic and conservational rigor -- can help to compellingly convey the many layers and specific qualities of a collection of art objects." Volume is in very good condition.
