“The privatization and sponsorship of culture is therefore disturbing because it is emblematic of a future where even our most sacred realms can be co-opted by corporations…. as private museums become more popular in France and other nations with typically state-governed arts and culture, the private influence on museum practice — de-accessioning, reciprocity in loans — will only increase. Although private museums are required to meet the same standards and policies of public museums, one must wonder whether private owners will simply view their museums as an extension of their own private property and will therefore run them as such, changing or ignoring important, preexisting laws? ” Worthy of your reading and reflecting. Once again, a great text by Cody Delistraty.
