Research Week - Subverting the (Hetero)normative Museum

The ‘post museum’ concept emphasises that museums are for the people, have a role and responsibility in social inclusion, promotes ethical leadership and the demonstration of accountability. It is clear, following on from this, that representation matters. The transmission of ideas through art is always politicised and contaminated, and there are always certain prevailing perspectives in cultural representations.

Representing minority groups, therefore, can be highly influential in terms of their inclusion, and the knowledge of the group in wider society.
