What do we know about what we know? The museum ‘register’ as museum object.

2012

Abstract

As the title suggests, this essay considers how registers provide knowledges about collections, and challenges prevailing perceptions that registers are an unproblematic resource. To do this I adopt the epistemological position that registers are themselves museum objects – ‘meta-objects’, collections of records about collections, an archive of an archive. - extract from the Introduction.
