Présentation de l'éditeur

In a series of richly detailed case studies from Britian, Australia and North America, Tony Bennett investigates how nineteenth- and twentieth-century museums, fairs and exhibitions have organized their collections, and their visitors.

Discussing the historical development of museums alongside that of the fair and the international exhibition, Bennett sheds new light upon the relationship between modern forms of official and popular culture.

Using Foucaltian perspectives The Birth of the Museum explores how the public museum should be understood not just as a place of instruction, but as a reformatory of manners in which a wide range of regulated social routines and performances take place.

This invigorating study enriches and challenges the understanding of the museum, and places it at the centre of modern relations between culture and government.  For students of museum, cultural and sociology studies, this will be an asset to their reading list.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Dense but satisfying 25 février 2008
Par Bridget - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Bennett's language may be theory dense, but it is rarely unclear while outlining the social and cultural trends which gave "birth" to the museum in its many formats, historical, anthropological, art, etc. This book is really a collection of essays previously written by Bennett on the museum and combined here; I would recommend not reading it all at once as it can be a bit much. However, it clearly looks at the historical and social reasons for how the museum came to be, particularly in its nineteenth century origins. It also relates museums to other social institutions: fairs and cabinets of curiosities as precursors, the 19th c. developments in prisons and the advent of expositions as contemporaneous to the birth of the museum, and amusement parks as a mix of the fair and the museum. Definitely located in the field of cultural studies.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 More to it than theory-speak 7 février 2008
Par Seaboard Lit Prof - Publié sur
It's true (as other reviewers have complained) that Bennett's analysis can be a little too slick at times. But even if the Foucault-inspired arguments are overstated, this book still offers interesting discussion of specific historical examples. If you take a "social control" theory too literally, this sort of analysis will become wrongheaded. But Bennett and other researchers in this vein are asking serious questions: how do the ways we order and represent knowledge (as museums are designed to do) shape what we can know?

3.0 étoiles sur 5 If you are looking for the history of museums... 28 janvier 2013
Par xoxo - Publié sur
If one is looking for a easy to read, clearly written explanation of the history of museums I would not recommend this book on its own. It should be read additional to other literature, as Bennett does just rarely gives his best to elaborate his thoughts in a structured way but often elaborates more through examples and Foucault's theory than his own thoughts. However, some passages as well as subchapters are worth reading IF they are read after beeing familiar with the establishment of museums. Alone one might just get caught in a mix of Bennett's obsessiv use of Foucault quote. If you know which parts to skip, dont try to understand every single line of thought, I find this book can be useful to read. If you are really looking for a basic outline of the history of museums I would recommend other literature (such as specific chapters of Sharon MacDonalds 'Companion to Museum Studies).

Language-wise I have had problems with Bennett's style of writing at times. Even though many might be used to this from social theory, I personally find his choice of words very complicated. I would therefore not recommend this book to non-native speakers (and I am not even sure if native English speakers would get along with his style) as a simple reading but more as a book one really has to commit to...

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Printed in poorest quality after a digital scan of the original book - not worth the money 23 janvier 2013
Par Ipsaruinadocet - Publié sur

This is not a printed book, but just a cheap reprint, apparently made after a digital scan of the original book. Almost all images are heavily pixelated, with incredibly strong "moirée"-effects; sometimes you can hardly recognize what is depicted. Any average photocopy would provide a better quality of the print. The edition looks like - and likely is - a print-on-demand book - but costs twice as much.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Rediculously complex 10 juin 2004
Par A. Maestri - Publié sur
As a museum professional with over twelve years experience designing and producing exhibitions for a wide variety of subject matter i was immediately interested in Tony Bennet's book. The summary on the back mapped out, in plain english, a book that detailed the social and political forces that resulted in and shaped the modern concept of the museum.
However once i had purchase the book and actually tried to read it I found myself drowning in Foucault -ian language that ultimately obscures any observations that Mr Bennet may have had. This book is only for those with a college degree in philosophy,as it seems more focused on showing us all how clever Mr Bennet is than actually dealing with the subject matter. Completely inaccessible to all but the most acedemic minded scholars
