Interchange – Curating Culture: Museums and Meaning

Tonight on Interchange host Doug Storm is joined by Jason Baird Jackson, Director of the Mathers Museum of World Cultures at Indiana University and Eric Sandweiss a professor in the Department of History at Indiana University to try to answer the question “What are museums for?” by examining the ways these institutions work to create and define the culture they are said to represent. The program also looks at the way a museum works by leaving space for personal self-discovery while also undermining common stereotypes and common ideologies. The museum, not just a book on a wall.
