Summary:
"This volume explores a range of contemporary museums in Europe and Africa. The case studies examine the different ways in which various actors involved in cultural production dramatize and ritualize the sites. It turns out that not only museum specialists, but visitors themselves are engaged in complex performances and experiences that often make use of museums in unexpected ways."--Jacket.
