How do museum collections relate to how we identify ourselves?
I’ve never thought about this before, here are my first thoughts:
- It gives us a sense that we have a historical and geographical context.
- We can see examples of how others have expressed themselves e.g. Through painting & sculpture
- What we are drawn to and how we respondtells us something about ourselves – I am drawn to the intricate and I’m one of those people who likes to read the labels, I want to understand & know why.
I should add that a museum curator was one of the things I wanted to be when I grew up!
