Description - Museums from the Inside. 60 years of CIMAM by Saskia Bos

On the occasion of its 60-year anniversary, CIMAM, the International Committee for Museums and Collections of Modern Art, its directors, and curators publish Museums from the Inside. From Suzanne Pagé and Rudi Fuchs, to David Elliott, Toshio Hara, Maria de Corral, Ken Lum to Manolo Borja-Villel and Patricia Phelps de Cisneros, this publication contains more than twenty interviews giving an insider's look at the 60 years in which modern art changed to post-modern art, and the term contemporary art, in turn, began to look almost obsolete.

Following a historical introduction, looking back at fierce debates and controversies, a selection of important texts written since 2005 on decolonization, on Arte Útil, and on indigenous art gives insight into more recent fields of research.

Texts by: Tuula Arkio, Zdenka Badovinac, Manuel J. Borja-Villel, Saskia Bos, Tania Bruguera, Maria de Corral, David Elliott, Wesley Enoch, Patrick Flores, Rudi Fuchs, Marc and Josée Gensollen, Olle Granath, Toshio Hara, Geeta Kapur, Marysia Lewandowska, Ken Lum, Elizabeth Ann Macgregor, Bartomeu Mari, Ngahiraka Mason, Ivo Mesquita, Walter Mignolo, Ahmet Ögut, Alfred Pacquement, Suzanne Pagé, Patricia Phelps de Cisneros, Margit Rowell, Rana Sadik, Donna de Salvo, Patricia Sloane, Slavs and Tatars, Hilke Wagner, Joan Weinstein.
