La quatrième de couverture indique: "How does the modern museum respond to the movement, migrations and mobilities of the modern world that exceed its practices and premises? The essays in this volume circulate in the constellation of cultural, postcolonial and museum studies to propose a series of intersecting perspectives promoting critical responses to this ongoing interrogation. Memory, the archive, and the politics of display, are unwound from their institutional moorings and allowed to drift into other, frequently non-authorised, accounts of time and space. Called upon to negotiate unplanned encounters with unsuspected actors and the obscured sides of modernity, the museum becomes an experimental space, a laboratory for a cultural democracy yet to come."

Far Inland is a shamanic story for our times. If story tells us of our past and vision speaks to the future, Peter Urpeth has combined both in this delightful work' - Alastair McIntosh, author of Hell and High Water and fellow of the Centre for Human Ecology 'The lonely terror of psychic disintegration and explosions of renewal are vividly and brilliantly conveyed here . . . full of authentic evocation' - Tom Lowenstein, author of Ancient Land, Sacred Whale (Bloomsbury) Raised in the Outer Hebrides, Sorley MacRath loved the moorlands and the brilliant night skies he knew as a child, but he knew as well the destructive power of the gift of 'second sight'. As a young man he turned his back on the island life for life in Glasgow where, ultimately, he runs an antiquarian bookshop. But events soon prove to him that his inherited powers are far greater than he knew. A violent assault leaves him in a coma and triggers his initiation as a shaman through startling encounters with his ancestors, only for him to wake into a sceptical world with no place for his archaic powers, and he too is uncertain of their truth and unskilled in their application. Haunted by memories and loss, he returns to his island home determined to prove the truth in his powers and his worth. There, living in the long-empty family croft house, he is drawn back to the wild beauty of the moorlands and the Gaelic culture of his childhood. Set on the Isle of Lewis and in Glasgow, Far Inland draws on Gaelic and Inuit mythology and spirituality to inform a contemporary tale that is profoundly original, elegiac and redemptive.

In this book, a make-believe cocaine museum becomes a vantage point from which to assess the lives of Afro-Colombian gold miners drawn into the dangerous world of cocaine production in the rain forest of Colombia's Pacific Coast. Although modeled on the famous Gold Museum in Colombia's central bank, the Banco de la República, Taussig's museum is also a parody aimed at the museum's failure to acknowledge the African slaves who mined the country's wealth for almost four hundred years. Combining natural history with political history in a filmic, montage style, Taussig deploys the show-and-tell modality of a museum to engage with the inner life of heat, rain, stone, and swamp, no less than with the life of gold and cocaine. This effort to find a poetry of words becoming things is brought to a head by the explosive qualities of those sublime fetishes of evil beauty, gold and cocaine. At its core, Taussig's museum is about the lure of forbidden things, charged substances that transgress moral codes, the distinctions we use to make sense of the world, and above all the conventional way we write stories.

In Hold It Against Me, Jennifer Doyle explores the relationship between difficulty and emotion in contemporary art, treating emotion as an artist's medium. She encourages readers to examine the ways in which works of art challenge how we experience not only the artist's feelings, but our own. Discussing performance art, painting, and photography, Doyle provides new perspectives on artists including Ron Athey, Aliza Shvarts, Thomas Eakins, James Luna, Carrie Mae Weems, and David Wojnarowicz. Confronting the challenge of writing about difficult works of art, she shows how these artists work with feelings as a means to question our assumptions about identity, intimacy, and expression. They deploy the complexity of emotion to measure the weight of history, and to deepen our sense of where and how politics happens in contemporary art. Doyle explores ideologies of emotion and how emotion circulates in and around art. Throughout, she gives readers welcoming points of entry into artworks that they may at first find off-putting or confrontational. Doyle offers new insight into how the discourse of controversy serves to shut down discussion about this side of contemporary art practice, and counters with a critical language that allows the reader to accept emotional intensity in order to learn from it.
