The author views museums as complex entities in which both art and architecture are parts of a larger whole, in addition she views collections as ritual structures. In this perspective the Louvre museum in Paris and the National gallery in London are treated as examples of the transformation of the European princely gallery in the public art museum. Following this she discusses the creation of major art museums in the United States and private collections that have become separate museums or separate museum wings. Finally attention is given to museums dedicated to modern art.

Although Antiquity itself has been intensively researched, together with its reception, to date this has largely happened in a compartmentalized fashion. This series presents for the first time an interdisciplinary contextualization of the productive acquisitions and transformations of the arts and sciences of Antiquity in the slow process of the European societies constructing a scientific system and their own cultural identity, a process which started in the Middle Ages and has continued up to the Modern Age. The series is a product of work in the Collaborative Research Centre "Transformations of Antiquity" and the "August Boeckh Centre of Antiquity" at the Humboldt University of Berlin. Their individual projects examine transformational processes on three levels in particular ‒ the constitutive function of Antiquity in the formation of the European knowledge society, the role of Antiquity in the genesis of modern cultural identities and self-constructions, and the forms of reception in art, literature, translation and media.
