Leslie Bedford, former director of the highly regarded Bank Street College museum leadership program, expands the museum professional’s vision of exhibitions beyond the simple goal of transmitting knowledge to the visitor. Her view of exhibitions as interactive, emotional, embodied, imaginative experiences opens a new vista for those designing them. Using examples both from her own work at the Boston Children’s Museum and from other institutions around the globe, Bedford offers the museum professional a bold new vision built around narrative, imagination, and aesthetics, merging the work of the educator with that of the artist. It is important reading for all museum professionals.

Fostering Empathy through Museums features fifteen case studies with clear take-away ideas, and lessons learned by vividly illustrating a spectrum of approaches in the way museums are currently employing empathy, a critical skill that is relevant to personal, institutional, economical, and societal progress. The need is rapidly growing for empathy to serve as a lens through which we find our purpose and connection in a complex world. This demand brings with it an appetite to cultivate it through safe and trusted platforms. Museums are uniquely equipped to undertake this important mission. This book will help museum staff and leadership at all levels working at a variety of museums (from animal sanctuaries to art museums, from historic house museums to children's and science museums) to better understand the multitude of ways how empathy can be cultivated, and employed in museum setting.

Was Robert Altmans Film »Prêt-à-Porter« für die Modewelt war, ist Sarah Thorntons Buch für die Welt des riesigen Boom-Marktes der Gegenwartskunst: Nach welchen Regeln funktioniert sie? Wer entscheidet, welcher Künstler einer der ganz großen (und ganz teuren) wird? Was treibt die Sammler, die Galeristen – und was bedeutet all das für die Kunst und die Künstler selbst? Mit dem Handwerkszeug einer Ethnologin erkundet Sarah Thornton diese einzigartige Welt aus Kreativität, Geschmack und Macht, aus Status, Hoffnung, Geld und Intrigen. Sie hat mit über 250 Insidern, Künstlern, Galeristen, Kritikern, Kuratoren und Sammlern gesprochen und ist als kritische Beobachterin für eine Zeit selbst Teil der Kunstwelt geworden. Ihr Buch schildert lebensprall und gespickt mit intelligentem Klatsch und Tratsch die Menschen und Instituitionen, die die Kunstgeschichte der Zukunft schreiben.

Born near Minsk in White Russia, the painter Chaim Soutine (1894-1943) created his major works in France between the two World Wars. He is identified with the School of Paris, the group of artists, many of them foreign-born and Jewish, who lived and worked in the French capital between the wars. Known as a "painter's painter", Soutine worked with unreserved gesture and emotion, using exuberant color, thickly applied paint, and sweeping brushwork.Chaim Soutine is a comprehensive, ground-breaking book that rediscovers this important artist, providing an overview of his life, work, and aesthetic influence, as well as his critical reception. Essays by leading scholars and curators assess Soutine's art from new vantage points, including the changing critical reception of his work in Paris between the wars, as well as in the US and France in the aftermath of World War II and the Holocaust. The essays also examine the influence of Soutine's Jewish and French immigrant background on his work and reception, and introduce us to his important patrons and major collectors. These included Albert Barnes, the famous Philadelphia collector, who discovered Soutine's work in 1922-23 and purchased 52 of his paintings.The book features presentations and information never published before, including a photo-essay composed of rare photographs of the artist, newly discovered correspondence between Soutine and the French art historian Elie Faure, and the first radiographic analysis of the artist's work, which brings to light new evidence about Soutine's use of materials and his process of painting.
