Collecting in a Consumer Society (Collecting Cultures)
Russell W. Belk, Susan M. PearceISBN: 041510534X;
Collecting in a Consumer Society provides an in-depth account of contemporary collecting behavior by both individuals and institutions. In the twentieth century, collecting has been transformed from a prerogative of the elite few to an activity which is both attractive and feasible to the population at large. Russell Belk explores the relationship between collecting and consuming and its profound implications for those responsible for creating and maintaining museums. He suggests the role of theinstitutional collection--whether publicly or privately owned--will have to change in a society where everyone is becoming a collector.
