MUSEUM MALAISE (MYTH OF THE MUSEUM PART ONE) by Dr James Lattin
A5, 16 pages, full colour printing, saddle stitched, 2020
The Myth of the Museum is a set of three publications charting a journey made by Dr James Lattin in which he questions the purpose of museums.
In Part One: Museum Malaise, Dr Lattin succumbs to a malaise in which he cannot work out his feelings for the Museum, in that it delights him and annoys him in equal measure. He decides to spend more time in the Museum, but finds that he cannot leave. Instead, he wanders around the Museum, and explores its future history. Will he ever find his way out?
