This book What Museums Do-The Curatorial in Parallax is based on the content of the international symposium organized by the MMCA with the title What Do Museums Research? from April 7 to 8, 2018. The symposium was the first initiative of the MMCA Research Project, which is an endeavor to examine the various practices of the contemporary museum and chart the course of its future. Composed of four sections, What Museums Do-The Curatorial in Parallax maps out the multiple efforts to reform and transform research vis à vis the museum.
