This book What Do Museums Collect? is based on the content of the international symposium organized by the MMCA with the same title from November 30 to December 1, 2018. The symposium was the second initiative of the MMCA Research Project, “What Museums Do” series. What Do Museums Collect? focuses on two factors: the first has to do with the “others” that have been somewhat marginalized through different races and/or cultures; the second includes various issues arising from media and formal changes in contemporary art.
