Contents
  • Das Gesicht an der Wand / Edwin Janssen -- 1. Telling, Showing, Showing Off: in which the threshold between two worlds is more telling than the division between the two sides of New York's Central Park, and words expose images exposing words -- 2. The Value Factory: in which issues of ownership and preservation reveal a first-person narrator, and literary theory is brought in to learn the foreign language spoken in museums; and in which the distinction between types of museums turns out to be more than just labeling -- 3. The Talking Museum: in which one image reads another by hanging next to it, and in which parrots can speak without imitating; but this requires that discourse be liberated from the stronghold of linguistic supremacy -- 4. Museumtalk: in which conversations lead to monologues and authority makes sense, so that museology becomes a measure for cultural analysis
  • 5. First Person, Second Person, Same Person: in which the best scholarship gets entangled in a narrative of display in its very attempts to avoid such discourses, but where unknotting those knots turns out to be worthwhile -- 6. A Postcard from the Edge: in which postcards, undeliverable for lack of a recent address, can still be returned to sender -- 7. The Story of W: in which lessons about reading metaphor against simplification are practiced to save Lucretia's (after)life, and the struggle to find words to fit images provides a model of integrative display -- 8. His Master's Eye: in which it turns out not all modern men heed Shakespeare's will, to the detriment of their own enjoyment; but some do, and thus teach cultural analysis about its subject -- 9. Head Hunting: in which "Judith" demonstrates that epistemology is not the prerogative of philosophers, and images will point out, for the last time, what can be shown, and what cannot
