    The Status of the Object.Dick Pels, Kevin Hetherington & FrÈdÈric Vandenberghe - 2002 - Theory, Culture and Society 19 (5-6):1-21.
    In their substantive introduction, the editors first revisit two classical sites of controversy which have offered frameworks for theorizing the interplay between materiality and sociality: reification and fetishism. Obviously, these critical vocabularies emerge as crucial sites of perplexity as soon as the ontological boundary between subjects and objects is rendered equally problematic and fluid as the epistemological boundary between the imaginary and the real. A thumbnail sketch of the history of the two discursive traditions provides an elaborate systematic framework for (...)

    The Unsightly.Kevin Hetherington - 2002 - Theory, Culture and Society 19 (5-6):187-205.
    This article looks at a quite different form of mediation, a tactile book on the Parthenon Frieze for the visually impaired that has recently been produced by the British Museum. As a material expression of the current concern with equal opportunities and access within the museum sector, this book attempts to provide a form of access through an artefact to another set of artefacts for a group of people on the margins of the museum's visual space. Conscious of the conservational (...)

    Museum.Kevin Hetherington - 2006 - Theory, Culture and Society 23 (2-3):597-603.
    Through analysis of a critical engagement between Blanchot and Malraux on the museé imaginaire, it becomes apparent that both were seeking to understand the relationship between the museum and experience within modernity.

Following Benjamin's distinction between experience as Erfahrung and Erlebnis, the essay argues that the museum has always sought (...)
