Published to accompany the exhibition, Weltkulturen Museum in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, 2014.
The exhibition presents "the historical accumulation and commodification of artefacts from other cultures and the photographic representation of the body, together with new artistic research".
In 2003, in preparation for the exhibition, three international workshops took place at the museum where the administration of people and goods, the deployment of photography, and the rhetoric of museum display were discussed. Ciraj Rassool, Professor of Museum and Heritage Studies at the University of the Western Cape, participated in these workshops. Extracts from these discussions appear in the book.
