A Tiger in a Museum is not a Tiger

A Tiger in a Museum is not a Tiger - Massimo Negri

All founding members of EMA worked for a long with Kenneth Hudson (1916-1999). He published fifty-two books in his life and an endless number of articles and other ephemeral texts frequently translated into foreign languages.  On the occasion of one hundred years from his birth, European Museum Academy and the Forum of Slavic Cultures joined their forces to celebrate the anniversary with seminars, conferences and a publication which offers the public  an idea of his unique personality, his spirit and his way of communicating. We decided that quotations would be a good way to represent his brilliant way of reasoning and communicating. And here is the result. Some quotations are very short, spontaneous and easy-to-be-read, others are more articulated, but all together gives an idea of his method in observing the multifaceted and evolving world of European museums. We can guarantee the authenticity of all these texts which comes also from private archives of EMA founders. The answer to the question “why to read this book?” is simple, to know him better or to start to enter his intellectual world. But how to use it? Being a collection of quotations, this small book does not necessarily require to be read from the beginning, you can enter it any page and also play with it moving freely as in a museum' s room, simply following your curiosity. Professionally you can use it also when writing an article, lecturing or teaching, or proposing to other colleagues one or more quotations as the starting point to develop a further discussion. It will be an interesting exercise as Kenneth Hudson was never banal.
