About This Book

By examining how folk objects are mobilized in national ideologies, transmissions of personal and family memory, museological discourses, and artistic acts, From Storeroom to Stage explores the role that material culture plays in the production of value and meaning. Departing from a museum collection in London, the book traces in reverse the journey of these artefacts to the villages where they were made, as well as to other spaces. It also looks at the places where this movement of objects is halted, and the value of the artefacts is put to test.
