NEW 2012 UPDATE EDITION IS HERE. MORE PAGES, MORE FUN FACTS ABOUT MUSEUMS.
WE'RE DOWN WITH HIGH CULTURE. ARE YOU?
Copyright © 2004 by Guerrilla Girls
Rich people have always had a lot of stuff. A few centuries ago, they ran
out of room in their palaces and churches, so they started art museums. The
Guerrilla Girls love museums and all the art in them, but we worry about them,
too. Why do they raise hundreds of millions for new buildings, then complain
that they don’t have enough money to buy art? Why do they blow a fortune
on a single painting by a white male genius when they could acquire hundreds
of great works by women and people of color instead? Why do museum store execs
get paid more than curators?
The Guerrilla Girls’ Art Museum Activity Book takes you behind the pretty pictures. Wallow in the dirt that museums hope you haven’t noticed. Take our fun tests; do the math. Get ideas for how you can bother, and maybe change, your favorite museum, just like we’ve been doing. See more pages from the book.
