The first years of the twenty-first century have witnessed an impressive re-evaluation of Islamic art and archaeology. However, while museums and galleries become increasingly important forums for public interest in Muslim cultures, there has been little discussion about content or categories of order and their new role in the light of modern museology, museum pedagogy and new approaches in other fields of knowledge. Islamic Art and the Museum provides a historical and conceptual analysis of the notion of Islamic art and documents approaches to its presentation in museums worldwide. The contributors challenge existing notions of the research, methodology and analysis of Islamic art and investigate the extent to which socio-historical and anthropological approaches result in new analytical perspectives. They also examine the difficulties that need to be overcome when presenting Islamic art to avoid reducing the objects merely to the visual and aesthetic. Museums covered in detail include the David Collection, Brooklyn Museum s Arts of the Islamic World Galleries, Museum of Islamic Art in Doha, Hermitage Museum, British Museum, Aga Khan Museum in Toronto and the Museum of Islamic Art at the Pergamon Museum.
