In the example chosen here, the sign carries meaning is able to do so because, unlike we ourselves who must die, it bears an ‘eternal’ relationship to receding past, and it is this what we experience as the power of ‘ the actual object’. Through this book I learned: The value of the collections to the owner does not depend on the price, material, function or their history but determined by memories.

Pearce makes a philosophical explication of how material functions within museum collections. The author defends museums as collection – that is, object centered – institutions, and argues that museums should be concerned with the creating and facilitating special experiences through its collections, which is why it is important to understand how the museum and its collections function at all their various levels. Pearce begins by examining the nature of material culture – asking what an object is, what creates an artifact, and how materiality objectively anchors time, as an authentic or “real” object, or as a signifier. Furthermore, Pearce discusses how value and ownership is assigned to objects, and explores different types of investments made in the collection of material culture, including: financial, sport, extension of self, control, and a tool for shaping the world. Pearce identifies three forms of collecting, namely: 1. Souvenir, 2. Fetish, 3. Systematic. Pearce then turns her attention to how museums create meaning with their collections, which Pearce categorizes as function, structure, and history (which might have sacred/religious tones, be considered treasure, or be regarded as a historical witness). The way objects are experienced can be active, giving objects agency in a relational exchange. However, Pearce acknowledges the problems of power relations and shifting ideological paradigms.

Excellent book
Xangeo
In the book Susan Pearce presents many topics concerning collecting, museums and the cultural context that forced the outcome of museums. But the chapters lack in my opinion a coherent form that synthesizes the abundant themes in a central thesis. The book is a collection of thoughts and interpretations - sometimes more or less complex, sometimes very banal. What made me angry, were too many pictures and self-made diagrams with very little theoretical outcome in their explanation. My be this book had to be been written, to show everyone that this kind of cultural philosophy is not of much value. Therefore I recommend the impressive book of Didier Maleuvre: Museum Memories. It is much more concentrated and has a complexity that Susan Pearce never reaches.
