Excerpt: “Why are Pinky & friends so interested in the future of museums that they’d be willing to risk their lives to time-travel? A: Two reasons! 1) Because institutions reflect and reproduce the dominant values and narratives of its host society; AND 2) Because, among the institutions in society that most powerfully shape our understanding of past, present, & future, museums (in comparison to schools, corporate media, etc.) enjoy the least critical examination from the general public. That’s why!”
