Check out this video from The Pinky Show and the Center for the Future of Museums, featuring interviews at last May’s annual AAM meeting in Los Angeles of museum professionals answering the question “Do you think museums are going in the right direction?”

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!”
