Museum— Works of art are always there and people are coming in and going
out. Their various thoughts, private interests and views about a work, are

Museum is public, educational and authentic place , which has some
functions to inform audience how to see the works, the history of art by
using a lot of exhibits.
The collection of the works makes the ‘history’ of art, so the mission of
the museum is to collect the better works.
But, originally, collecting something is very personal. When that kind of

where people can find the works they think really necessary or believe
really valuable—that is ‘museum.’
Museums in Japan gradually realize that kind of situation, but it is far
The gap between the museums and ‘I’— thinking about museum is thinking
