PhD Research

Although originally produced for advertising purposes, many printed posters have become part of museum exhibitions. Using a material cultural approach, this study examines the repurposing of publicity materials by museums. The primary research question is: do values and meanings of publicity posters change as they become museum exhibits and if so, how?
