The Delirious Museum : A Journey from the Louvre to Las Vegas Paperback / softback
"The Delirious Museum" is a remarkable, illuminating work, which presents an original view of the idea of the museum in the twenty-first century, re-imagining the possibilities for museums and their displays and re-examining the blurred boundaries between museums and the cities around them.
On his quest for the Delirious Museum, Storrie takes a journey that begins in the Louvre and continues through Paris, London, Los Angeles and Las Vegas.
He encounters on his way the museum architecture of John Soane, Carlo Scarpa and Daniel Libeskind, the exhibitions of El Lissitsky and of Frederick Kiesler, and the work of artists as varied as Marcel Duchamp, Andy Warhol, Marcel Broodthaers, Sophie Calle and Mark Dion.
