Description Catalogue of a travelling exhibition. Work by an artist who reverses the colonial gaze, questioning British history with works that confound mythologies of imperial and post imperial Britain. The exhibition includes 'Mr and Mrs Andrews Without their Heads', 'Victorian Philanthropists Parlour', and 'Portable Personal Histories Museum', (created with a group of people attending adult education courses, each allocated a museum display case and encouraged to question the conventions within museums for displaying other people's culture). Preface by Elizabeth A. Macgregor and Gavin Jantjes. Contributors include: Okwui Enwezor; Susan M. Pearce.
