The Dictionnaire encyclopédique de muséologie, produced by the members of ICOFOM and supported by ICOM, is a momentous publication with a long, ambitious history. (Cont.)
Welcome to ICOFOM, the International Committee for Museology of the International Council of Museums! This committee, which is one of the most popular of ICOM, is dedicated to the study of the theoretical grounds that guide the museum work. Museology is taught around the world, sometimes under different names (museum studies, museum theory, museumswissenschaft, critical museology,... ). ICOFOM is the only truly international forum for discussing all these forms. (Cont.)
During the 23rd General Conference of ICOM, that took place in Rio, in August of 2013, André Desvallées was elected Honorary member of ICOM. We wish to mark this moment making a collection of works by those who knew him and who were, somehow, influenced by him.
