Today, about 90 percent of our collections are stored in the museum depot. The depot, as a hidden place usually taboo, is the continuously throbbing heart of every museum. In the field of tension between theoretical reflection and the analysis of lived museum practice, the author brings the museum depot, an area with fundamentally static connotations, into our awareness as a living generator of meaning.
