Phallological Museum

Reihe: Museen - Geschichte und Gegenwart, Band 7, 2014, broschiert, 200 Seiten

ISBN: 978-3-643-90470-6

In an age of various kinds of surgical and imaginary penis augmentation the Icelandic Phallological Museum has appeared on the world stage as a tour-de-force of global castration and local creativity. In this timely book Professor Sigurjón Baldur Hafsteinsson portrays some of the aesthetic, political, moral, social and cultural significance of the unique and internationally famous Icelandic Phallological Museum.

The book argues that the museum both ridicules and undermines traditions in Western cultures, when it comes to the nature of histories, scholarly fields and cultural institutions, simultaneosly offering an alternative in knowledge production and cultural representation by focusing on and displaying the highly sensitive subject of penises.

Sigurjón Baldur Hafsteinsson is associate professor in museum studies at the University of Iceland.
