Art HIstory in the News: Museums in Time and Space (The Economist)

by Carlos Fuentes

“I have always tried to visit a museum that I love as though it was the first time. Sometimes the attempt is successful, sometimes not. When the revisited museum makes me feel that I am just repeating an experience, I rush away to the nearest café. Museums, like lovers, can lose their charms. But the next time can always be the first time. I had the good fortune to return to the Museum of Anthropology in Xalapa with two younger novelists, Arturo Fontaine from Chile and Santiago Gamboa from Colombia.”
