“《策展革命》一书可以为人们打开一个大大的窗口…我们周围世界被刻意摆置和构造的环境,实际上都是宣传的重要组成部分…书中的许多个体与政治宣传所产生的碰撞后果,在半个世纪后的今天依然可见。” [“Curating Revolution opens up a window for us…In the world around us, our environment is one that has been arranged and constructed; indeed it is all part of propaganda.  The book’s case studies and that which they engendered in political propaganda, are still to be seen today, half a century later.” ]

董一夫,纽约时报中文网
