Accessing, decolonising and queering the museum

“Let’s say you are invited to someone’s house and they welcome you in, but you are in a wheelchair and there is no ramp in front of the house. Once you are inside, there are offensive pictures hanging on the wall. That will not make you feel as if you are welcome, will it? The same is going on in museums; they say they welcome everyone, but their collections are only accessible and appealing to some people.”
