Established in 2007 by Marc Fischer, and featured in the 2014 Whitney Biennial, Public Collectors encourages collectors of material culture--the kind that most museums won't exhibit--to 'open' their collections to the public. Extending the popular website of the same name, this book presents a wide array of collections--some featured on the website, most newly assembled for publication--interspersed with commentary and essays exploring the problems and politics of collecting materials that may lack conventional monetary or cultural value.
