In representing what we know about the world and our place within it, the role of museums has been guided by particular fields of knowledge and power. Visiting a museum consequently comes with a conventional set of practices and ways of seeing that guide us through familiar connections between history, place and culture. Jean-Hubert Martin's Theatre of the World, currently showing at MONA in Hobart, offers a chance to reflect on the limits of these conventions and ultimately move beyond them.
