Befreiung der Kunst vom Museum

If the walls of the museums were to vanish, and with them their labels, what would happen to the works of art that the walls contain, the labels describe? Would these objects of aesthetic contemplation be liberated to a freedom they have lost, or would they become so much meaningless Tumber?
Jonah Siegel, Desire and Excess: The Nineteenth-Century Culture of Art (2000)
