Pinto Mendes, Monica. 2020. “The Imaginary Museum: Interactions Between the "Material World" and the "Virtual World" In Andre Malraux’s "Museum Without Walls"”. Brolly 3 (2):111-22.


Since Classical Antiquity, the role of Museums went through a process of metamorphosis. This article begins by scrutinizing the Imaginary Museum - a theme in the work of Andre Malraux, and lead us to embark on an imaginary journey without borders, founded on the interaction between the material world and the virtual world of a Museum Without Walls that influences also the Imaginary Documentary. It concludes with a sociological reflection on what the Museum can offer today.
