Phallological Museum

In an age of various kinds of surgical and imaginary penis augmentations, the Icelandic Phallological Museum has appeared on the world stage as a tour-de-force of global castration and local creativity. In this timely book, Professor Sigurjon Baldur Hafsteinsson portrays some of the aesthetic, political, moral, social, and cultural significance of the unique and internationally famous Icelandic Phallological Museum. The book shows that the museum both ridicules and undermines traditions in Western cultures, when it comes to the nature of histories, scholarly fields, and cultural institutions, simultaneously offering an alternative in knowledge production and cultural representation, by focusing on and displaying the highly sensitive subject of penises. (Series: Museums - Past and Present / Museen - Geschichte und Gegenwart - Vol. 7)
