The booklet explores some of the practical, legal and ethical questions raised by co-production projects. The aim is to help people who work in museums, and researchers who work with museums, to explore and think through questions of ownership and consent. With this in mind we aimed to put questions of ownership and consent into a broader context of institutional politics and the different emerging democratic tendencies in UK museum practice: 1) Representation democracy, public accountability, professionalism and participation; 2) Grassroots activism to create institutional change and; 3) Associative democracy which flows through earning legitimacy through interactions and building ‘commons’.
