It also must be understood that no museum or institution is apolitical, all museums and exhibitions negotiate issues of social power, the same power that sustains other ways of oppressing people through inequality, and that knowledge is cultural capital with an uneven distribution (Lindauer, 2007).

Exhibition Design To create a space of identity cultivation, critical pedagogy must not remain a theory, but must be used in practical ways, like designing exhibitions. One way to develop exhibitions that can deal with these issues of power an inequality that is widely accepted in the field, is to invite members of these excluded or under represented groups to be engaged in the decision making process (Lindauer, 2007, Pieterse, 1997, Emdin, Macdonald).
