Daniel Weinberg talks with Jodi Kanter about Presidential Libraries as Performance. 

Kanter considers the moments in the presidents’ lives the museums choose to interpret, and how the libraries approach common subjects in the presidential museum narrative€”the presidents’ early years in relation to cultural ideals, the libraries’ representations of presidential failures, personal and political, and the question of presidential legacy.
