Museums and the Interpretation of Visual Culture by Eilean Hooper-Greenhill
Book DescriptionThis is a multi-disciplinary study that adopts an innovative and original approach to a highly topical question, that of meaning-making in museums, focusing its attention on pedagogy and visual culture. This work explores such questions as: * How and why is it that museums select and arrange artefacts, shape knowledge, construct a view? * How do museums produce values? * How do active audiences make meaning from what they experience in museums? This stimulating book provokes debate and discussion on these topics and puts forward the idea of a new museum - the post-museum, which will challenge the familiar modernist museum. A must for students and professionals in the field.
