Iscensättningens verklighet – om Vera Frenkels installationer, några konstbyggen, och museiutställningars historier

Installation art and museum exhibition - reality and fiction

Two works by the Canadian artist Vera Frenkel, another by Peter Johansson and the Bonk Business Inc exhibition are scrutinized and compared with historical museum displays. The paper argues that Frenkel's and Johansson's installations are opening a dialogue, engaging and stimulating visitors in a way that leave the ironic comment of Bonk Business Inc and the static historic statements of the museum exhibitions far behind. It is to expect - and hope - that impulses from installation art should change the the attitude of the exhibition producers in museums.
