Dramatiseret museumsformidling. Når publikums deltagelse får betydning

  • Ingrid Vatne


Audience participation is playing an important role in museum mediation at living history museums around the world. e aspect of participation is challenging the traditional concept of meaning making, and I will demonstrate the need for new conceptual tools for dealing with the meaning making issue in a way that enhances participation as a method for meaning making in living history museums. Building on the theoretical framework of enunciation theory and the method of participative observation back in 2008–11, when I was researching mediation in the open-air museum Den Gamle By in Aarhus, Denmark, it is my ambition to contribute to the development of the conceptual tools for dealing with the issue of audience participation in a way that emphasizes new goals for mediation.
