Museum als Theater

B. Kirshenblatt-Gimblett: »The museum has become a new kind of information space, one that puts information into space and into a relationship with the visitor’s body. […]«

»Museum theatre, understood as the theatrical nature of the entire situation (and not only particular techniques like the habitat group), has become a dominant mode in the expo style of the new generation museum. This mode gives precedence to drama (narrative and emotional engagement) and mise-en-scène (installation).«
