Sample text

While roots existed in the 1930s, the interactivity movement germinated in the 1960s and proliferated internationally in the 1980s (Hooper-Greenhill 1991; Quin 1994; Caulton 1998). Participatory exhibits marked an important punctuation in the material-discursive formation of exhibits. That is, as well as calling on the visitor in new ways, an ‘exhibit’ could be constructed around ideas, phenomena or principles without using any authentic artefacts at all. Wider mediations undergirded these changes in the stagecrafting of exhibition spaces.

Education became core to many museums, equalling, or even eclipsing, collections and research as museums’ primary purpose (Falk and Dierking 1992, xiii). The museum started to exist for someone rather than something (Weil 2002, 28–52). Museums were increasingly ‘audience driven’ rather than ‘collection driven’ in response to accountability pressures, including the necessity to quantify their value through audience numbers, audience satisfaction and learning measures (Hooper-Greenhill 1994a, 134).

For all visitors, regardless of ability or disability, age, educational background, or preferred learning style . . user friendly in the broadest sense’ (Burda 1996, 24). The intention to mediate access prompted new professional roles, such as ‘audience advocates’ (Hooper-Greenhill 1991, 190–93) and ‘access advisers’ (McGinnis 1994, 29). By representing the interests of visitors, such professionals recalibrate the power held by visitors, ideally by addressing visitor access issues at all stages of exhibition development.
