VISITING THE VISITOR: AN ENQUIRY INTO THE VISITOR BUSINESS IN MUSEUMS. Ed. by Ann Davis and Kerstin Smeds. Transcript Verlag, Bielefeld, 2016. Transcript Museum, 18. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Columbia University Press, New York. 250 pp. with 36 ills. 23 x 15 cm. ISBN 9783837632897 In English.
Publisher's description: The study of the museum visitor has undergone a radical transformation. This collection brings together imaginative research that encourages new conclusions. Some questions involve the visitor's identity, what she brings to her museum experience. Can we gain entry into this experience? Does more technology really increase access to the objects themselves? Others probe the very nature of museum-going and exhibition making, demanding that we reexamine the traditional exhibition to reposition the visitor and her meaning-making at the center. Each author here has asked unfamiliar questions and responded with fresh answers.
