In two years, De Tentoonstellingsmaker van de 21ste eeuw (The 21st century Exhibition Maker, TM21) attempts to reach a full investigation into the impact of an exhibition on the visitor. Based on previous research, four aspects that are relevant to exhibition makers when they're designing an exhibition for visitors and want to direct the visitor experience have been defined:

  • Participation: all that has to do with stimulating the visitor to actively participate in the exhibition;
  • Narrativity: all that has to do with providing a clear story for the visitor;
  • The use of digital media: everything that has to do with the way in which the visitor can communicate in a digital way with the content of the exhibition;
  • The atmosphere of the exhibition space: everything that has to do with the appearance and impression of the exhibition on the visitor.

In various work packages within the project, these aspects are further investigated and tested by means of four case studies.

Sound and Vision leads the work package Participation. This work package will organize a number of sessions with the project partners and result in guidelines and checklists for the use of participation in contemporary exhibitions. For the project, Sound and Vision also provides a case study that will be investigated during the project. For this a Living Lab will be created that can be visited by visitors this fall during the new exhibition.

This project is funded with support from SIA RAAK public.
