Barni & Paris: Redesigning museum space in times of pandemic: an opportunity for cultural participation?
In Welcome to the Forum
Jul 03, 2021
Dear colleagues. I was amazed by the number of museums you studied in such a short time, with interviews to boot. Having worked with several students in the past at the Louvre and the Musée de l'Orangerie, we noticed that the "museum" space is a mosaic of sub-spaces. The languages present are not the same in the exhibition rooms, in the shop, in the restaurant area, and even in the toilets. Their weight is different and sometimes this is even played out within the exhibition rooms: the flyers may differ from the audio guides. Have you planned to work on other spaces than the exhibition halls to record the changes due to the pandemic? It is true that some spaces were closed (museum restaurants) but now things are changing.
