Making works work – Listening and Learning in the Museum

As Franco Russoli wrote in 1971 “It must be shown that the museum means something entirely different from what is believed to be a museum. And I believe the most direct and effective way to do it is to promote the image of the museum as a crucible and producer of culture.”

This presentation looks at the way in which the museum serves as an “institution for the prevention of blindness”, by creating a wide variety of means for visitors to engage with the works in the museum’s care, and share their own experiences with other visitors. These means range from personal contact, innovative labelling, educational activities and digital enhancements.
