PhD research project ‘Exhibition Analysis: Premises, Principles and Perspectives of a new Method in Museology/Museum Studies’
This research project combines premises and principles of already existing theoretical approaches and develops by that a new method for exhibition analysis. What is special about this new method? It responds to the complexity of the medium exhibition by taking all kind of exhibition elements into account and enables the detection of and critical reflection on the (un)intentional statements made by the ‘expository agency’ (Bal, Double Exposures 1996). Furthermore, it recognizes the researcher’s subjectivity and strives for intersubjectivity in the exhibition analysis report.
The research project started in 2017 and will be finished in 2022. Supervisors are Guido Fackler (Universität Würzburg, Germany), Hester Dibbits (Reinwardt Academie), and Michaela Fenske (Universität Würzburg, Germany).
Carla-Marinka Schorr is a PhD candidate at the University of Wuerzburg, Germany, Department of Museology/Museum Studies. She holds a BA in Museology and European Ethnology and is alumna of the Master Museology Programme at the Reinwardt Academie.
