This book offers a diverse, rigorous, and experimental analysis of what is commonly known as education, mediation, or interpretation within museum institutions. It takes the visitor not as a passive receiver of predefined content, but as a member of a constituent body, one who facilitates, provokes, and inspires. The publication situates these practices within the socio-political context and the physical and organisational structure, and attempts to understand this change in an integral, interdisciplinary manner. It addresses such issues as ownership and power dynamics, collective pedagogy, co-curation, crowdsourcing, digital cultivation, activating archives, and more.
Issues that are addressed: ownership and power dynamics, collective pedagogy, pedagogy of encounter, collaboration, assent, dissent and consent, co-labour and co-curation (economies of exchange), precarity and working with interns, archives and how to activate them, broadcasting, digital cultivation, crowdsourcing, etc.
