Performing Interpretation
Kothe, Elsa Lenz; Berard, Marie-France
International Journal of Education & the Arts, v14 spec iss 1.12 Jan 2013
Utilizing a/r/tographic methodology to interrogate interpretive acts in museums, multiple areas of inquiry are raised in this paper, including: which knowledge is assigned the greatest value when preparing a gallery talk; what lies outside of disciplinary knowledge; how invitations to participate invite and disinvite in the same gesture; and what new forms of interaction take place within acts of interpretation. Five concepts organize our investigations into museum interpretation--framing, mapping, shifting, in-between, and potentiality. We employ a conceptual fold by bringing our individual research narratives into contiguity, continually seeking for resonances and dissonances in our studies that point to meaningful understandings about art museum interpretation. (Contains 13 figures and 2 footnotes.)
