What I put forward here is that the interpretative practices of the museum, whether they take the form of exhibitions, education programs, written texts or digital productions, are fashioned by relationships between the familiar and unfamiliar, which in turn both shape and are shaped by human understanding in general. The development of a new field of practice--interpretive planning--is an encouraging recognition of the centrality and the complexity of these relationships. (Contains 24 notes.)
