Atmosfære på museer - en pilotundersøgelse af et rum på Danmarks Forsorgsmuseum

Henrik Johannessen & Anne Elisabeth Kyhn

Studenteropgave: Kandidatprojekt


Museums are important for us to understand ourselves in a society which constantly changes. To learn about our heritage and culture, may show us which way we want to go. This ‘project’ concentrates about the phenomenon ‘Atmosphere’. We wanted to examine how atmosphere comes to show in a museum, as a learning environment. We chose to ‘examine’ a specific room, where our phenomenological research would take place. This project also case of how the ‘materiality’ of the room, affects how we behave and interact with the room. What does the atmosphere do to us - and the physical places we find ourselves in? You can find atmosphere everywhere you go. It’s a widely explained term and it can be interpreted in many different ways. And we’re trying to understand it, and to explain it academically through philosophical phenomenological theory of Gernot böhme, who approaches it as an aesthetic term. We try to examine it empirically from a phenomenological point of view. We’d have to open our senses, and try to put in words how it interacted with us. We chose the museum “Danmarks Forsorgsmuseum” To understand more about this museum, we interviewed the exhibition manager, Sarah Smed to find out what they intend to convey to the visitors and how they do it. We found compliance in what we intended to find out, and our results. The atmosphere is a great part of how this museum wants to communicate to us. And they do so deliberately, for the quest to get an experience. The results of our phenomenological project moreover showed us that, our subjective experiences can tell us something in general and individually. This project will shed light on each of our experiences.
