Susanne Hansen, Jon Stribæk-Frandsen & Christian Irgens Struckmann

Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


This project is based on the thesis that the museum world is under change; the museums are influenced by political demands of public visibility. In order to meet that demand the museums is forced to interact with the press. It creates a communicative situation where the museums have to think in good headlines rather than in scientific results, in order to catch the Media’s attention. The main theoretical framework for this project is Jürgen Habermas public theory, and Dorthe Skot-Hansen’s theory of museums in the experience-economy. The subject for our attention is a single case study of Fyrsten fra Ishøj which is an archaeological finding made by Kroppedal Museum. The finding was drawing great attention from the press and because of that the finding developed great political culture-value. Especially Ishøj kommune where using the finding as a brand. The museum where interest in the media-attention and in a working relationship with Ishøj kommune. But the museums scientific work where pressed by the marketing work and the interacting with the press. Neither the interacting with Ishøj kommune or the time spent on the press is a part of the museums traditional work and that were pulling on resources which were meant to be spend on other things.
