Artefacts and the performance of an exhibition

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


The article explores the role of mediating artefacts in children's encounters with a museum of natural history. Using actor network theory it explores how a specific artefact shapes the way users relate to exhibited objects and how the artefact guides users' movements in the exhibition. The mediated performance of an exhibition is explored through an empirical case.
