Studying the Interaction of Visitors with Contemporary Art Museums through the Use of an Ethnographic Approach
The key purpose of this study was to identify the characteristics of the museum experience, expressed in different models and types of interaction between visitors and each other and with modern art museum (workers and exhibition space). The research question of the present work was: how different types of museum experience are expressed in various models of interaction of visitors with each other and with museum space. In order to achieve this goal, 13 observations and focused interviews were conducted with the visitors of the two museums of contemporary art. The use of these methods has provided an opportunity for a comprehensive study of the interaction, as well as a deeper understanding of its various types. The results obtained can contribute to a better understanding of how the visitor's experience in museum is formed and expressed through various practices of interaction.
