Publication Date 2012
Description Narrative Environments is about exhibitions, about their practice and principles. The book establishes a comprehensive theoretical, practical and cultural-historical framework and it defines the conceptual tools to probe the dynamics of the profession. Exhibition designers generally face the task of translating complex narrative, academic objectives into a compelling spatial narrative comprising a mix of different media and communicative strategies. With the aid of space, collection pieces, images, light, photography, film and interactive media, the medium of the exhibition has acquired a unique potential to inform, seduce or surprise visitors and to induce engagement. Narrative Spaces uncovers the dramaturgical, scenographical principles of the exhibition as a narrative space and it inspires new approaches of exhibition design. The book analyses the field from three different points of view: the theoreticalphilosophical, the practical and the cultural-historical. It not only addresses designers, but also curators and critics, theatre makers, artists and architects - in short, everyone interested in the expressive potential of spaces.
