(p.137) Conclusions
The Museum as a Cinematic Space

Elisa Mandelli

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter runs through the main arguments of the book and traces the conclusions, arguing that not only audio-visuals can be incorporated in exhibitions, but exhibitions can also be structured according to cinematic principles, or be influenced by the configuration of the “classic” cinematic dispositive. Moreover, moving images play a key role in shaping the relationships between visitors and the museum. The cinematic component should thus be understood as a “structural element” of contemporary museum exhibitions, rather than as an extrinsic component.
