Product Description

Product Description

Museum Bodies discusses the politics and practice of visitor studies, and the differentiation and exclusion of certain bodies on the basis of, for example, age, gender, educational attainment, ethnicity and disability. Museums are more than ever concerned with size, demographic mix and the diversity of their audiences, and the ways in which visitors engage with and respond to institutional space and content. This wide-ranging study of visitors' embodied experience of the museum is long overdue.
