Abstract [en]


Purpose/Aim: The aim of the thesis is to study the communicative ways in which this museum exhibition works to create an understanding of the complex problem of HIV/AIDS. The purpose of the study is to gain knowledge in how information is provided, and acquired, through modern strategies which aim at dimensions other than exclusively intellectual ones, to enable the individual to create his or her own understanding.

Material/Method: The results are based on a close study of the exhibition’s structure and bjects, followed by a thorough analysis of these according to contemporary theories within the areas of psychology, education and communication. The main theoretical approaches concern those of the human brain, perception, and information processing.

Main results: The exhibition uses compound multimedia and a theme based on feelings. The multimodal impressions presented seem to work on level with a favourable environment for brain based learning, and the emotional approach creates attention and attaches meaning to the objects through primitive gateways, as well as creating encouraging learning conditions by simply acknowledging them. Multi-level brain activity as well as the construction of meaning and positive learning conditions is vital for the creation of understanding.
