Abstract [en]

Scenographic and artistic interventions and interactions have gained in significance within the fields of exhibition and museum design since the 1990s. This article specifically focuses on historic house museums, and how they use their theatrical and scenographic assets in order to recharge and reinvent themselves. The author discusses the different aims and tasks these interventions and interactions take on, and the attitudes that make them happen. Further, the author argues that the field of art history should address these changes in museological practice, and should investigate new possible readings of the historic house, the objects within, and artistic interventions. This would also show the relevance of art history to the field of critical heritage studies in a period that is characterized by the heritage boom and the new experience industry.
