Digital culture and society | Filters and recommended doses
Cultura e società digitale | Filtri e dosi raccomandate
What is culture? Who do we mean when we talk about audience? Is it proper to resort to the use of digital devices at all costs?
This book aims to dismantle some widespread beliefs about the meaning of culture and its consumption. It opens new perspectives on the mutual knowledge between institution and audience. It investigates how technological devices are used and actually useful in museums. It overcomes the absolutism that is either for or against the introduction of digital technology in museums and invites us to investigate the technological dimension promptly and lucidly.
Page after page, it unfolds in examples and illustrations. It tries to make itself accessible; it narrates complex concepts, offering unconventional perspectives capable of enhancing research with the real implications of design practice.
