With the development of technology, new media evolved into a decisive tool in promoting exhibitions and reaching out to audiences. In addition, new media became an integral part of exhibition spaces, and – in some cases – even artworks themselves. Yet, despite the significant potential of new media, there is still only limited existing scientific data in this field. The museum community aims to grasp the status quo and likely developments of new media technologies.
To address this gap of knowledge, MUSEUM BOOSTER conducts an ongoing survey on the current usage of new media and trends in this field. The key goals are to analyse the status quo and to provide an outlook on future technologies and trends.
A report on new media and innovation usage among museums around the world, based on recent research and a survey conducted with 128 museums from 41 countries. Selected experts provide an outlook on the status quo and technology trends in museums.
A report based on structured interviews with museum managers and new media experts as well as a survey among museums, which organised the most successful exhibitions.
