Dos “públicos” nos museus : ensaio sobre os fundamentos teóricos que antecedem a definição de metodologias de trabalho
Joana Almeida Ribeiro
AbstractDetermining a concept by analysing the situations that generate public is only one possible way to address a concept defined by its polysemy. However, when it comes to describing and predicting the public for a particular situation, the difficulties arise. Besides being subordinate to the perspectives of the approach, the areas of interest of those who are devoted to the theme must be accounted for. It is important, therefore, to understand the tensions that favour both the semantic oscillation of the concept of public and the interpretive approach currently used in the characterization of museum visitors, often translated into ideal profiles. There is no intention of overcoming the antagonism that opposes the different dimensions of the concept of the public. Nonetheless, if continued attention is given to these hidden coexistent factors, their influence as an inhibitory cause of wider access to museums will decrease.
