MUSEOLOGICAL CONTEXT• Museum = an institution “[...] which acquires, conserves, researches, communicates and exhibits the tangible and intangible heritage of humanity and its environment for the purposes of education, study and enjoyment” (Desvallées & Mairesse, 2010, p. 57).• Acquirement and conservation of Danish media heritage is done by the State Library and to some extent by the Danish Broadcasting Corporation (DR).• Research is done at the universities.• Which leaves the communication and exhibition of our media heritage as the Media Museums unique task.

  7. 7. EXHIBITING RADIO• Conceptualizing radio in a museological context as artefacts to be exhibited.• Delineating these intangible artefacts.• Designing strategies for exhibiting radio artefacts.• Implementing these strategies in actual exhibitions.• Analyzing how the audience experience the exhibits through user studies.
  8. 8. FIELDS OF INQUIRY• Museology.• Exhibition design and design theory.• Communication (the exhibition as medium).• Museum didactics.• Media studies (radio history).• Cultural memories studies (cultural heritage and nostalgia).• User studies (e.g. video ethnography).
  9. 9. NOSTALGIA• Retroculture and nostalgia is a prominent trend in todays media (e.g. Mad Men and The Chronicle, DK).• Therefore: Can this trend be used as a motivating design strategy for exhibiting radio history?• Case: The Danish Rock Museum.
