Abstract [en]

Guided tours for adults in Art Museums are often conducted in an anecdotal and rather disinterested fashion. This has been duly critized by researchers in the art eductional field. A series of initiatives on art educational activities for participants with neurodegenerative disorders have contributed to breaking this tradition. Since 2007, the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York has offered the Alzheimer's Project: Making Art Accessible to People with Dementia. The project has aimed at increasing the well-being of participants rather than improving their art-historical education. This has in turn led to greater focus on dialogue between the art, the guide and the participants, where the participants' own observations are given special attention. Several art institutions in the Nordic countries have been inspired by this method, for example in the form of meetings with memories (see fx http://www.alzheimerfonden.se/motenmedminnen ). To call a visitor by his or her name is one aspect of the method used. This paper focuses some of the discussions about the art pedagogical position taken in feminist and queer theory through examples from the educational practice. The aim is to explore how these art educational situations are staged in relation to the target group, people with dementia and how this can broaden the public engagement in dialogue with art.
