Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this paper, the authors want to relate the issue of "learning in museums" with "aesthetic education". The contribution is focused on the voluntary and self-organized learning in museums. The objects and the variety of their presentations in regard to the visitor are analyzed, focusing the polymorphism of learning processes, related to aesthetic experiences. This heterogeneous field is reflected from the perspective of visitor research, museology and educational psychology by reflecting the conceptualization of learning processes, their identification by empirical research and the intersection of the different perspectives. Finally, open questions and perspectives for further research concerning learning in museums are discussed.
