Museum Exhibitions and Suspense. The Use of Screenwriting Techniques in Curatorial Practice

by Ariane Karbe

Museum Exhibitions and Suspense takes insights from screenwriting to revolutionise our understanding of exhibition curating.
Museum Exhibitions and Suspense addresses academics and students in the fields of museum studies, gallery studies, and heritage studies interested in how exhibitions function and in how to achieve dramaturgical effects like suspense. It also appeals to scholars and students within film studies who want to gain a deeper understanding of suspense. It provides an important resource for curators and other museum practitioners, and scriptwriters who intend to create stories with a wide audience appeal.
