Laurie Hanquinet - New book published

Laurie Hanquinet new book 'Du musee aux pratiques culturelles' has just been published by the University of Brussels.

This book identifies six different ‘cultural profiles’ of visitors, each synthesizing a particular relationship to modern and contemporary art museums. A visit to an art museum can reflect a love of art, a search for new experiences, a certain classicism, an opportunity to see friends, a window on the world or an exceptional outing to see beautiful things. Moving away from clichés, this book provides a nuanced picture of the audiences of modern and contemporary art museums, while discussing current major sociological theories of cultural participation.
