Elena PRUS

Journal Title:International Journal of Communication Research
Abstract


The present study discusses actual problems on the evolution of museums at worldwide level, under the influence of some global phenomena, such as the unprecedented development of cultural tourism, consumism, rur-urbanisation and reurbanization of the society. Globalization of culture, on one side, and grasping of todays world as a museum, on the other, become the acts of a performance staged for the rashed and stressed modern traveller. The cultural touristic pattern becomes prevailing in the postmodern society, transforming the institutions into museums and everyday life - into a work of art and a total Museum. The present investigation analyzes the new significance and role of the museum in the post/postmodern society, starting from the understanding of the special regime imposed to it by globalization, and attempts at establishing its position and functions in the overwhelming, allembracing culture of divertissement of today.
