Today visitors’ experiences in museums is increasingly mediated by screens of the devices in their possession. In this film, Manuel Correa focuses on this behavior by interviewing numerous players, including gallery owners Andy Sylvester, Mohammad Salemy; artists Jan Wallace, Julieta Aranda, Antonia Hirsch; the critic Clint Burnham, and anthropologist Wade Davis. The result is a reflection on the ways in which technology is changing the methods of approach to art, and the creation of a new public virtually connected to the museum only through Internet: from the relocation of art via the network involves the user’s achieving a kind of freedom stage, although it lacks the value of an ‘offline’ experience–the experience felt with the whole body and released from the screen’s inexpressiveness. If everything can be experienced on-line, what is the current meaning of a museum exhibition? Will there be a new role for galleries and museums?
