Speaker at the conference Time Forms - The temporalities of aesthetic experience, McGill University, Montreal.

What is the role of museum architecture in the light of participatory museum strategies? How does architecture involve processually and ontologically and how does museum architecture make you a co-creator on an experiential level? The paper approaches these questions from two perspectives of time that interact in museum architecture: clock-time and duration. Clock-time: the temporal conditions of opening hours, of minutes spent waiting to get your ticket and enter, of the orchestrating sequences of your visit. And duration, as we know from Henri Bergson is the flow of consciousness, of becoming, of creation. Duration is our inner sensing of time, the time of ourselves. The presentation discusses experiences of time from Louvre-Lens, Louvre, Palais de Tokyo and Moca Cleveland focusing on how a process like entering can be considered a matter of changing intensities.
