excerpt:...In order to be able to discuss how the space in the exhibitionary complex is governed by the multiple users of it, I will reason towards a better outline of the term space in this respect using Christian Norberg-Schulz’s theories on space. This will lead me to the culmination of a spatial territory in the exhibitionary complex over which three groups that are active in this complex – architect, curator and artist – seek to have control. The subject in this endeavour is the viewer which every group will try to activate in its own way. After contemplating on the theoretical side of the matters discussed in this thesis, I find it of importance to elaborate on the practical consequences of the spatial development. Therefore, as a tool to combine the ideas uttered in the theoretical part, I will finish this thesis with a case-study in which I will set these ideas free on the grounds of a museum that offers interesting features for reflection: the Stiftung Wilhelm Lehmbruck Museum – Zentrum Internationale Skulptur.
