Abstract:This article considers the tradition of ‘Bildung’ in relation to the museum by drawing on recent self-formation theories developed by the Danish social analysts Lars Geer Hammerhøj and Lars-Henrik Schmidt. It is argued that today the museum can be used as a platform for self-formation; where the museum user employs the museum narratives and the art works in a self-formative and personal way. Furthermore; the article debates the pedagogical challenge; which faces the museum today; suggesting that the museum should take a more active role museum; becoming a partner for dialogue instead of a lecturer.
