Survey of the film Installation Art: Who Cares?
As part of the Access2CA sub-project a film was produced. Installation Art: Who Cares? is a 25 minute documentary film offering a glimpse behind the scenes of the European museum. It was created as an educational tool for the broad public to explain the problems that museum professionals deal with in the maintenance and presentation of installation art.

The film (even in an unfinished stage) provided fantastic content to organise a series of public events on the subject of the conservation of contemporary art for a broad (museum) public. A questionnaire was created as well as two starter questions for the discussion and a series of screenings were organised; most for a broad (museum) public and some for museum professionals. The screenings took place before the film was completed and provided invaluable information to the makers of the film to adjust and improve it for the final version. In addition, as part of the Access2CA research we were able to test the public’s response to the subject dealt with in the film, and to test if indeed the film as chosen format suited this type of information.
