The exhibition form ”the white cube” has become a convention in the design of art exhibitions, which has its foundation in the modernism‟s ideal where the artwork was meant to speak for itself. The convention has become such as the information about the work of arts doesn‟t belong on the walls because it then might disrupt and take over the experience of the work of art‟s visual appearance. The aim of this thesis is to put light on this art exhibition form, through a museological art exhibition design and viewer perspective. The white cube‟s life will primarily be drawn from a present time perspective, using interviews with five visitors and two artists. The analysis will also be related to the white cube‟s historical context. As the aim says, this thesis won‟t result in clear answers. Instead I want to shed light upon the white cube and start a discussion of this convention within art museum, taking in account the visitors‟ experience of this lack of information in the form.
