Abstract [en]

The main focus of this thesis is to analyze three architecture models, displayed at three major art museums. Using Roland Barthes concept of the mythology as a meta layer to the language of the exhibition, the study of the models is also a way of studying their visual and institutional environment – thus inquiring into how the display of architectural models, in the context of the modern art exhibition, activates and displaces the discourse of the exhibition. Taking into consideration the different kinds of objects on display (and those that are not), as well as their relation to the artist and the artworks, the discussion is largely affected by the notion of the representation, as well as the ideology of the modernistic narrative. Upon analyzing these aspects, it becomes clear that the models all convey narratives of their own, that in turn are activated and transformed in their dialogue with the rest of the exhibition. The models become part of the larger narrative that visualizes different ideas about modernism and modernity. But the analysis of the interplay between model and display also show how underlying narratives of nationalism and the relationship between art and architecture are a dominant pretext in the exhibitions.
