Study (2018/2019)

In January 2018 the study "Belvedere Before" was conducted by the Lab for Cognitive Research in Art History (CReA) in cooperation with the University of Tübingen, the EVAlab and the Austrian Gallery Belvedere. The aim of the interdisciplinary team, consisting of art historians, sociologists, psychologists and computer scientists, was firstly to explore the current possibilities of mobile eye tracking for museum research. Secondly, the team took the chance of a major rearrangement of the permanent collection to find out how visitors perceive the prior constellation of artworks through the methods of mobile eye tracking, subjective mapping and questionnaire. In January 2019, the study “Belvedere After” followed in order to compare the two museum presentation contexts.
