The Implications of Selfie Culture on Art Museums

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Paris’ Centre Pompidou director of communications, Benoit Parayre said that art museum visitors have come to the point where they spend more time on taking pictures or selfies than focusing on the artwork itself.

“They take a picture, and don’t even stop in front of the paintings and discover it.” He said to Bloomberg.

Furthermore, Parayre prefers that if visitors took a bit more time with the actual art, and to actually speak about the piece of art and share it with the people, they can share it with prior to taking photos of it.

“Discover it, and open your heart to it,” Parayre says. “Then you can take a picture.”

He personally said that he noticed a common trait where people spend more time taking pictures than looking at pieces of art, says Benoit Parayre.

Though on the other hand, Parayre deemed that prohibiting any sort of photography in museums would just end in vain considering that visitors would most likely still do it, “Because it’s even more fun to take a picture when it’s forbidden,” he said.

In the end, every museum has their own take on policies regarding photography, some partially allow it and others would entirely dismiss such idea and entirely depends on each museum managements’ approach toward the selfie phenomenon.
