Over the past two decades, a rich literature has emerged on the museum as a distinctive social phenomenon in modern society. The ideas and writings of social theorists Michel Foucault and Pierre Bourdieu have been highly influential on writers such as Eilean Hooper-Greenhill, Tony Bennett and Carol Duncan who have tried to focus on the social function of changes in museum design . Hooper-Greenhill’s 1992 study ‘Museums and the Shaping of Knowledge’ analysed several European museums using Foucault’s concept of epistemes, and the way the epistemes have shaped knowledge.
