I often think of a great art museum in Boston when I think of these debates re: media mediation of the outcome — Isabella Stewart Gardner, a wealthy woman way back, arranged for her home to be turned into a museum when she died but left express instructions that there be no captions on any of the pieces of art, so that visitors would only have their own senses and minds with them when they looked at everything. She didn’t want scholars ruining it for them; she wanted the experience to be pure. There’s something to that...
