Abstract

The focus/perspective described in this paper relies on the different experiences visitors have through the interaction with an information space, in this case an exhibition on social mobility. Two levels of knowledge appropriation are described. First, the exhibition takes visitors from a general / local environment; to an individual space; to an intimate introspection life and planning; and finally, to the integration with others. Second, the exhibition provides valuable information to understand social and economic issues; invites visitors to identify and see themselves reflected on the information; creates the environment to share ideas with others and learn from success stories; and lastly, the exhibition presents examples that show that social mobility is easier when one works within a group. Information design is at the core of the exhibition and brings together verbal graphic language using a variety of means to convey the message of social mobility through education.
