Une altermuséologie plurielle et participative / Raymond Montpetit.
"L'exposition est multiple et protéiforme, omniprésente et multidisciplinaire. Pratique culturelle des plus communes, elle connaît un succès indéniable auprès des publics et évolue en fonction des transformations et mutations des sociétés contemporaines. En quoi l'exposition prend-elle son autonomie tant vis-à-vis du secteur du patrimoine que de ses missions originelles d'éducation ? Pourquoi le concept de médiation culturelle doit-il être clarifié ? Forgeant son discours sur ces questions centrales, Serge Chaumier découvre de nouveaux territoires d'exploration et de développement pour l'avenir. En favorisant l'expérientiel, l'interprétation, l'engagement et la participation, l'exposition accompagne et illustre les formes nouvelles de l'action culturelle.

A concise history of one of the world's greatest and most comprehensive museum collections, from its founding in 1753. A product and symbol of the 18th-century Enlightenment, the British Museum is as iconic an expression of that cultural tendency as Johnson's Dictionary, the French Encyclopedie and Linnaean plant classification. Its collections embody the raw material of empiricism - the bringing together of things to enable the widest intellectual experiment to take place. James Hamilton explores the establishment of the Museum in the 1750s (from the bequest to the nation of the collections of Sir Hans Sloane); the chosen site of its location; the cultural context in which it came into being; the subsequent development, expansion and diversification of the Museum, both as a collection and as a building, from the early 19th to the 21st century; the controversy occasioned by some of its acquisitions; and the legacy and influence of the Museum nationally and globally.

  • Introduction: `This is not a protest. This is a process' 1. Political Protest 2. Disciplinary Crisis 3. Writing Resistance Conclusion: `Movements are born in the moments when abstract principles become concrete concerns'.

The Disobedient Museum: Writing at the Edge aims to motivate disciplinary thinking to reimagine writing about museums as an activity where resistant forms of thinking, seeing, feeling, and acting can be produced, and to theorize this process as a form of protest against disciplinary stagnation.Drawing on a range of cultural, theoretical, and political approaches, Kylie Message examines potential links between methods of critique today and moments of historical and disciplinary crisis, and asks what contribution museums might make to these, either as direct actors or through activities that sit more comfortably within their institutional remit. Identifying the process of writing about museums as a form of activism, that brings together and elaborates on cultural and political agendas for change, the book explores how a process of engaged critique might benefit museum studies, what this critique might look like, and how museum studies might make a contribution to discourses of social and political change.The Disobedient Museum is the first volume in Routledge's innovative `Museums in Focus' series and will be of great interest to scholars and students in the fields of Museum, Heritage, Public History, and Cultural Studies. It should also be essential reading for museum practitioners, particularly those engaged with questions about the role of museums in regard to social activism and contentious contemporary challenges.

Tara McPherson asks what might it mean to design-from conception-digital tools and applications that emerge from contextual concerns of cultural theory and from a feminist concern for difference. This question leads to the Vectors lab, which for a dozen years has experimented with digital scholarship at the intersection of theory and praxis.

How might we document, curate, collect, and exhibit performance? Histories of Performance Documentation traces the many ways in which museums have approached performance works from the 1960s onwards. Considering the unique challenges of documenting live events including hybrid and interactive arts, games, virtual and mixed reality performance, this collection investigates the burgeoning role of the performative in museum displays, and examines a number of interdisciplinary documentation practices which have influenced the field of performance documentation. Gabriella Giannachi and Jonah Westerman bring together interviews and essays by leading curators, conservators, artists and scholars from institutions including MoMA, Tate, SFMOMA and the Whitney. Developing from recent approaches which argue that discussions of performance should not focus purely on the live event, and that documentation should not be read solely as a process of retrospection, these chapters build a radical new framework for thinking about the relationship between performance and its documentation - and how documentation might shape ideas of what constitutes performance in the first place.

Die Reformation zeitigte auf dem Gebiet der Kirchenmusik weitreichende Folgen, die weit über den Einfluss der 36 deutschen Lutherlieder hinausgehen. Die Weitertradierung kunstvoller lateinischer Kirchenmusik durch die lutherischen Lateinschulen entspricht der Musikanschauung der Reformatoren. Die differente interkonfessionelle Praxis in den evangelischen und katholischen Territorien wird besonders am Beispiel bikonfessioneller Reichsstädte wie Augsburg und Regensburg verdeutlicht.

"Dans les Mélanges de littérature, d'histoire et de philosophie d'Alembert rassemble ses écrits sur la Société des gens de lettres, la grammaire, les probabilités, l'inoculation, la poésie, l'étude, la traduction, l'harmonie des langues, le goût, la religion, la musique, l'histoire, les Éléments de philosophie, etc. En 1753 l'objectif est de rendre accessible le Discours préliminaire en dehors de l'Encyclopédie. En mars 1759, elle est interdite. La nouvelle édition des Mélanges, revue pendant les années sombres, va expliciter l'organisation des connaissances à partir des facultés de l'entendement. Les Mélanges expliquent l'Encyclopédie. Ils commencent par elle et se terminent en 1767 par l'article GENÈVE. Jamais réédités depuis le XVIIIe siècle, ils sont le livre de philosophie du géomètre qui écrit des réflexions pour un public "las de mots, & qui voulait des choses"."--Page 4 of cover.

This book offers an interactionist perspective on theories of public representation, knowledge and immigration in museum institutions. Examining how a Franco-German museum exhibition represents immigrants and exposes public stereotypes, the analysis follows the process of the production and reception of the exhibition as it travelled from Paris to Berlin. The author proposes a microsociological contextualisation analysis integrating discourse analysis and ethnography to compare formats of museum work, social interaction in the exhibition and mass media debates. Visitor reception of the different exhibition versions reveals the symbolic nature of interactions in museums, for example concerning conflicting political voices and accusations of censorship. Depending on the institutional context, interactions in the museums are geared towards securing immigrants a place in national collective memory, towards carrying out debate on integration, or providing opportunities for personal encounters and reflection beyond national categorisation. This book will appeal to students and researchers interested in work on the intersection of sociology, cultural studies, and discursive psychology, in methods of discourse analysis and ethnography; and to practitioners working in museums.

  • UNESCO's humanism : the challenge of "unity in diversity"
  • UNESCO's early years : human rights, high hopes and harsh realities
  • Éducation permanente and the "crisis of education"
  • Learning to be : the Faure report
  • The Delors report and the 1990s
  • The struggle of ideologies.
With a focus on lifelong learning, this book examines the shifts that UNESCO's educational concepts have undergone in reaction to historical pressures and dilemmas since the founding of the organization in 1945. The tensions between UNESCO's humanistic worldview and the pressures placed on the organization have forced UNESCO to depart from its utopian vision of lifelong learning, while still claiming continuity. Elfert interprets the history of lifelong learning in UNESCO as part of a much bigger story of a struggle of ideologies between a humanistic-emancipatory and an economistic-technocratic worldview. With a close study of UNESCO's two education flagship reports, the Faure and Delors reports, Elfert sheds light on the global impact of UNESCO's professed humanistic goals and its shifting influence on lifelong learning around the world.
