Nowadays, visiting museums is a common practice for a large part of the population. However, beyond their function of display, what do we know about the life of museums? This course examines what takes place behind the scenes in these institutions. Among the topics to be discussed in this class are: how the exhibitions are produced from their conception phase to their realization; what potentials and challenges the new technologies represent for museums; what actions are being taken to reach the widest possible audience; what phenomenon is pushing certain large museums to become brands that can be exported abroad in a globalized world; and what political, societal, economic and diplomatic role museums play in our societies. A big part of the seminar will take place in Musée Granet in Aix.
