Nous et les autres, des préjugés au racisme

Musée de l’Homme, Paris
Temporary exhibition

The “Musée de l’Homme”, located in the prestigious Palais de Chaillot, is one of the most important places in Paris for culture and tourism. In this temporary exhibition, the museum attempts to develop the difficult but necessary question of racism. The path begins with a 360° audiovisual production that activates the unconscious springs that lead us to construct stereotypes.

The space is then treated in such a way as to be immediately identified: an airport hall, a non-place, without any particular cultural connotation. The multimedia production broadcast in different touch screens completes the experience of deconstructing these prejudices. The next space, a rotunda, is dedicated to the political history of races and the history of science, with objects in display cases and graphic content. Digital labels complete the information.

The visit continues with a strong sequence: 3 thematic “cubes” that follow one another in the space. They are located chronologically and linked by an angular path; interior devices (totem object, audiovisual production and graphic content) are repeated in each of them as elements of the processes of manipulation of these populations.

The Scenographic path is articulated in a rhythm punctuated by strong immersions and more classical spaces, often refined in a concern of cohesion and comprehension of the scientific content by all the publics.
