Project description

Museums and their correlatives have been forced to change their ontology from that of history to economics, of education to entertainment. This mutation, a radical change of image, in everyday terms, will be considered in a one day workshop to examine the uses of new technologies in museums and their correlatives and explore their effects on the experiences of their visitors.
