In collaboration with:
Massachusetts Institute of Technology

The project Ergonomie Jeunes Publics studies the impact of mediations between humans and technologies on human activities. The aim is to define, adapt and improve mediation devices for projects designed for a young public, in order to think about how the youngest can access and be interested in contemporary and modern art.

Three exploratory studies were led in 2012 in cultural institutes partners of the project and allowed us to understand and comment on museum visits (children and adults) and activities organized in various production and creation studios for teenagers. To answer those issues, we will use several theoretical frameworks: NAM creative activity (Decortis, 2008) and MARO museum activity: meeting with an artwork (Bationo-Tillon, 2009).

With the results and the collaboration of all partners, we will continue the project Ergo J’Plus in three directions: conceiving resources for the Rmn-Grand Palais around the mediation of sensitive activities ; conceiving transition instruments to support the transition between production/creation studios and artworks in the Studio 13/16 at the Centre Pompidou ; a study of young visitors’ experiences in educational and museum situations (primary and secondary education).
