The Musée National de l’Histoire de l’Immigration, national museum of immigration, and the Plateforme internationale sur le Racisme et l’Antisémitisme PIRA (FMSH, EPHE) propose an international symposium on the treatment of racism and antisemitism in museum exhibitions.
This symposium seeks to explore what techniques and aesthetic choices historians, sociologists, anthropologists, geneticists, curators and artists have used in exhibitions dealing with racism and antisemitism? What do they take away from this experience, what do they regret? What choices were effective or not? What feedback did they get from the public? How can the effectiveness of the fight against racism and antisemitism through museography be evaluated? What are the political and social issues at stake in the museographic choices of such exhibitions (various pressure groups, conflicts and conflict resolution in museographic choices…)?
The questions will be discussed during these two days of study around round tables bringing together intellectuals, exhibition curators, artists and academics and speakers from the world of anti-racist associations.
