La lecture de contes au musée. Une animation comme dispositif de médiation présentielle

Abstract : Museums diversify their offerings and multiply opportunities for visitors to discover the collections. Amongst the recognized functions of the museum, the animation function is the most recent one. Our subject of study is about an animation of reading stories, animated by external cultural actors, in a museum of art and society. So, why read stories in a temporary exhibition? To what extent does reading stories at the museum promote the transmission of cultural heritage? We want to identify and understand the motivations and aims of a complex mediation system at different levels. Our information research is carried out through interviews with its mains actors, observations and recordings of readings and questionnaires for visitors. The results confirm three key findings. At first, tales represent a literary heritage confronted in the museum space with the artistic heritage. Then, the reading sessions emotionally impact the visitors in a face-to-face mediation. Finally, animation is more represented in the cultural world of the show than it is in museums. These three statements suggest that the opening of the museum to other cultural and artistic fields is beneficial and pleasing to the visitor. It nevertheless requires creative and lasting collaboration between cultural partners.
