Description

AN IMMERSIVE EXHIBITION OF CONCEPTS AND IDEAS THAT TACKLES THE ISSUES FACING SOCIETY, AND CONFRONTS VISITORS WITH THEIR OWN REPRESENTATIONS.

Based on the most recent discoveries in biology, the humanities and social sciences, the exhibition analyses the phenomena of racialization and demonstrates that racism is a social construct.

ME AND THEM: AN EXPERIENCE OF “SENSE”

What are the mechanisms that produce racism? Visitors take stock of the processes of categorization, hierarchization and essentialization at work to create ‘‘ordinary” racism.

RACE AND HISTORY: AN EXPERIENCE OF “KNOWLEDGE”

How did the idea of a so-called hierarchy of “races” evolve? Historical examples serve to examine the scientifi c elaboration of the idea of “race” set against the background of France’s complex colonial context. Three fi lms illustrate cases of state institutionalized racism: racial segregation in the United States, Nazism and the Rwandan genocide.

THE CURRENT SITUATION: AN EXPERIENCE OF “CONSCIOUSNESS”

What do science and genetics say about racism? What do the humanities and social sciences teach us about racism and discrimination in modern French society? Scientifi c analysis presented on immersive devices questions and reports on the issues facing society today.
