DEMO - Exhibiting and Demonstrating Interactive Media

A symposium programmed for the Printemps des Sciences humaines et sociales of the Maison européenne des sciences de l'homme et de la société de Lille (MESHS), in conjonction with the research project Praticables* and in partnership with EnsadLab, a research laboratory of the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs (Paris - France) and Le Fresnoy, Studio national des arts contemporains (Tourcoing- France).

Engineers are used to creating demonstrators to present, test and improve their products. Artists, on the other hand, relie on exhibitions to present their work. Scientists consider this model of the fine arts exhibition as unfit for their purposes. The question, however, that needs to be addressed is how to rethink the exhibition so that it is no longer conceived as a showcase for finished artworks but as a truly experimental environment for the testing and creation of artistic experiences in collaboration with the audience. In other words, is it possible to combine exhibition and demonstration, genuine artistic experiences with the promotion of technological innovation, balancing artistic and technological aspects to the greatest benefit of both?

*'Practicable' - The Work of Art as Dispositif: Setting the Stage for Audience.
A project funded by the 'Agence Nationale de la Recherche' (ANR) and supervised by the MESHS for the Universities of Valenciennes and Lille (Calhiste, Ceac, Geriico laboratories).
