Des Maux, Des Musées, Des Mots in Lille, 2017-2018

In the first two years, bullying and violence in schools were the central themes of the project in the form of museum visits, body language workshops and photographic creations.

Following numerous exchanges with students and teaching teams, it seemed appropriate to change the subject of violence to that of otherness, the “Other”. Thus, the project entitled “I am as I am” this year allowed us to address the issue of identity and think about the difference, be it ethnic, social, cultural or religious. The issue of gender and girl-boy relationships was also discussed.

Progress

The project was punctuated by sessions in the museum, which took the form of exchanges and questioning around the works as well as by artistic sessions where Julie Maresq, photographer and videographer, and Esther Mollo, actress for a crossed approach, took part.

  • November-December 2017: Awareness-raising activities for students of the 4 classes during several visits to the museum (discovery of the museum, selected works, appropriation of works by image analysis, dialogue and exchange).
  • From February 2018: Intervention of Esther Mollo, actress and director (Diagonale Company) for a work of body language around the works: sublimation of emotions and role plays, from the works and thanks to the language of the body.
  • From April 2018: Intervention by Julie Maresq, photographer: staging students in their school and creating photos and artistic videos from the works studied.
  • Restitution of the program as part of the “Tous au musée! », June 21, 2018: exhibition of photos and videos of students and mediation by students with other young people
