MULTIMEDIA PROGRAMS TO CONSULT:
- The museum of surrealists : The objects of the museum are evidence of another idea of art and beauty, their “strangeness” from the four corners of the world created surrealist artists and writers. This dossier highlights the link associating “first arts” to the Surrealists, who led art history of the 20th century to reconsider its own tenets.
- The explorers : For six centuries, men have circled the earth in the discovery of other peoples, civilizations, and cultures. Armed with your virtual planisphere, follow in the footsteps of Marco Polo, James Cook, Bougainville, Michel Leiris, or Mary Kingsley: lives to travel through.... : lives to travel through.
