multimedia teaching materials
Multimedia teaching materials offer an interactive stroll through the “worlds” linked to the history of the Collections. Historic texts, objects with commentaries and maps make it possible to consider these themes from artistic, scientific, or historical perspectives.
MULTIMEDIA PROGRAMS TO CONSULT:
- The surrealists' museum: The objects of the Museum are evidence of another idea of art and beauty. Their “strangeness” from the four corners of the world fascinated surrealist artists and writers. This file highlights the link that associates the “first arts” with the Surrealists, who forced the history of art of the 20th century to reconsider its own tenets.
- The explorers: For six centuries, men have travelled the earth in search of other populations 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 discover.
The e-briefcase offers a body of documents that can be used as groundwork: to prepare a course, feed a debate, or serve as the basis for student work. It is also a space of dialogue and exchange, since your pedagogic efforts can be integrated into this tool.
