GUIDED VISIT CARDS TO DOWNLOAD:

exhibition teaching materials

The function of the teaching materials is to allow the teachers to guide their students through the temporary exhibitions by explaining the exhibition's purpose and plan. The materials will provide suggestions for research and class activities related to certain exhibited works and linked to the curriculum.

DOWNLOADABLE EXHIBITION MATERIALS:

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.

e-briefcase

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.

E-BRIEFCASE NO. 1: SOME IMAGES TO THINK ABOUT THE OTHER, FROM THE MYTH OF THE GOOD SAVAGE TO THE COLONIAL EXHIBITION OF 1931

This version will allow you to use it even if it is not connected to the internet. You can also capture and use the different texts and images that make up the e-briefcase separately.
