L’art du diorama (1700-2000)

The Art of the Diorama (1700-2000)
Edited by Noémie Étienne and Nadia Radwan

Twenty years ago, Publics & Musées dedicated an issue to dioramas. This device, which has since been updated in various forms, particularly in contemporary art, is the subject of a new contribution. This reappraisal problematizes characteristic aspects of the dioramas, such as their narrative power, their hyperrealistic lure, as well as their specific relationship to reality and knowledge. The aim is to refocus the diorama on a study of museum institutions, from production to reception, with an emphasis on their materiality and some of their extreme forms.
