Exposer le design : formes et intentions

Abstract : Exhibitions have played an important role in the design development and acknowledgementof this activity. What about today in France? What are the intentions - or communicationaleffects - likely to be produced? Based on a sample of five different contemporary designexhibitions, we first describe the patterns as they are experienced by the public through tothe exhibition displays. With a methodology inspired by phenomenology and museology,we aim to understand the intentions underpinning by these exhibitions. The description ofthe visit situations requires a specific stance of the researcher who must be both an academicresearcher and an involved visitor. From an educational level, the design exhibition intentionis thus considered as a museographic « leçon de choses ». It is also a celebration exerciseaiming at showcasing the designers and their works. Consequently, design exhibitionintention contributes to the economic valorization of goods. Militant positions on social andenvironmental issues are less importantly found in the exhibitions studied. The axiologicaldimension of design exhibition intention focuses on the consideration given to the visitorhimself.
