Imaginer les visiteuses : Scripts de genre et conception d’une exposition

Abstract : Recent studies has shown gendered stereotypes and representations at work in exhibitions about scientific culture, in their scenography or their medias. This article examines the process of exhibit design and its organization from a gender perspective. It is situated in the wake of studies on professional practices in museums which, behind the scenes, help to produce the spaces and contents available to the public. The article provides a critical perspective on gender in the museum, from a fieldwork on the design of an exhibition. This research focuses on the production of a feminine visitor figure during the design of a video game exhibition, conceived by a center for scientific, technical and industrial culture. It considers the exhibition not only as a specific material space for a public purpose, but also as a project around which a diversity of actors come together. This implies observing all the participants in its design, their interactions, their cooperation but also their resistance.
