Call for applications: Residency in new technologies in the museum sphere

IMéRA (Aix-Marseille University Institute for Advanced Study) and MuCEM (Museum of Civilizations of Europe and of the Mediterranean), in partnership with the CNRS MAP laboratory, are launching a joint call for applications for a residency (6 or 12 months) aimed at a researcher, either to conduct a theoretical reflection on the application of new technologies in exhibition systems, or to propose an innovative method of application of these new technologies in the museum sphere.

The digital revolution of the last decade has had a profound impact on museum practices, whether interactive applications, graphics, augmented reality or the exhibition of intangible heritage. These new systems raise questions not only about heritage activity in itself, but also, and in particular, the conditions for access and disclosure, as much for researchers or curators as for amateurs or the general public.

In this context, IMéRA and MuCEM, in partnership with the MAP Marseille laboratory - Models and Simulations for Architecture and Cultural Heritage (UMR CNRS/MCC 3495), are launching a joint call for applications for a residency aimed at a researcher (scientist or artist), either to conduct a theoretical reflection on the application of new technologies in exhibition systems, or to propose an innovative method of application of these new technologies in the museum sphere. For this purpose, the MAP laboratory will make available to the resident its expertise in digital modelling and representation of heritage objects, as well as its technical platform for 3D scanning, visualization and printing.
