The aim of the project as a whole was to respond to a clear problem: what can we see and say when we compare a group of works representing women, on the scale of several Dijon collections?
With the doors of the three structures open to them, the students learnt to sharpen their eye for the concept of a collection, to question a work, to place it in its context, to put it in space and to work together. In particular, they discovered how the different professions in the three cultural structures involved work, whether they be museums or contemporary art centres.
From observers, they became exhibition curators, and now, through the eyes of teenagers, can share their questions, observations, debates and views on the subject of the representation of women in art. A theme necessarily linked to the question of the role that society gives to women, past and present.
Using the language of the exhibition, they seize the power to question in images and objects what might previously have seemed taken for granted. They discover that an exhibition is never just about art, but also about historical battles, sociology and even politics. A question of men's points of view, but also of women's points of view.
