Éditorial n°2
Catherine Chomarat-Ruiz
Born during the lockdown, is Design, Arts, Media a confined magazine? It is undeniable that it testifies to the health crisis that has turned our lives upside down. However, it offers texts, interviews and criticisms that invite us to go beyond this period. These writings will thus have the value of an archive for young researchers who, thanks to this very special moment, are already among the living forces of design. - 2021/10

The Journal Design, Arts, Médias has just been born. What is its purpose? What are the means she has equipped herself to achieve her goal? On what principles is it based? These are the three questions this editorial attempts to answer. - 2020/12

Thematic Issues

Design & industrie à l’ère de l’Anthropocène
Directed by Gwenaëlle Bertrand, Maxime Favard
Ce présent recueil de textes constitue une nécessité conceptuelle qui ne s’accomplit qu’à travers l’épreuve complémentaire du design. Réciproquement, les designers peuvent trouver du sens à ce travail de recherche comme autant d’éléments analytiques à disposition pour réinterroger les pratiques. - 2021/07
L'Exposition de design
Directed by Catherine Chomarat-Ruiz
When we published the call for contributions "The design exhibition", we imagined receiving proposals which would question the specificities of design exhibitions by comparing them with art exhibitions, by returning to an experience of curating, by immersing oneself in the design project as an exhibition space ... Our intention was to lay the foundations for a comparative expology of design exhibitions: the articles collected did not disappoint our expectations. - 2020/12

Pro_création. Lire l’exposition au-delà des murs
Cassandra Bonnafous, Valentine Mathieu, Frédérique Moal
The Master 2 diploma "Design, Arts, Media" is granted at the end of defenses where we ask, in addition to an academic thesis of research, to produce a project and put it in space. In order to create links between these Students of Master 2 and the Bachelor 3 of the same stream, an exhibition of these projects (promotion 2019-2020) was organized in the premises of the School of Arts of the Sorbonne. On this occasion, three young designers turned into critics in order to question, beyond this event, the contribution of digital technology to exhibitions. - 2021/10

Words of Authors

Jalons pour une histoire de la Biennale internationale design Saint-Étienne (5). Entretien avec Anne-Marie Fèvre
Christophe Bardin
Born in 1998 out of the desire of a few professors at the Saint Etienne School of Fine Arts, supported and promoted by its then director Jacques Bonnaval, the Saint Etienne International Design Biennial has now become an event that is, if not unmissable, at least major in the field, as well as in a singular local and regional landscape. The research project "A history of the biennial, incises and bifurcations", aims to look back over thirty years of design and design exhibitions in Saint-Étienne. A series of interviews is part of it. - 2021/07

Design et imaginaire : les oubliés des vols spatiaux habités
Coralie Lhabitant
In this article, the aim is to understand how the spatial imaginary fits between specialists and the public, with whom it has a special relationship due to the functioning of space agencies on a public background. We will see how it is used to communicate or educate, but does not seem to be reinvested in the very design of manned space flight. - 2020/12
Déshérence territoriale et écologie
Camille Mançon
This article examines how dormant territories can inspire an ecological revolution to the designer through the intersecting practices of design and anthropology. - 2020/12
