Éditorial n°3
Catherine Chomarat-Ruiz
This third issue of the journal is a bit special in that it offers a double issue, that is to say two thematic files, respectively directed by Claire Azéma and Sophie Fétro. These Acts 1 and 2 have in common that they deal with "The Arts of Doing". Reading these two files and the entirety of our third delivery of articles, three ideas come to mind. - 2021/11
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. - 2021/07

Thematic Issues

Les Arts de faire : Acte 2 - Design du peu, pratiques ordinaires
Directed by Sophie Fétro
Design du peu, pratiques ordinaires constitutes act II of the thematic dossier devoted to the Arts of making. It questions the creative practices in a context of scarcity, reduction and lack, but also those who decide to make a deliberate choice out of the few means, a happy, critical, sometimes militant art of making, betting that a poetry can emanate from the few things. - 2021/12

Kim Sacks
Emmanuel Guy's book, Le Jeu de la guerre de Guy Debord, L'émancipation comme projet, discusses the history of the Jeu de la guerre in relation to the history of what it is the custom to call design. Through this complex historical perspective, the book questions the emancipation strategy from the society of the spectacle. - 2021/12

Words of Authors

Jalons pour une histoire de la Biennale internationale design Saint-Étienne (8). Entretien avec Anya Sirota et Jean Louis Farges (studio Akoaki)
Virginie Belle
Née en 1998 de la volonté de quelques professeurs de l'école supérieure des Beaux-arts de Saint-Étienne, soutenue et portée par son directeur d'alors Jacques Bonnaval, la biennale internationale du design de Saint-Étienne est devenue aujourd'hui un événement sinon incontournable du moins majeur dans le domaine, comme dans un paysage local et régional singulier. Le projet de recherche « Une histoire de la biennale, incises et bifurcations », se propose de revenir sur plus de trente ans de design et d'exposition du design à Saint-Étienne. Un cycle d'interviews en participe. - 2021/12

Luxe & Kitsch : le kitsch, une fatalité dans l’industrie du luxe ?
Alice Leblanc
In this research, we need to understand the impact of the “kitsch” in the creation of luxury objects. This industry faces a growing demand, induced by the need to get out from a painful life through some objects that’s bring an extract soul. Therefore, it is complex to stay creative in a society in perpetual motion. By reviving the past and crating pastiches, the kitsch revealed himself as the perfect creative vector for luxury brands. - 2021/11
