Des musées américains font la chasse aux perches à selfie Aux Etats-Unis, les musées sont de plus en plus nombreux à interdire les perches à selfie, par peur qu’elles n’abîment leurs collections. Ainsi, le Hirshborn Museum and Sculpture Garden de Washington a proscrit la fameuse perche ce mois-ci; et le Museum of Fine Arts de Houston ainsi que le Met (Metropolitan Museum of Art) de New York prévoient de le faire très prochainement. Interrogée par le New York Times, Deborah Ziska, en charge des relations publiques à la National Gallery of Art de Washington, explique ne pas vouloir “mettre toutes les oeuvres sous verre” pour les protéger des dangereuses perches, et préfère donc interdire ces dernières. Sree Sreenivasan, responsable du digital au Met, invoque, lui, les risques d’accidents: “Nous avons plein de balcons dont vous pouvez tomber, de marches que vous pouvez rater.” Et d’ajouter: “C’est une chose de prendre une photo à bout de bras, c’est autre chose de la prendre à une distance équivalente à trois bras.

Dear museums: the time is right to embrace mobile | Culture professionals network Dear museums, we love you. You inspire, engage and educate. We visit you to have an experience, to learn something new, or for a day out with family and friends. We love you because you actively bring change and development to our communities. You just make us feel good. And it seems that you London Museums are having a bit of a moment. But now we need to have a word. It's high time for mobile In fact, a recent study at the New York MoMA found that a whopping 74% of visitors brought a mobile device with them. The implications become more evident when you realise that the UK has one of the highest penetrations of smartphones, with 58% of the population owning one in 2012, and almost one in five (19%) owning a tablet. And these people are doing a lot more than just talking. We suspect that you want to meet this growing demand, and provide your tech-savvy visitors with what they've come to expect in their daily lives – access to digital information – to enhance the experience.

Les musées sur les réseaux sociaux : la guerre des chiffres n’aura pas lieu Mercredi 26 octobre dernier, le musée du Louvre publiait un communiqué de presse (relayé par Europe 1 et Metro France puis par Le Point). Pour accompagner la publication de cette information, j’ai été interviewé par Le Figaro pour une brève parue le lendemain. Cet article, rédigé rapidement par une journaliste dont les réseaux sociaux ne sont, de toute évidence, pas la spécialité, a suscité bon nombre de réactions dans la communauté informelle des muséogeeks. Aussi, Omer Pesquer et moi-même vous proposons de revenir sur les questions de classements des musées, du nombre de fans et de la pertinence des grilles de lecture, complétées par les réflexions et les remarques formulées par les membres du groupe MuzeoNum sur Facebook. Disclaimer : cet article a été rédigé avant que j’intègre le musée du quai Branly. 400 000 fans et moi, et moi, et moi Si on compare le « score » du Louvre avec les gros musées internationaux, un élément primordial est à prendre en compte : la langue. Pour conclure

Les stratégies virtuelles des musées : table ronde au Centre Pompidou Le Centre Pompidou organisait le 26 mai 2011 une table ronde en forme d’annonce de son nouveau site à venir, le Centre Pompidou Virtuel. Au centre du débat, la question de la forme que peut, doit prendre le musée sur Internet à l’époque des échanges globalisés et immédiats de l’information et de l’importance croissante des réseaux sociaux dans les stratégies de trafic de ces institutions de plus en plus contraintes par des objectifs de rentabilité. Pour en parler, la table ronde comptait Alain Seban, directeur du Centre Pompidou, Marc Sands, directeur des publics et de l’information de la Tate Gallery, Carlo d’Asaro Biondo, vice-président de Google, Bernard Stiegler, philosophe et directeur de l’Institut de Recherche et d’Innovation, et était modéré par Brice Couturier, producteur de l’émission Du grain à moudre sur France Culture.. Chaque invité est intervenu pour présenter ses réflexions et/ou ses projets. Carlo d’Asaro Biondo (Google) : Le musée virtuel ? On sait faire.

Find out more about the book and order your copy: Museums Forward: social media and the web The Business of Being Social: What Museums Need to Understand for the Future By Adam Reed Rozan, Marketing Manager, Oakland Museum of CaliforniaA group of 30 or so contemporary adults, representing a wide range of ages, meet each Thursday after work at a local museum.

The museum also hosts live drawing classes, sing along story telling for young families, gardening, in-gallery music performances, book clubs, yoga and tai chi. The museum in the example above is the museum we all want to see, visit, and work for, regardless of all the variables. Bibliography Chan, Seb. Kluger, Joe.

Is Responsive Web Design right for your museum's mobile content strategy? - plein air interactive For awhile now all the cool kids on the Web have been chatting about Responsive Web Design as an efficient approach for designing website layouts across a myriad of device types. In fact, about 10 million web pages mention it. So why all the hubbub? Responsive web design can make it easier for you to maintain the code base of your site for the multitude of devices - think mobile phones and tablets in particular - that are exploding onto the market these days. With a responsive approach, you maintain a single set of templates for your web pages, then use media queries, a flexible HTML grid and "flexible images" to adjust the template layout depending on the type of device requesting your page. The purpose of this article is not to dive into the technical details, but if you are interested in the nuts and bolts you can read the quintessential overview on the subject on A List Apart. Less is more? Having one set of templates to manage sounds great. You need a savvy team.

iliou melathronUsing Twitter as cognitive ressource in museums | iliou melathron [German version of the article] “Constant starring on smart phones makes concentration impossible”. “If everybody is starring on their displays nobody pays attention to the exhibition”. “Smart phones are competing with the object on the wall”. These are the typical reservations towards tweeting in museums. Concentration and silence as well as community experience and dialogueIn the following I want to outline the experience of our latest tweet-up in the Jüdisches Museum München (Jewish Museum Munich) and thereby counter the above listed preconceptions about tweeting in cultural institutions. Photographing as process of adaption and documentation of subjective experiences of an exhibitionIn most German museums taking pictures is not permitted. For tweet-ups the restrictions of taking pictures are often eased, suspended and clarified insofar that participants can take pictures and post them. Süß. Tweeting as state of intoxication and group therapy?

What did I learn form attending the conference MuseumNext?- about Oprah,engaging and truly listening I heard in 2008 about an American actress who asked herself all the time 'What would Oprah do' and started to find out by following her advice and blogging about it. Attending the congres MuseumNext made me think of this actress, she is called Robyn Okrant. MuseumNext 2011 in Edinburgh was all about how museums and galleries can benefit from new technology and the latest web trends. I heard so much good advice during the conference that it was sometimes somewhat overwhelming. Just a splash (at random and very unorganized) of all the advices and comments on day 1:Lobby for you bright ideas within in your own organisationAs a museum, you can let the visitor see himself through the museumUsing social media: focus on visitors voice, letting them hear a personal voice from within the museumYou really have to listen to your audience! How was my ' Edinburgh score' of engaging and all so far? Yep, Oprah. PS Thank you Rich Mintz, for being a truly engaging and listening type of a guy!
