Culture 2.0

22, June 2010  |  Published : Seminars  | 

The internet has deeply affected the cultural sphere through digital mutations. What drew the attention first was the impact of the digitalization phenomenon and the dematerialization of cultural industries : it was followed by gains of productivity, convergences, cooperation and competition betweens traditional actors of the cultural sector and actors from the digital sphere, a destabilization of the modes of valorization, exploitation and distribution of the contents, and the exploration of new economic models. Now, the attention is actually shifting from the contents to the users and the digital cultural practices. This shift makes it crucial to study how the softwares use, the online services, the combined skills and digital know-how of users all affect and shape cultural practices.

With a keen attention given to the cultural practices of the Web 2.0, this seminar will try to define the great axis which condition both the offer and the use of cultural contents. With searchers and practitioners it will identify the emerging trends. Instead on studying the great sectors of culture (audiovisual, books, photography, music) one after the other, we have chosen to focus on cross-analysis through common themes.
This seminar is open to agents of the DEPS, and members from various agencies within the Ministry of Culture. A bilbiography will be followed and a synthesis will be published.
