The Children Matter exhibition brings together artists who interrogate the place that contemporary society accords to the child, and, through this, the fundamental values of the adult world and its models of education and transmission. The exhibition lays out a non-exhaustive panorama of the visions of artists, philosophers, theorists and architects whose productions raise questions around emancipation.

A scenographic structure at the centre of the project acts as a forum, presenting documents, texts and archive material on childhood and the urban environment, and looking back at a number of historical experiments—utopias made real—across Europe and in Saint-Nazaire.
A programme of events completes this introduction to the rich and compelling history of the debate around education and alternative pedagogies.

Exhibition curators: Sophie Legrandjacques (chief curator), Amélie Evrard, Laureline Deloingce
