L’expérience des biens culturels en régime numérique

Abstract : This thesis focuses on the experience of cultural goods in a digital environment. Three issues are addressed here. First, the dematerialisation of media, which raises the question of the modalities of attachment to commodities. By seeking an "ideal of authenticity" and making their consumer experience unique, individuals regain the aura that has been lost with the digitisation of cultural goods. The approach to managing, ordering and classifying cultural goods has also changed, moving towards idiosyncratic patterns of classification. The second issue concerns the confrontation with the abundance of the cultural offer, which invites us to reflect upon the forms of exploration and selection of cultural goods, in particular the autonomous forms of discovery of online contents. The results show how digital technology allows a return to the "catch" mode and the use of serendipity. The final chapters deal with the topic of changes in consumption patterns, with first and foremost the forms of optimisation that digital technology allows by facilitating management between stock and flow. Finally, this work focuses on how individuals mobilise cultural property to put themselves in certain emotional and cognitive states, in particular through three regimes: escape, support and profitability. The research is based on two types of empirical material. On the one hand, 63 semi-directive interviews conducted at the respondents' homes, and diversified by age, gender, educational background, place of residence and PCS. On the other hand, a quantitative study by questionnaire structured by quota method. The data collected were subjected to multifactorial analysis (MCA) and classification (AHC).
