Marion Bertin

Marion Bertin is a French PhD student in museum studies and anthropology, affiliated to the École du Louvre and the Université de la Rochelle (in the Centre de Recherches en Histoire Internationale et Atlantique, CRHIA).
Her works deal with the circulations of Oceanic objects in private and public collections from 1980 until today. It investigates the current so-called tribal art market, activities of private collecting, museums in the Pacific islands and all around the world, in order to question the different values an object can be assessed to. Exchange value and heritage value are my main interest, with the conflicts that could be created about an object.
