Matérialité, communication et organisation : La vidéo-filature d'une idée

Abstract : In order to correct how we tend to blackbox materiality in organizational communication, we should not simply remind ourselves of the existence of a so called ‘material world’ and its effects of imbrication or entanglement with a so-called ‘social world’. On the contrary, we argue that we should take into account the material dimension of everything that enables a plurality of beings to exist, whether these beings are humans, texts, conversations, technologies or organizations. Through the videoshadowing of the birth, evolution and concretization of an idea during an annual event called Museomix, we show that the existence of any being pass through a plethora of mediators, intermediaries, medias, materializers that express, materialize and articulate with each other. Far from setting aside the question of materiality, the constitutive approach to communication we advocate invites us to identify all the effects of materialization by which beings with variable ontologies come to exist more or less in communication.
