It is therefore structured with an inaugural chapter and eleven contributions from academic authors and professionals from the museum and library fields. They present and analyse initiatives that consist of working with audiences, reconsidering their points of view, taking care of them but also, and above all, questioning the reasons for working with audiences and questioning what we share with them, in particular as an audience ourselves. The notion of care (developed by Carole Gilligan 1982) is mobilized throughout the book. It refers to another consideration of politics as being exercised where the care of others is felt and where responsibility is taken for what one does for and with others. The audience is therefore the political condition that continually makes the ethics of care vivid at the heart of public service institutions.
