The Mobile Lives Forum is a research institute supported by the SNCF. It examines mobility and the transition to more desirable and sustainable lifestyles. The exhibition proposes an original approach combining art, human and social sciences and documents from the archives.

The aim is to make the general public aware of the importance of mobility in contemporary societies and to open debates on the place we would like to give it. The first part of the exhibition looks back at the evolution of mobility since the beginning of the 20th century.

The second part of the exhibition highlights the fact that this mobility is in reality less free than it seems, between the monitoring of flows and inequalities in access to mobility.

The third part shows how central mobility is to contemporary lifestyles. The last part reflects on the place of mobility in tomorrow's society, starting from citizens' aspirations and utopias in order to understand the diversity of possible futures.
