Abstract : The construction of an identity market is contingent on the convergence of highly disparate enterprises whose (sometimes implicit) aim is to mobilise around a number of schemas that emerged from the ‘identity kit’ that contributed to the nationalisation of populations from the 19th century onwards. Brittany can be considered as a field of observation for this polymorphous process because it has been the subject of an ideological reification since the 1970s. The aim of this article is to explore these discourses, which come from many different agents, and try to determine how, as a commonplace, identity constantly secretes identification. In addition, it will examine how the Conseil Régional de Bretagne (regional council of Brittany), through its cultural policy in particular, acts as the great orchestrator of this process under the guise of neutralising the issues.
