about

The Higher School of Art of Aix en Provence is widely recognized in the field of “Digital Arts”, which it has developed over a number of years, and through its « Locus Sonus » research laboratory, a partnership with the National Higher School of Art, Bourges.
On January 1st, 2011, the town of Aix en Provence created, in collaboration with the state and the Communauté du Pays d’Aix, a Public Institution for Cultural Cooperation (EPCC) to meet European requirements pertaining to management and awarding of Masters grade qualifications (the Bologna Process). Having received an A grade from the Agency for the Evaluation of Research in Higher Education (AERES), the school furnishes a teaching of high quality based on a strong pedagogical project, allowing it to position itself on a European level. It has a strong policy encouraging international exchanges and is already working on research projects in association with other institutional partners (universities, research laboratories, etc.).

third cycle

Locus sonus

Locus Sonus is a 3rd cycle of the research type, specializing in audio creation research.
It unfolds in the form of a one-year session validated by a certificate of 3rd cycle of research in sound art (BAC+6). Locus Sonus is a research cycle common to the Higher School of Art of Aix en Provence and the National Higher School of Art of Bourges. On the horizon of this art orientated 3rd cycle is the opening up of cycles of art research programmes with a view to establishing the specific nature of art education.
The human and technical resources of both schools are pooled within the framework of a convention which permits both the optimum circulation and development of the initiatives of Locus Sonus concerning the DNSEP curriculum, and the basis for a cycle of research in art. The three axes of research in the programme are currently determined on the basis of three vectors (approach, collective, network), mixing two fields of practice and research (Audio and Spaces, Audio and Networks).

E-Topie (E-Topia)

E-Topia is a programme of thinking, exchange, experimentation and creation, a platform which has been structured progressively since 2010 and we would like it to be operational at the beginning of the 2013/2014 school year. It is equally a space for collaboration between different partners with complementary activities which allows this platform to be deployed both in and outside the school in different forms. E-topia is spread over five principal programmes: FRONTIERS of the 21st Century, MENTION A/RT, OBS’IN, LOCUS SONUS, DOCTORAT DE CREATION.

Locus Sonus – audio in art

Locus Sonus is a post graduate research laboratory in art, shared between the Higher School of Art of Aix en Provence and the National Higher School of Art of Bourges. It provides structure for the 3rd cycle of the E-topia programme, in particular through the CNRS/MCC framework agreement which has permitted cooperation with the MMSH and the IMéRA since 2007 on a local and international level.
This innovative and experimental project in the field of audio art is run in collaboration by the teachers Jérôme Joy (ENSA Bourges) and Peter Sinclair (ESA Aix en Provence). Its objective is to experiment with innovative and trans-disciplinary aspects of forms and artistic sound practices with regard to issues of spaces and networks. It exists in part to fulfill the mission of creating a corpus of knowledge and a critical space concerning practices in sound art which are currently in a period of evolution. The principal implementation of the laboratory concerns the transport of sounds (and atmospheres) giving rise to the construction of approaches to streaming and flow (live transmission of sound via internet) and to sensorial and experimental environments, playing with the interweaving of places and distances and the resulting modifications of perception that they generate.
The project welcomes a small number of postmasters researcher-artists who constitute, along with the permanent members, the research team. The artists develop projects which fall somewhere between their own concerns and those of the laboratory. Locus Sonus regularly publishes texts in international science publications and proposes a cycle of symposiums, workshops and pedagogical activities for schools each year.

research programmes

Doctorate in creation

On the request of its rapporteur, Jean-Raymond Fanlohe, the ESAAix has documented the creation of a new “Practice and Study of Artistic and Literary Creation” doctorate, adopted by the scientific council of the AMU (the University of Aix Marseille). The modes of accompanying questions of methodology concerning this new path for the thesis in addition to questions of co-direction are ongoing.
The ENSP of Arles also participates.

Frontiers of the 21st Century

Frontiers of the 21st Century is a trans-disciplinary and exploratory research programme by Cédric Parizot and was launched in September of 2011 in the IMéRA. Associating the ESAAix from the beginning, it brings together researchers from the social and natural sciences, artists and professionals (customs officers, industrialists…) to rethink the mutations of systems of control on state borders and their impact on spaces and populations.
Operating a real decompartmentalization between different fields, it constitutes a major tool for structuring the e-topia arts/sciences/technologies platform for research and creation, allowing for the modeling of the question of research in the ESAAix in a multidisciplinary convergence. The overlapping of approaches allows for experimentation of proto-form models of art/science/technology research and the invention of new forms of production pertaining to questions of edition and exhibition.

Mention A/RT

The A/rt mention, attached to the DNSEP art option, will be proposed to 2nd cycle students at the beginning of the first semester of 2013/2014. In this way, a student’s journey within the art option which has characterized an aspect of our teaching for a number of years, will be made explicit. This path requires the structuring of this platform in which it participates as a space for training and experimentation, while not excluding the other studios in the school. Transversality is at the very heart of our pedagogical practices.

Obs’in

Founder of the Obs/in, the Observatory for creative practices in digital imagery, with the National Higher School of Photography and the IUT of Digital Imagery (AMU-Arles), the specific contribution of the school is linked to the interwoven relationship between art, science and technology that the school has developed over a number of years, and more specifically in the permanent Art Temps Réel studio established in 2010.

École supérieure d’art et de design d’Amiens

about

The Esad in Amiens proposes art teaching geared towards the image: graphic design, typography, digital design, animation (3d animation).
Its historic department proposes a five year course in graphic and visual communication. At the end of the first three years, students can specialize in digital design and, if they so wish, prepare the User eXperience Design Masters of the Compiégne University of Technology. At the end of the 5 year graphic design course students can join the post graduate “Typography and Language” course (+16 months).
The Esad opened a second training department for animated images (3D animation) in 2010. This training allows students to develop a collective approach necessary for the creation and production of film and, on an individual level, a unique and artistic approach geared towards a speciality in the domain of animation.

École supérieure des beaux-arts Tours Angers Le Mans | site Angers

about

The consolidation of the higher schools of fine arts of Tours, Angers and Le Mans into a Public Institution for Cultural Cooperation (EPCC) appears at first as the accomplishment of a pedagogical reform of which one of the objectives is to join European higher education, with the recognition of qualifications and in particular the Masters grade DNSEP qualification. The EPCC operates in a system of exchanges and of valorization of the teachings which facilitates the development of research departments.

The three sites, Tours, Angers and Le Mans, form a single establishment implanted in two regions, three departments and two cities which welcomes 550 students and brings together 105 teachers, artists and theoreticians. It is an associated member of PRES (The Center for Research and Higher Education) UNAM (The University of Nantes, Angers and Le Mans) and of the PRES Center – the University of Val de Loire.
The TALM Esba translates its openness and autonomy into trans-disciplinary practices and has developed, as a complementary mission, art education classes open to all.
The EPCC of the TALM Esba is an establishment for higher education awarding qualifications under the Minister for Culture and is part of the network of French Higher Art Schools.

Options:

– Art (featuring the mention Art Media): the art curriculum, geared towards the most current and innovative aspects of artistic creation, aims to introduce subjectivity and to implement a unique project by excluding all modeling. This option is defined essentially as a space for experimentation and dialogue. It has the principal vocation of training artists and researchers. The originality of the students can be uncovered through free and creative debates, proposed common experiments and a personalized monitoring of research, led by teachers who are themselves involved and active artists. The establishment awards a masters grade DNSEP in Art featuring the mention Art Media, following a 5 year curriculum.
– Design: the Space Design option develops a specific teaching with the goal of training designers with the ability to imagine and build “places” on a human scale, to intervene in the field of design at different spatial scales: from a confined space to the that of a landscape. These studies cover a period of 5 years and are completed by professional internships and lead to the obtaining of a masters grade DNSEP in Space Design which is recognized by the French Council of Interior Architects.
– Tapestry: this specific workshop situated on the Angers site provides technical training in weaving over a two or three year period and proposes experimentation in the domains of textiles and flexible objects. It is endorsed by the Municipal Weaver’s Diploma of the City of Angers. Those registered in this workshop do not have the status of students.

research units

The research platform of the TALM Esba – the Angers site

Seven research programmes exist and together make up a collaborative research platform whose structure relies both on a Research Unit dealing with independent programmes, and a functional coordination. Two types of programme are developed within this platform: Those considered as long term and which structure both research and third cycle and initial training, and those considered as short term, lasting between 18 and 24 months.
The research unit groups together long term programmes. Its operation is ensured by a research co-ordinator whose mission answers to different demands: accompanying the administrative staff and the monitoring of calls for project, valorization, articulation with the 3rd cycle and international development. Both physical and functional, this platform is adapted to research in an art school as the transfer of an art practice is different to that of knowledge and the form and temporality of these programmes can vary according to the needs and the options from which they emerge. Essentially the work emanating from the programmes and the research unit is addressed to different professional creative milieus including that of art, which is central. The modes of dissemination that are exhibition, display, demonstration, projection etc… are formally the consequence of the object of research underlying the conditions of social existence of an artistic practice and the issues to be shared.

The Scientific Council
The development of research is accompanied by a Scientific Council which is an advisory body to the establishment. It is composed of teachers who support research programmes, qualified participants, the coordinators and directors of sites. Its advisory and expert mission applies to initial courses, post graduate courses, 3rd cycles and their respective development, research and its strategic development. Its advice is submitted to the Pedagogical Council for Student Affairs (CPVE) and then debated. They can be validated by the Governing Board before being submitted to a Management Board if necessary.

In Translation

Director of research: Sébastien PLUOT
Associated Teachers:

TALM ESBA: Fabien Vallos, Jacqui Riva & Goeffrey Lowe.
Barnard College, University of Columbia : Peter Tracey Connor, Brian O’Keffee

This research programme has the goal of developing the deepening of theoretical knowledge of the phenomena and procedures of translation in the arts which engage a range of issues connected to linguistic theory, technology, psychoanalysis, theories of esthetics (the relationships between the arts and the rapport with the oeuvre, its interpretation, its understanding). Research takes into account the phenomena of translation in all of their dimensions: inter-linguistic (from one language to another), intra-linguistic (metaphor, metonym, allegory) and inter-semiotic (from one medium to another). Historical and theoretical research is envisaged in the permanent articulation between curatorial practices of production of oeuvres and publications. This programme has produced a series of exhibition projects, conferences and symposiums: Living Archives, Louie Louie and Art by Telephone Recalled.

In Translation has become an international research programme which is developed from a partnership between the Angers site of the TALM Esba, the San Francisco Art Institute the Cneai of Chatou and the « Barnard Translation Center » department of Barnard College, Columbia University, New York. Many other participants in the project intervene during seminars, exhibitions and publications: Mel Bochner, Artist ; Pierre Bal Blanc, Curator and critic ; Corinne Diserens, Art Historian and exhibition curator ; Silvia Kolbowski, Artist ; Nicolas Knight, Artist ; Ben Kinmont, Artist, Marcella Lista, Art Historian ; Pierre Leguillon, Artist ; Fabrice Reymond, Artist ; Julia Robinson, Art Historian, Professor at NYU ; Coline Sunier & Charles Mazé, Graphic Designers ; Avital Ronell, Professor of comparative literature at New York University and the European Graduate School, Switzerland ; Yann Sérandour, artist ; Raphael Zarka, artist.

En Traduction consists of three strands:
– Art by Telephone

Low, fictions and strategies of less in design and architecture

Reference teachers: Catherine Geel, David Enon, Pascal Riffaud and Denis Brillet (Block)
Partners : Sandberg Instituut, Amsterdam, Gili Eco Trust, S.A.R.A (Angers Regional Management Company)
.

At the end of two years the research proposes the first theoretical and visual responses to a group of terms corresponding to strategies of little (poverty, absence, void, lack, deprivation, austerity, simplicity, exhaustion, weak, diffused, fragile), to its fictions (a category of modern belief versus the postmodern critical tool) and their relationships with the visual writings of design, architecture and art. Two case studies (urban fabric and auto administrated territory) allow the envisaging of different aspects of the techniques employed today, as much on the level of territorial practice of expertise, visual production (domestic and in the environment) and the integration of systems (energetic, ecological, cultural and administrative) as on the meaning of these gestures at the heart of a cultural industry constantly in demand.

Publication: Low, fictions and strategies of little vol. 1 gathers study texts, interventions made by lecturers and the work of students (state of art), the acts of the “Design Poverty Fiction” festival organized at Hornu (Art Center – Belgium – March 2013) by the Design option (Arc BNC) Talm EPCC of Angers, the Dirty Art Department (Sandberg Instituut) and the Object Design department (Arts Déco – Paris), as well as a work of analysis and exhibition “Architectural Prospectives” done within the design department of Angers (November 2012 – October 2013). It is presented as a state of the art and elements used in research.

post-curricular or extracurricular activities

Public classes:

international cooperation

The TALM Esba expands its international scope each year by developing numerous partnerships with foreign art schools and establishments.
The establishment itself offers a number of possibilities for study abroad. The exchange programmes are part of the standard student curriculum and are mainly geared towards fourth year students. A period of study in a foreign school demands that the student present the outline of their personal project to other teachers, other pedagogical and cultural milieus. The three school sites have signed bilateral Erasmus conventions for the mobility of their students and teachers and also maintain privileged partnerships with institutions located outside of Europe.

about

Resulting from a joint decision by Angoulême and Poitiers to unite their resources and create a regional school, ÉESI is subsidised by the Ministry of Culture and Communication, the Regional Council of Nouvelle-Aquitaine, the two municipalities that host its facilities and the GrandAngoulême.
The school prepares students for the French equivalent of the BFA (the three-year Diplôme National d’Arts Plastiques) and MFA (the Diplôme National Supérieur d’Expression Plastique). The three disciplines offered by its Art option – comic art, digital art, emerging practices – put the emphasis on exploring the relations between thought, criticism, the production of visual works and research. In partnership with University of Poitiers, a master’s degree in comic art completes ÉESI’s graduate level offer. In addition, ÉESI opened in 2016 an international course in comic art, a one-year programme (School diploma) designed for young foreign comic artists.
The pedagogical project is implemented by a team of theoreticians and artist-teachers, accompanied by assistants, media librarians and technicians, all involved in various aspects of the contemporary arts. Perspectives are further broadened by workshops, seminars, lectures and visits by outside professionals and experts.
ÉESI is especially attentive to the relations that students develop with the art world(s). That is why students are encouraged to travel and to work with established artists or in cultural institutions, and to participate in local and international events and festivals. Every day, ÉESI’s national and international partnerships help open up new perspectives, new ways of bringing together theory and practice, research and art, and finding and transgressing new frontiers.
By encouraging experiment and awareness of new developments in all the arts (music, cinema, literature, the performing arts, etc.), as well as the dialogue with other fields of knowledge (science, cultural studies, human sciences), the different components of the ÉESI teaching programme, from the first degree to the postgradute program on Document and Contemporary Art and, since 2016, the PhD “Practice and theory of artistic and literary creation in comic art” offer students and budding artists an environment and resources to learn and produce.

Diplôme Supérieur de Recherche en Art (DSRA) – Document and contemporary art

Founded in 2010 at the initiative of the European School of Visual Arts, the post-graduate program, Document & contemporary art, became a degree-granting research program in 2014, awarding a PhD-level DSRA (Diplôme Supérieur de Recherche en Art), in partnership with the École nationale supérieure d’art de Bourges. This experimental research program places equal emphasis on collective and individual research agendas.
The program is open to young art or film practitioners, curators and theorists seeking to prolong their studies through a three-year, doctoral-level program, irrespective of media or technique. Participants are expected to follow the program’s collective activities and to undertake individual research integrating artistic production and theoretical reflexion. Individual research projects must be validated by a committee made up of the academic advisory team and an external assessor at the end of the first year. Successful completion of the three-year program enables participants to obtain a PhD-level Degree in artistic research (DSRA).
The program is by nature nomadic, displacement being a conscious methodological choice. Its activities are condensed into once-monthly meetings of one week, held in different cities (Paris, Buenos Aires, Bourges, Poitiers, Angoulême, Belgrade…). For these meetings, the program functions as a seminar, inviting artists, theorists, curators, activists, etc. Participants are required to attend the collective research seminars and to engage in a regular writing practice in the form of reports and correspondence. An annual publication provides an account of the program’s activities by bringing together writing and other work from the participating artists and invited guests.
The program recruits internationally. Principal working languages are English, French and Spanish.

Doctorat de création Expression artistique et littéraire spécialité bande dessinée

Practice-based PhD Artistic and literary expression in comic art

Resulting from a partnership between the University of Poitiers and the European School of Visual Arts, the practice-based PhD Artistic and literary expression in comic art is open to all candidates with a Master’s degree / DNSEP from higher education institutions, whose subject is based both on a strong artistic practice in the field of comic art, narrative drawing (or any experimental form in this field) and theoretical research. The thesis, prepared at the University of Poitiers and the ÉESI (based on the existing partnership at the Master’s in comic art level), is subject to the methodological and quantitative requirements of a doctorate but supplemented by elements that attest to an artistic practice-based research.

post-curricular or extracurricular activities

Postgraduate research-creation residencies

In the context of the professionalisation of students, the ÉESI wished to open art residencies abroad to the graduates of June 2018.The implementation of a research-creation scholarship programme within the ÉESI is the result of a common finding in the major French art schools, namely the difficulty that most young artists have to develop their creative work, to show their work to the public and more broadly to get in contact with art professionals. For this first edition, three destinations have been selected thus giving the opportunity to three selected graduates, one by destination, to experience a first art residency abroad for a duration of 3 months in Fall 2018. The residencies were chosen for the quality of their activities and their location in line with the artistic orientations of the ÉESI:

La Cúpula, multidisciplinary art center in Mérida, Mexico, in partnership with the Yucatán School of Fine Arts (ESAY)
InterAccess, non-profit gallery, educationalfacility, production studio, and festival dedicated to emerging practices in art and technology located in Toronto, Canada
Can Serrat, artistic residency in El Bruc, Catalonia, which brings togetheran international community of visual artists, writers and musicians who share,mix, coexist and create in a common space.

international cooperation

International openness is one of the priorities of the school strategy. Mobility is a flagship project which is developed in the long term and tends to structure pedagogy more and more.

This international openness, based on the evaluation of existing partnerships as well as on the prospection of new exchange partners, makes it possible to send students, teachers and non-teaching staff abroad and, conversely, to welcome students and art professionals within the school.

“Scenes of excellence” are favored for all these exchanges. Indeed, according to each practice taught at the school, there are reference places most often located in cities with a particularly dynamic artistic scene.

As part of their Master’s programme, all fourth-year students are going abroad for a semester. Their destination is chosen based on the criteria stated above and according to their personal projects.

The school keeps abreast of the state of creation on the different continents, currently with a predominance of Europe, North America and Asia.

New partnerships are being established with structures located in South America (Argentina, Mexico, etc.) and on the African continent (Senegal in particular).

Annecy

École supérieure d’art de l’agglomération d’Annecy

about

The Higher School of Art of greater Annecy (ESAAA) is part of the national network of higher art schools and is unique in this group/context for its work on spaces, landscape and the organization of territory, and also for its radical position concerning the experimental dimension of art: experimentation, this common foundation of creation since Modernity, so commonplace that at times it seems empty of substance, is strongly asserted by the ESAAA and is the cornerstone of its activity.
The curricula proposed by the ESAAA incorporate this dialectic necessity of distance/ing and proximity, and even though there is something of an immersion in the activity of the workshop, they also propose a number of projects which take place outside of the walls, engaged with the issues of our time, its urban nature, its hi and lo fidelity technologies, its global fluctuations.. and commit themselves to participating through these numerous points of contact. The ESAAA is designed at each and every level of its activity to be a platform for work from which it is possible to deploy communal and shared propositions.
A school embedded in an exceptional site, Les Marquisats, an architectural site that has been designated “20th Century Heritage” site, on the shores of lake Annecy, operating as both a place of residence and as a site for production.

research units

The ESAAA research unit

Since 2006, the ESAAA has supported the work of a team of artists, philosophers, designers, architects and historians who work together within its Research Unit. This collaborative research activity with its variable geometry, which relies on a number of different national and international networks, has allowed the following actions to be carried out:

– From 2006 to 2012 work on experimentation and the archive, and in turn on performance and the “format” with the LAAC, first under Laurent Jeanpierre and Elie During, then under Thierry Mouillé and David Zerbib, resulting in Experimenta (in Annecy in 2008), and Format X (at the 104 in Paris in 2010), publishing In Actu, de l’experimental dans l’art, in 2009 with the Presses du réel, and, with the same editor, In Octavo, des formats de l’art (to be published).
– From 2009 to 2011: a programme led by Nicolas Thély worked on the changes in sensitivity in the age of the Web 2.0: this “lo fidelity research path” resulted in study days in Grenoble, Valance and Quimper, and allowed the organization of different exhibitions (such as “Best Practices” in Stockholm in 2011) concluding with the publication of Search Terms, Basse def by B42 éditions.
– From 2010 to 2011: a third axis of research led by Stéphane Sauzedde developed a sensitive and critical apparatus starting with ahistorical and localized forms of art: “la pensée sauvage” (wild thought). This research led to the AUTRES exhibition and catalogue in the Musée-Château of Annecy (June 2012).

Finally, since 2011, the ESAA has done work on “Los Angeles: the margins at the center”, dealing with amateur practices and cinema (Pratiques domestiques) and on intuition (Le laboratoire des intuitions). (Cf. Ongoing research programme).

École nationale supérieure de la photographie

about

L’École Nationale Supérieure de la Photographie est la seule école nationale supérieure d’art en France spécifiquement dédiée au médium photographique. Organisée autour d’ateliers techniques dont les équipements sont constamment renouvelés et remis à niveau, structurée par une solide équipe d’artistes enseignants, de chercheurs et de chefs d’ateliers, la pédagogie fait, tout au long de l’année, appel à un grand nombre d’intervenants (photographes, vidéastes, artistes plasticiens, historiens de l’art et de la photographie, critiques, écrivains, théoriciens…).
Les travaux des étudiants et anciens étudiants font l’objet d’expositions régulières, en France et à l’étranger, et beaucoup figurent dans des collections publiques et privées nationales et internationales, ainsi que dans les publications de l’École qui sont aussi des outils de recherche, en particulier la revue Inframince et la collection Anticaméra.
La formation, ouverte sur un vaste réseau de relations internationales, prépare les étudiants à une insertion professionnelle dans les contextes les plus divers : les milieux artistiques, le journalisme et les médias, l’enseignement ou la recherche, et la plupart des métiers demandant des compétences en matière d’images numériques, fixes ou animées (édition, photothèques, conservation, milieux médicaux et scientifiques…). La pluridisciplinarité est donc valorisée, associant les aspects pratiques, techniques et théoriques.

about

Three axes of development characterize the ISBA:
1. Research, being specific to our artistic and graphic practices, is not necessarily less underpinned by university laboratories, with whom we have created three PRS units – Structuring Research Departments, as long as they engage all of the pedagogy present in the school: print, the social contract, and the body of the artist.
2. International co-operation: more than an activity, the international represents a true dimension of development for the ISBA. To encourage this, a number of tools are available to us: Erasmus student exchanges and also exchanges with non European schools, foreign teachers and participants as part of the teaching staff, an international artist’s residency, study trips and an intensive teaching of english.
3. The cultural fabric which allows students to be placed into a professional situation of artist and author by producing and showing their work. In a similar fashion, various participants are invited and exhibitions organized each year. Among the most recent: Jean Dupuy, Thomas Hirschhorn, Perr Hutner, Phil Niblock, Kendel Geers, Peter Knapp, Harmen Liemburg.

Finally, two other dimensions also characterize our establishment:
– A constant practice of evaluation
– The monitoring of entry into professional life

Social Contract

The Besançon/Franche-Comté Higher Institute of Fine Arts has chosen to concentrate its research on three main axes : The Body of the artist, Social Contract and Print. Each one of these axes has its initial grounding in the pedagogical initiatives of the artist teachers and theoreticians of the ISBA in close collaboration with a number of research laboratories within French and foreign universities, in addition to collaborations with other art schools and various institutions. This thinking is the subject of dialogues initiated and led during workshops for creation and research, conferences and other workshops in addition to seminars, study days, publications and exhibitions.

Social Contract
An intentional reference to Rousseau, the Social Contract research programme questions the engagement of the artist, and of the artist as citizen. It finds its roots in the economic, social and cultural history of the town of Besançon. The social utopia, fruit of the thinking of Charles Fourier and Pierre-Joseph Proudhon, both born in Besançon, is the well that this story has continued to draw from, with the memory of its working class being particularly impacted. From the strikes in the Rhodicéta factory in 1967 to the Lip affair in 1973 and the experiments in self-management of the company which followed, emancipation and self representation were some the true issues from which the Medvedkine was born. This history, with its international appeal encourages us today to question the place of the artist in society, his/her reception and his/her positions and attitudes faced with today’s world, his/her relationship with work and the new forms which can result from it.
The Social Contract section does its research in dialogue with different partners, the CIMEOS laboratory of the University of Bourgogne, that of Art&Flux of the University of Paris 1 – Panthéon-Sorbonne, the La Cambre Higher School of Visual Art in Brussels (Belgium), the National Institute of Fine Arts of Tétouan, the Tangiers Cinematheque (Morocco) and the Saline Royal among others.

Scientific managers:
Stéphanie Jamet-Chavigny (Doctor, Professor of history and art theory at the ISBA, collaborating member of the André Chastel Center, Paris-IV-Sorbonne University), Matthieu Laurette (Artist, Art/Multimedia teacher at the ISBA), Gilles Picouet (Artist, Volume teacher at the ISBA), Philippe Terrier-Hermann (Artist teacher at the ISBA and at the ENSAV of La Cambre).

Partnerships:
The La Cambre Higher School of Visual Arts in Brussels, the Art&Flux laboratory in the CERAP laboratory, University of Paris 1 – Panthéon-Sorbonne, the Franche-Comté Frac, the Tétouan National Institute for Fine Arts (Morocco), the La Cambre Higher School of Visual Art in Brussels (Belgium), the CIMEOS laboratory in semiology in the University of Bourgogne, Saline Royal of Arc-et-Senans.

The body of the Artist

The Besançon/Franche-Comté Higher Institute of Fine Arts has chosen to concentrate its research on three main axes : The Body of the artist, Social Contract and Print. Each one of these axes has its initial grounding in the pedagogical initiatives of the artist teachers and theoreticians of the ISBA in close collaboration with a number of research laboratories within French and foreign universities, in addition to collaborations with other art schools and various institutions. This thinking is the subject of dialogues initiated and led during workshops for creation and research, conferences and other workshops in addition to seminars, study days, publications and exhibitions.

The Body of the Artist
The Performance & Action Art field of experimentation has existed since 2009 and is made up of a research programme entitled Le Corps de l’artiste (The Body of the artist). This system is part of an international network of institutions – whose main partners are the Fine Arts faculty of the Valencia Polytechnic University, the faculty of Fine Arts of Athens – and is part of the working dynamic of a group of artists and researchers from a number of countries. The physical presence of the artist and his/her corporal engagement in the creation, is the subject of our questions, ones that focus on the essential issues in the fields of performance, action art, interaction with poetic zones and newer critical systems; performance art comes from the corporalized practices of the 1960s, inherited from the historical Avant gardes. Through the study of the implementation of exploratory and experimental propositions the idea is to build innovative research paths within the The Body of the Artist section, within a new epistemology that establishes contemporary research in the arts and the sciences.

Biarritz

École supérieure d’art des Rocailles

about

The ESA of the Rocailles and the other actors of the Plateau image (Images Platform) of Biarritz have become a laboratory of experimentation of a new policy with regards to cultural industries so as to invent protocols, as yet unknown, for new itineraries through culture. Also, because of its geographical location, the question of sustainable development is a major preoccupation of the Côte Basque-Adour conglomeration. The Cité du Surf and the Océan in Biarritz, the Izadia ecology park of Anglet and the Ansot protected zone are all visible signs of this. The pedagogical project of the school is particularly attached to engaging in thinking on these territories. Thus, original possibilities for expression remain to be invented for this new cultural ecosystem and it is urgent for artists to be present within it.

Rosa B

Conceived and co-produced by the CPAC museum of contemporary art of Bordeaux and the EBABX, the biannual web magazine Rosa B is a space dedicated to research and thought which deals with? and questions, different current issues of artistic creation. In each issue, this magazine takes into account the specific nature of the mediums of digital information. It allows multidisciplinarity, in its form and content, by mixing theoretical texts and contributions with dynamic visual and sonic propositions. Each number of Rosa B has a defined theme, decided and debated by the editorial committee.

Rosa B 5: Environment and Design, directed by Jeanne Quéheillard and Peio Aguirre, this issues proposes the reintroduction of the question of environment and design: it adopts the form of an archive, as an updating of historical documents in light of ongoing debates on the current fabrication of our environment. Web designer: Didier Lechenne

Rosa B 4: Event horizon, is conceived of as a black bubble. An internet site with content that is both ephemeral and unpredictable, this fourth issue of the magazine Rosa B envisages science-fiction as a crossing multiple practices. Guest editor for this issue: Yoann Gourmel.

Rosa B 3: Standard format, directed by Patricia Falguières, Michel Aphesbero and Pierre Ponant, proposes thinking on graphic design, typography, the standards and uses, by investigating the consequences of digital innovation. See the issue.

Rosa B 2: Pop. Oblique strategies, directed by Yann Chateigné Tytelman, explores a fetishistic, wide and complex notion of “pop”. See the issue.

Rosa B 1: Edit, directed by Thomas Boutoux, is consecrated to the publication: logical and necessary starting point for the implementation of any new publishing project in a universe that could be considered as already saturated with publications.

activities and events

Exhibitions, lectures, meetings with participating artists, research conferences, workshops, large workshop (collective productions with young artists), seminars, publishing.

post-curricular or extracurricular activities

The school is open to adults, in the form of non-degree students, who wish to improve their artistic, theoretical and practical knowledge, without the objective of a certification/ qualification. The programme proposed within as a free time activity, takes place over four years. It aims to present a general view of contemporary visual practices completed by a historical approach. The classes are organized during the day and in the evening, from October to June. The objective is to work with all of the professors of the teaching system in place with a rhythm of three classes per week. Each non-degree student participates in an admission interview and an assessment at the end of each year. Registration is possible from the open day for non-degree students (June) onwards.

international cooperation

The school encourages, within the framework of the curriculum, study trips, internships and stays abroad.
International internships encourage familiarity with profession milieus and their modes of production, in addition to the acquisition of specific know-how. Grants covering one semester are available to fourth year students, allowing them to participate in international internships or study in partner art schools.
For a number of years and on an international level, the EBABX has made a vast and ambitious cultural investment. Beyond classic student exchanges which follow a specific teaching programme offered by partner schools (by way of the Crepuq and Erasmus programmes), the school is particularly interested in developing overlapping experiences with certain foreign partner schools (Politecnico, Milan – the Marchons Marchons workshop, 2012 and VINI VINDI VINCI, 2013, the Academy of Cracow, California Institute of the Arts, EINA Barcelona, etc.).

Bourges

École nationale supérieure d’art de Bourges

about

Located in a 17th century building, the National Higher School of Art, Bourges, finds itself at the historical heart of the city. With almost 7000m2 available to it, the school offers vast work spaces to students and has numerous technical workshops fitted with a high standard of equipment that is constantly renewed and updated.

The Box is one of the main tools for teaching in the school. Each year it produces more than ten exhibitions of French and foreign artists. Since 1991, the Bourges ENSA works with young, resident artists and entrusts a part of its programme to young curators, with the financial support of the regional direction for cultural affairs and the regional council of the Centre. The goal of these residencies is to allow young French and foreign artists to do a personal project in connection with the school, its teachers, its students and other external partners. The students also benefit from the presence of these professionals and artists for the implementation of exhibitions and workshops.

post-graduate

Laborintus – Post graduate course in sound practices

Since 2000, the ENSA of Bourges has introduced a workshop dedicated to sound practices which continues to evolve thanks to a reinforcing of the teaching staff, equipment and an informal but strong relationship between the school and the electro acoustic music class of the music conservatory of the town of Bourges.
The innovative nature of this project results in an overlapping of electronic music practices and sound practices. The idea is to create passages between electronic music and the inventive nature of sound practice, to create encounters between students coming from different backgrounds, and to avail of this twin approach so as to favor creation. The creation of the post graduate course arrives as a logical follow up to this accumulation of skills and practices which induce the development of research blending electronic musical practices and sound practices.
The objectives of the post graduate programme are to:
– deepen the artist’s and/or musician’s technical and artistic training with a multidisciplinary training;
– place creation at the heart of the overlap of musical and sound practices;
– engage transversal research around sound and contemporary forms;
– ensure the dissemination of the year’s creation in the context of a public demonstration.

ongoing training

CÉPIA Center for Studies

This training is inscribed within the general policy of the Minister of Culture and Communication, a policy which aims to favor the widest possible access to artistic and cultural practices. Its objective is to provide complementary training to visual artists engaged in a professional activity. This training is founded on the acquisition of didactical skills and capacity for thought, applied to contemporary creation. It is not teaching in the classical sense of the term (an objectified transmission of a general skill-set) but rather prepares students to intervene on the basis of a unique practical experience, with diverse audiences: school and extracurricular contexts, cultural services, associative spaces, hospital and prison settings.
This training is based on a twin approach: theoretical and methodology teaching and an implementation of an intervention submitted to regular analysis all throughout the training period.

about

A unique and innovative pedagogical approach

Highly attentive to contemporary worlds since its origin, and being a laboratory open to the creation of our time, the school adapts and anticipates. It synchronizes its teaching with the developments in the professional environment in which its students will take part. It focusses its attention on the question of art with the goal of excellence and is constantly modifying its curriculum. The driving force behind these transformations comes from a dynamic teaching staff, the ambition of its national and international collaborations, and the entrepreneurial commitment of the students.
Today the ENSAPC is one of the rare higher schools of art to have taken the principle of à la carte teaching (or the individualized path) to such lengths. This allows students to freely choose among the numerous course options, ARC (Workshops for research and creation) and studios proposed by the school’s professors and guest professionals. Thanks to this system, the student designs his own path. Responsible and independent he/she builds his/her own education and chooses the singular variations that are to be applied to it. Each student has a correspondingly unique trajectory.

With the goal of training high level creators and professionals, the school has trained a large number of artists who have built unique trajectories in the domains of visual arts, cinema, design and literature. Absalon, Erwan Bouroullec, Latifa Echakhch, Loris Gréaud, Michel Hazanavicius, Jean-Charles Hue, Valérie Mrejen, Nicolas Moulin, Jean-Michel Othoniel, Boris Achour and Sylvain Rousseau and Erik Samakh, are a few examples of this.
Research is structured and developed, notably by the opening in 2013 of 7 lines of research covering a wide spectrum of accessible themes beginning in fourth year. Under the title “lines of research” thematic programmes of work are gathered. These programmes mobilize partners belonging to the domain of research in an institutional fashion. Conceived of to be developed over a period of two to three years, lines of research for the vast majority, were recognized by their peers through specific financing such as that coming form Labex (Laboratories of excellence) or the commission for research of the Minister of Culture. Work done by students and researchers is subject to restitution in multiple forms (seminars, publishing of acts, exhibitions, productions…). Graduate students are also involved along with doctoral students of the associated scientific partners.

gallery

ENSAPC Ygrec—20 rue Louise Weiss 75013 Paris

The Ygrec is an exhibition space that opened in March of 2012, renewing the project of La Vitrine, established ten years previously by the ENSAPC. Ygrec is a space for research and interaction between Cergy and Paris, between a pedagogical and professional activity. Neither gallery nor art center the Ygrec positions itself as a possible third way dedicated to questioning and reinventing art practice. A permanent structure for the production and distribution of contemporary art, Ygrec accompanies emerging creation and develops audacious artistic projects. It is as much a place that exhibits productions, as a collective work space that makes them happen. It adapts and transforms according to the projects that it hosts: exhibition, performance, concert, projection, launching of publications…
A toolbox for the teachers and students participating in and initiating its activities, YGREC wishes to be a space for meetings and exchanges. The link between an artistic and pedagogical practice where one is re-imagined by the other.

about

e|m|a|fructidor has designed a system for education and training for all ages, for a permanent training, in phase with technological developments and their economic consequences. e|m|a|fructidor, as an art school developing a practice and thinking founded on the arts, techniques and medias of sound and image, is recognized by the professional milieu. Its skills stand out from those that characterize current structures for training in information and communication, structures with which e|m|a| maintains complementary relationships.
In a completely original fashion, the curriculum is based on an approach that resolutely maintains three dimensions: Artistic—Technical-Scientific – Economic. The teachings in the d’e|m|a|fructidor covers the spectrum of Fine Arts and Digital Technologies in an open and exigent context, developing a curriculum which encourages students to acquire a range of skills and mobility by exploring an increased palette of tools for expression.
The trans-disciplinary environment of the e|m|a| allows for the training of multi-skilled and independent creators, capable of working in industry or research. Professional fields currently available to graduates: contemporary art (creation and mediation), design, digital media, cinema, sound, fashion, photography, video games, architecture, teaching, research, dance, theater and urban set design, culinary design, etc…
e|m|a|fructidor is part of the national and international network of art and university establishments and practices the newer European Credit Transfer System and qualifications (Certificate Master Doctorate), allowing students to obtain a Master’s level qualification and to continue their studies on an equivalent level.

ésam Caen/Cherbourg preparatory class

In October of 2012/2013, ésam Caen/Cherbourg opened a public preparatory class with the intention of preparing students for entrance competitions to French Higher Art Schools, the first of its kind in the Northwest of France. This preparatory class has a central aim: to create the conditions for successful entry to French Higher Schools of Art. Teaching is ensured by visual artists and theoreticians from the school. It is a pedagogical space which welcomes students aged between 17 and 25, who have passed their baccalauréat and functions in quite intensive conditions. The preparatory class of ésam Caen/Cherbourg allows the students to confirm their choice, to comprehend the issues around education in a school of art and gain access to higher education through different forms of experimentation, thinking and confrontation. The students engaged in the curriculum commit to passing four entrance exams to optimize their chances of success.

research units

The Art and Water laboratory

The Art and Water laboratory associates skills in scientific research and skills in art research for the implementation of projects which touch upon the numerous relationships that exist between art and water. Located in a phase of structure and growth, the laboratory is developed around a collective project that affirms the identity of an original intellectual production, at the intersection of knowledge and creation. The work is forcibly interdisciplinary, and is in constant contact with the contemporary issues of creation, in direct connection with the socioeconomic and cultural realities of art, in the immediate environment of the oeuvres and the process of conception.
The investigations are organized on the basis of three strategic orientations where each one has the vocation of hosting a number of research projects. The first axis of research concerns the relationships between art and water when they enter into resonance with territory and landscapes. The second research is in the intellectual issues of creation linked to water as matter and material. The third axis of research materializes on the terrain of the relationships that art and water have with movement and mobility. Of differing scales, structures and natures, the projects of the Laboratory of art and water take place within this tripartite organization. The Musée éclaté de la presqu’île of Caen project is located on the “Territory/Landscapes” axis.

Clermont-Ferrand

Ecole supérieure d’art de Clermont Métropole

about

Favouring a non-specialized approach to training in the visual arts within its art department, the École Supérieure d’Art de Clermont Métropole (ESACM) (Clermont Ferrand School of Fine Arts) provides demanding and open education (drawing, painting, printing, sculpture, installations, photography, video, cinema, digital practices, contemporary art, art history, philosophy, literature etc.), enabling all students to develop, nourish and broaden a personalized method which is committed to contemporary design.

The school is certified by the French Ministry for Culture and Communication, which enables it to award two state-certified art degrees: the “National Diploma in Art” (Diplôme National d’Art – DNA) which is equivalent to a bachelor’s degree, and the “National Diploma in Plastic Arts” (Diplôme National Supérieur d’Expression Plastique – DNSEP) which is equivalent to a master’s degree, and which are awarded after 3 and 5 years respectively. While the school’s aim is to train artists, it also provides training for various occupations involving art and culture, and enables everyone to follow their own professional path. The master’s degree enables students to continue on to other master’s degrees, which include professional ones, to doctoral level art school degrees and university doctorates.

The ESACM has also set up two research areas: “Landscape Spaces” (les espaces des paysages) and “Workplace Worlds” (les mondes du travail). These two areas generate research programmes which, through invitations, conferences, seminars, travel, workshops, publications, shows and exhibitions etc., implement art research through art. Every year, Master’s students join research teams. These are assisted by the Research Cooperative, which brings together experienced resident researchers and student researchers. The doctorate enables student researchers to continue their research work over 3 years.

School Cooperative / 3rd cycle

The Research Cooperative is the platform from which the ESACM’s research activities are organised. Every year it welcomes resident researchers selected by invitation to apply, who are looking to explore or deepen an aspect of their own research. It also hosts the 3rd cycle for student researchers, who are also selected by invitation to apply. By promoting exchanges between invited researchers, teachers and students, the Cooperative plays a part in nourishing the ESACM’s research areas and programmes, in close collaboration with research teams.

preparatory schools

Preparatory lessons and training

To prepare for entrance exams for the Écoles Supérieures d’Art and for compiling their own project dossier, the ESACM invites pupils to attend preparatory lessons during the school year (Saturday afternoons from October to May) or intensive training (2 dates announced in the spring).
Information and registration form available at www.esacm.fr

research programmes

Research programs

Researchers can either join existing programs and projects in the Coopérative de recherche, or initiate new areas of research. A research program is a group made up of teachers, researchers and students, gathered around a common theme or field. Appropriating critical methodologies sourced from sciences, humanities, cinema, literature, and artistic practice, we make consistent attempts to question our references and reshape our forms of knowledge. By exploring various milieus such as the Mediterranean and Central Europe, Sub-Saharan Africa, or the American Midwest, the research, carried out through the programs of the Coopérative de recherche, address matters of migration and exile, identities labelling, cultural interaction, and economic or political means of resistance.

Ongoing programs in 2020-2021 :

– “Leviathan”
Created in 2016 by Cédric Loire, art historian and teacher at ÉSACM, and Sarah Ritter, artist, the “Leviathan” group also includes the artists Antoine Barrot, Kostia Jopeck and Charlie Jeffery, and has involved MA students between 2016 to 2018.
The research is based on shared readings of Herman Melville’s novel, Moby-Dick, or the Whale (1851), related to contemporary milieus — mainly the city of Detroit, which the group has visited several times. Leviathan deals with violence and capitalism, with the forms of resistance that oppose them, and with the possibilities of narrating the world we live in. Study days and seminars will be held in the coming year (2020-2021) while work continues of the finalisation of an editorial project drawing together the research of the last few years.

– “Des Exils”
The research group is led by Michèle Martel, art historian and Jan Kopp, artist, both teachers at ÉSACM, the artists and researchers Fabrice Gallis, Mélis Tezkan, Kostia Jopeck, Jérôme de Vienne, and master students. It has its origins in a seminar organized in 2017 about what forced or voluntary displacements do to forms.
The working group creates situations of exchange based on collective readings, interviews with interlocutors from the art world, by organizing readings and performances in the school and by repeating gestures and actions produced by others.

– “Figures de transition”
Based on the renewed interest in contemporary African art, from Clermont-Ferrand and in connection with Cotonou and Ouagadougou, “Figures of Transition” questions exhibitions and historical reverberations that shape the way we look at art and its figures. Working in Clermont-Ferrand and linked to art protagonists in Cotonou and Ougadougou, this research group is led by the artist Jacques Malgorn, critique and ÉSACM’s philosophy professor J. Emil Sennewald, artists Camille Varenne and Enrico Floriddia. It has been created in close cooperation with film curator and independent critique Clémentine Dramani Issifou and scenographer Dao Sada and develops its projects through frequent invitations of afro-european art-activists. This group is the outcome of a three-day long symposium, which took place in the ÉSACM under the title “surexpositions” in 2018. Today, the main activity of “Figures de transition” is the edition of the sequential publication “Epokä”. We are open to welcome new researches willing to widen, to shift, to question our intentions and objectives.


Past research programs :
“Collages en France” (2012-2013) ; “Robinson/Vendredi – Exploring Robinson” (2013-2017) ; “Le parti pris de l’expérience ; Marfa” (2012-2014) ; “L’intercalaire” (2014-2016) ; “Un film infini (le travail)” (2014 – 2020).

It is also partner to higher education establishments in Canada (Montreal), USA (Norman) and Peru (Lima).
In the context of linguistic training, the school prepares students for a Degree in Language skills (DCL). Indexed on the grid of the Common European Reference Framework for languages, it displays a level of mastery of the english language. The idea is to favor student mobility, already strongly encouraged by conventions with foreign establishments, and to allow for a better integration into professional life.
Projects of an international dimension are also done in the context of pedagogy and research in the ESACM (research programmes at Marfa – USA – and in Benin, Landscape ARC in Benin and Istanbul, etc.).

gallery

Dijon

Ecole nationale supérieure d’art de Dijon

about

The National Higher School of Art of Dijon is the oldest of the seven national schools found in the region. Beginning as the drawing workshop that the painter François Devosge founded in 1765, it developed both its ties to local communities and its national and international reputation. Situated in part in the 18th century Abbot’s palace, at the very heart of Dijon and by train, one and a half hours from Paris, the school enjoys a privileged geographical situation reinforced by the entry into service of the eastern section of the high speed Rhine-Rhône rail network.
Classes in art history, esthetics and philosophy are part of the programme throughout one’s studies. They are completed by lectures, research and creative workshops, study trips, internships which favor differing approaches to creation. At the same time, students are trained in the production techniques necessary for contemporary expression, from the more traditional (film photography, drawing, painting, screen-printing, sculpture and volume), associating the full range of materials (earth, wood, metal, resin, plastics) including newer technologies (computers, infography and multimedia, sound, digital technologies, network practices).

Dunkerque

Ecole supérieure d’art du Nord-Pas de Calais Dunkerque-Tourcoing | Dunkerque

about

The ésa hosts 250 students spread over two sites, favoring a diversified and original pedagogical offer within its art option. Forty artist-teachers, authors, graphic designers, editors, critics, philosophers, theoreticians, art historians and researchers are engaged in a dynamic of teaching art through art.
In Tourcoing, the mention “body and contexts: visual arts and stage arts” is interested in the links between visual and performance arts both in their disciplinary collaborations and in their fusion within innovative artistic propositions. This mention is built with the Center for the Study of Contemporary Art, a research laboratory of the University of Lille 3 and Latitudes Contemporaines, a professional structure for distribution and creation.
In Dunkirk, the mention “exhibition issues” puts the site into contact with the ensemble of partners and territorial projects (Museums – LAAC, Museum of Fine Arts, FRAC, Performance and exhibition spaces (Studio 43, Jazz-Club, Bateau-feu, 4 écluses), the University of the Littoral Côte d’Opale, the municipal Conservatory, companies, the urban community, maisons de quartier, cursive projects, structuring events, etc.) tending to guide the student towards work linked to the notion of projection of the object, the body or speech towards contexts where it is completely engaged, outside of its place of production, as form.

Épinal

Ecole supérieure d’art de Lorraine, Epinal-Metz | Épinal

about

The Epinal school has a history which has always been situated in the field of the narrative image, graphic design and publishing.
Experimental and creative practices thrive in the specific spaces which are at the same time affirmed and diversified as time goes on. Traditional or “populaire” imagery in effect deals with extremely diverse themes through religion, politics, fiction and pedagogy. Images within fiction and pedagogy show themselves to be inventive and interesting on many points: it creates psychologically significant characters in the social framework, it develops new systems of narration, it uses original formatting (images in volume), it calls upon industrial print techniques, talented creators, it makes knowledge accessible, finally it uncovers a new audience, that of youth.
Today the school uses all of the resources of the contemporary arts with the extraordinary diversity of their modes of expression to perpetuate this tradition.

Campus Caraïbéen des Arts, Fort de France, Martinique

about

The Caribbean Arts Campus (CCA) is a regional school dedicated to higher education, research and multidisciplinary professionalization in the Arts. The structure was created December 1st, 2011 by the Martinique Region, and originated in the will to implement a reform of art education for Martinique in its Caribbean context. On a wider level the idea is to promote culture and art by participating in the promotion and professionalization of our artistic potential.
The school is currently comprised of 5 departments, the 4 most recent were created in 2012: Visual Arts (Ex Martinique Regional Institute for Visual Arts), Living Arts, Art Trades, Cinema and Research.

It awards higher national degrees in Visual Arts (DNAP, DNAT, DNSEP) giving students the possibility to benefit from a truly multidisciplinary training up to and including a Master level qualification.
The establishment equally wanted to encourage the training of trainers through a partnership between the department of Living Arts and the Center for training of Dance and Music Teachers (CEFEDEM) of Normandy. Thanks to this agreement, our Martiniquean students can pursue training for the obtention of a State Degree (DE) as music teacher. In line with this policy, from September 2013 the Cinema Department has offered the possibility to our students to prepare for a Professional qualification in “Techniques and Activities of Image and Sound (LPTAIS)” in partnership with the IUT Di Corsica.
Questions of network and distribution of scientific knowledge are thus an integral part of the strategy of development and structuring of the Caribbean Arts Campus.
The training in Art Trades has the goal of training a new generation of craftsman. The stakes are considerable because in this domain it is our role to produce professionals ready to intervene in any area of human activity, capable of providing made to measure responses, anchored in a reality specific to our region but one that also finds an echo beyond the island.
The degree for access to university studies (DAEU) set up in partnership with the UAG, allowing students without a baccalauréat to enhance the value of their artistic potential so as to pursue a curriculum in higher education of art.

.txt

Published by the École Supérieure d’Art et Design -Grenoble -Valence and B42 publications, under the direction of teachers Annick Lantenois and Samuel Vermeil, .txt is an annual publication dedicated to the study of the diversity of practices and research in graphic design. It is presented as a space for writing proposed to students in the graphic design option of the Grenoble-Valence ÉSAD.
The first issue brings together texts originating in student degree projects (DNAT and DNSEP). Beginning with historical subjects, Sébastien Biniek and Angelica Ruffier initiate a dialogue with the present: Morgan Prudhomme tells the tale of his exchanges with engineers; Adrien Vasquez and Matthieu Meyer – in an interview with Paul Elliman – expose their thinking on graphic design. These texts testify to the commitment of their authors to current issues and notably that of digital culture, technical culture and design culture. Respecting the principal of the editorial line, the graphic design of the first issue was done by students of the Grenoble-Valence ÉSAD.

From—To

An initiative of students from the Valance ÉSAD, From-To is a bi-monthly, online review containing theoretical content that questions issues in design.
It takes the form of exchange and is designed to be read slowly. Envisaged as a tool to accompany students’ practice, From-To aims to be a thoughtful space enriched by contributions from its correspondents.

activities and events

The Grenoble ÉSAD organizes workshops with guest artists, critics, writers and designers in addition to study trips in France and abroad. It regularly programmes seminars, lectures and presentations of work of all types (exhibitions, performances, concerts, projections,…) and actively collaborates with the cultural structures of the Grenoble conglomeration and its region in the organization of events. These events, whose initial purpose is one of pedagogy, are opportunities to further anchor the school in the professional network of contemporary art and to open it out to the population of the City of Grenoble and the region.
The Grenoble -Valence ÉSAD is part of the network formed by the four higher schools of art in the Rhone-Alpes region. In this capacity it favors inter-school pedagogical projects and the professional insertion of its graduates

post-curricular or extracurricular activities

Classes for children, adolescents and adults: an introduction to visual arts, drawing, painting, sculpture, engraving, watercolor, illustration, photography, volume-installation, history of art.

international cooperation

In the framework of the organization of studies, the eighth semester is dedicated to international mobility. Each student is invited to travel abroad and face the demands of the world through either a study trip, or an internship in a professional structure.
The Grenoble ÉSAD participates in the ERASMUS programme. Numerous partnerships with international higher educational establishments have been set up. Financial support is provided to students through different grants and scholarships: Erasmus, Explo’ra sup from the Rhone-Alpes region and OFAJ -the Franco-German youth office.
Certain of the Grenoble -Valence ÉSAD partner establishments: University of the arts, Central St Martin, London; Kingston University—Kingston upon Thames; LUCA—School of Arts, Gand ; ERG/School of Graphic Research, Brussels ; The National Higher School of Visual Arts of la Cambre , Brussels ; Muthesius Kunsthochschule, Kiel ; Stuttgart State Academy of Art and Design ; Weissensee Berlin ; HEAD – Higher School of Art and Design, Geneva ; National University of Arts, Bucharest ; Facultad de Bellas Artes de Valencia (Polytechnic University) ; Srishti School of Art, Design and Technology, Bangalore ; Concordia University, Montreal ; PUC Campinas, Brazil.

Le Havre

Ecole supérieure d’art et design Le Havre-Rouen | Le Havre

about

The École Supérieure d’Art et Design Le Havre-Rouen, combining the two art schools of Rouen and the Havre, has become, in fact, the largest art teaching establishment of the higher Normandy territory and also one of the more important cultural institutions of our region.
The ESADHaR proposes a wide range of artistic training through an ensemble of diverse propositions turning on two major axes: art and graphic design. The Rouen site is entirely devoted to the art department. It is located at the Aître Saint-Maclou and its immediate surroundings; the origins of this monument go back to the Black Death of 1348 that caused the deaths of a large part of the population necessitating the creation of a necropolis. The Havre site proposes two departments: art with the “espaces spécifiques” mention and Graphic design and Interactivity.
At the Havre, the « specific spaces/ espaces spécifiques » mention of the art department places the accent firmly on the relationship with territory. In Rouen, different workshops for research and creation push the students to take possession of sites in Rouen itself and in its surroundings.

ESADHaR Research Laboratory

The school’s research unit is developing a number of programmes.

research programmes

Edgar : Exposer le Design Graphique, Actes & Recherches

«Une saison graphique (A Graphic Season)» is an event bringing together exhibitions of the work of Graphic Designers in different places in the city of Havre. It seemed opportune to create a research group combining a number of teachers from the ESADHaR and the founding partners of the event. There are a number of objectives: to provoke and fuel contemporary graphic creation and accompany the invited graphic designers in the conception of their exhibitions, but also to question the practice of the graphic design exhibition, participating in an inventory of its current state, putting in place the intellectual and logistical tools that provide for its particular nature and considering the place of the city of Havre in he creation of these systems.

Édith – Edith researches, Edith publishes, Edith exhibits

Edith is a research laboratory set up by the ESADHaR in collaboration with the Cneai (The National Centre of Publishing and the Printed Arts) and the Haute Alsace University, Mulhouse. The team is made up of 13 artist researchers, graphic designers, art historians, a graphic design historian, a librarian, exhibition curators and screen-printers. Around fifteen older students also contribute to the Édith laboratory.
The purpose of the research is related to published works of art. Édith develops an inventory of publications by artists and graphic designers from the eighties to the present day. Geographically speaking, Édith pursues its research in Europe as well as in other countries, with specific and exemplary practices, by following a number of routes as opposed to territories. Step by step, Édith draws a path, modeled on the trade routes of the eighteenth century, elaborating a true atlas, with the goal of identifying different editorial forms of publications of authors.
From the start, the laboratory has closely associated theoretical and artistic research – a research that is as much on art as it is by art – this being considered as a fundamental specificity of a laboratory set up in an art school.

Idea – Interactivity, Design & Art

The programme has the goal of establishing a collection of works that focus on the specific question of using and learning digital tools for creation: programmed, generated, interactive graphic design, digital installations, online publications.

Le cabinet des écarts singuliers (The Cabinet of Singular Differences)

Since the end of the sixties contemporary art has seen the development of artistic attitudes looking to distance themselves from traditional spaces for creation and display. Working “beyond the walls” of the studio and the gallery, artists have experimented with the real through practices known as “contextual” and “on site”. The laboratory operates in the same vein, seeking to question the role of the on-site in current creation, to understand how this practice is evolving and the interactions that operate between the site, the work of art and the people connected to the sites.
The context of the Havre is particularly rich when it comes to urban change, historical trauma, specific geographical (the Seine estuary) and economic (the uninterrupted development of the port and its surroundings throughout the centuries, population movements) traits lend themselves perfectly to this research.
A number of axes of work are in operation within the laboratory: the wasteland and its industrial landscapes, Art/Nature/Heritage, art and its mediation.

Réseau DELAPEINTURE (The DELAPEINTURE network)

This research, centered on the contemporary issues and practices of painting, carried out by the Grenoble-Valence ESAD, was put together in 2010 with a 16 member research team; today, a dozen research and teaching organizations (1) in France and abroad continue to contribute to the development of this project, around the three initial issues:
– Painting: an object for considering the world. How does painting participate in the production of new codes, new specific models that take their place in our relationship with the contemporary world? In the tumult of pictorial practices and the connection with other art practices, what are the forms, processes and materials that painters use in the their current practice?
– Spaces and contexts of painting today. This second issue concerns the articulation between forms and context, and the strategies of painters in spaces of presentation and exhibition. It also questions the capacity of painting to continue the debate around the place of the spectator, starting from its inherent conditions.
– Local, global – the territories of painting. This issue questions the territory of painting on at least two levels; on a global level that is expressed in the constant flow of exchange, images and cultures; and on a local level which can be seen as much in the training provided by schools as in artistic circles. What is the role of artists, of their grouping in local scenes in a globalized context?

Ecole supérieure des beaux-arts Tours-Angers-Le Mans | Le Mans

about

The consolidation of the higher schools of fine arts of Tours, Angers and Le Mans into a Public Institution for Cultural Cooperation (EPCC) would seem at first to be the completion of a pedagogical reform, one of the objectives of which being to join with European higher education and the recognition of its diplomas, in particular the DNSEP master’s degree. The EPCC is embedded in a system of exchanges and valorization of the teachings that have facilitated the development of research departments.
The three sites, Tours, Angers and Le Mans form a unique establishment implanted in two regions, three departments and three cities, that hosts 550 students and brings together 105 teachers, artists and theoreticians. It is an associated member of the PRES (Department of Research and Higher Education) UNAM (the Nantes Angers La Mans University) and the Centre – Val de Loire University PRES.
The TALM Esba translates is openness and its autonomy into interdisciplinary practices and is developing, in a complementary fashion, art education classes for the general public. The TALM Esba EPCC is a higher education establishment awarding qualifications under the Minister for Culture and is a member of the network of French higher art schools.

Grande Image

Originating in experiences with contemporary art practices, a preoccupation with the urban, art on the scale of the landscape, a thinking on the context of art, a pedagogical idea within an art school along with a favorable urban context and strong partners, Grande Image is a project that has, over three years joined together questions and committed partners. The development of Grande Image has led to the formation of a network of contacts and of a working group that has since been built in a more formal manner, bringing together participants, as much in artistic practice as in theoretical thinking on art, the image and the city.
Carried by the higher school of fine arts, Grande image has enlarged its scope of action to other partners in France and abroad. Its development, as much on a theoretical level as in the production of experiences and artistic works required the setting up of a structured and coordinated research programme. This programme completes and enriches the territory of work developed within the school to join with a thinking on the status of the image in contemporary art, on the relationships between art and the urban context, between art and specific technologies, particularly digital, and deepening the view of contemporary productions that bring the whole of these questions into play.

Synthetic

The Synthetic research programme aims to question the impact of computationalism on modes of production and of work in our technological societies, specifically in the domains of art, design and architecture. This impact is especially comprehensible as a climate of radical, theoretical and practical innovation, in all domains where the computational mode provokes a convergence of knowledge (symbolic, calculative and experimental). Synthetic thus proposes gathering together different actors (academic, scientific and industrial) and envisages production in the context of design and architecture from the angle of automation, vision of computers, advanced materials and the cognitive sciences.
One of the major objectives of the programme is to dissolve the idealism that too often governs research in the domain of the digital, that accompanies the banal fascination with the technical element transported outside of its usual field and because of this can not consider the true consequences issued from a generalized use of calculators on the shaping of knowledge, on the conditions of production and on the creation of value. It is from a realist point of view that finds it impossible to exclude the challenge of technological determinism, that Synthetic attempts, through collective experiences such as workshops, seminars, experimental platforms for creation and the making of prototypes, to perceive the concrete effects of the computer on forms (objects, environment and symbolic), on work and its organization and on the costs of fabrication.
Synthetic is open and collaborative in nature, in a context where culture, technology, work and politics are linked by way of the computer.

publications

Proceedings of seminars, artists’ books, leaflets for exhibitions.

activities and events

Exhibitions: 3 or 4 per year. Study days in the framework of the Carrefours de la Pensée, Forum Le Monde-Le Mans, in collaboration with Le Monde diplomatique. Concerts, sonic poetry evenings. Projections of experimental cinema at Beaubourg hors les murs.

The establishment itself offers a number of possibilities for study abroad. The exchange programmes are part of the standard student curriculum and are mainly geared towards fourth year students. A period of study in a foreign school demands that the student present the outline of their personal project to other teachers, other pedagogical and cultural milieus. The three school sites have signed bilateral Erasmus conventions for the mobility of their students and teachers and also maintain privileged partnerships with institutions located outside of Europe.

Insularité comme laboratoire (Insularity as a laboratory)

Smallness, confinement, speed of reaction, the limited number of parameters to take into account in an insular microcosm are many of the particularities that make the island a true “natural laboratory” for fundamental and applied research.
Fantasized about in its literary and philosophical representations, the island remains a unique theme – a summary or a condensed version of the universe. The island is to the ocean what the Earth is to the cosmos. This imaginary, once rid of its clichés, necessitates openings and connections between ideas, traditions and cultures. The island is also a junction in a network of knowledge as knowledge itself is a rhizome-like archipelago. The programme aims to transpose this same model, both theoretical and territorial, so as to observe its influence in the context of situations of conception and production of an intellectual, cultural and artistic nature. One of the objectives is to ask questions of comparative analysis, calling upon experience coming from other geographical, economic and culturally insular situations, relating as much to the results of necessary adaptations as to processes of acclimatization of traditions, creative ideas, objects…

Ecole nationale supérieure de Limoges

about

Limoges ENSA: contemporary training since 1881
The Limoges ENSA is one of seven national higher schools of art in province. It is the successor to the École nationale des arts décoratifs created by Adrien Dubouché, industrialist and collector. It is home to a teaching that questions the relationship between contemporary creation and technology in the fields of art, design and ceramics. A member of the European ceramics department, since 2012 it has awarded a master’s level qualification and continues, like the ensemble of establishments of higher education in the visual arts, to position itself in the context of european higher education. The school continues to develop privileged partnerships in the field of contemporary ceramics within the context of the UNIC (Urban network for innovation in ceramics) Network and the activities of its studio for research and creation installed in the Jingdezhen Ceramics Institute (China).

Kaolin, international “art, design and contemporary ceramics” post graduate course

This high level training belongs within the international context of the globalization of artistic and inter cultural exchanges between Europe and Asia, through the two major spaces of porcelain production of Limoges and Jingdezhen (China). Under the direction of Michel Gouéry, invited artist of international renown, this postgraduate course is open, by way of exam, to 4 creators, DNSEP or Master 2 level graduates or their professional equivalent.
This one year programme proposes a strong individual and collective experience, founded on the acquisition of knowledge and the sharing of skills; allowing one to forge a ceramics culture in the specific field of porcelain and to elaborate an ambitious research project linked with the ENSA’s artistic and professional networks in France and abroad. To operate their research, artists benefit from a collective space and have access to the school’s range of pedagogical and technical resources.
For each session, the selected candidates define, in collaboration with the guest artist, the expectations and modalities of their research programme. They specify the rhythm, organization and objectives.
The ENSA covers expenses linked to production and distribution of projects, accommodation and travel fees in France and abroad.

Lorient

Ecole européenne supérieure d’art de Bretagne | Lorient

about

The école européenne supérieure d’art de Bretagne (EESAB) – Brest, Lorient, Quimper, Rennes hosts around 900 students in four different sites. It proposes curricula in art, design and communication (Bac +3 and Bac +5, equivalent to a Master’s degree) in art, design and communication. A number of fields of artistic thought and expression establish the Lorient site project. First, regarding the contemporary narrative.

Contemporary narrative is characterized by the hybridization of genres, means and supports. Genders because it borrows as much from history, the novel, philosophy, essay, poetry, psychoanalysis, the human sciences, the documentary investigation, the reportage. Means because it uses texts, images, sounds, actions, choreographies, objects, environments to create what we should now call narrative experiences. Hybridization of the supports, finally, because the same story is displayed on different screens, on architecture, on paper or in the air.

The Art option will accommodate more personal approaches, built on the individual questions of the creator (who often, by joining collective questions, find an audience). In keeping with the pedagogical project, the art option emphasizes the contemporary practices of drawing, graphic arts, photography and video in a constant relationship to the spaces and places of the narrative.
The Communication option will welcome more creators who are intermediaries, who put their personal writing on the service of third-party projects. It is implemented in Lorient with particular support on graphic design and the creation of still, active and interactive images.

As an author, the artist exposes himself. As an actor, he / she is involved in the many fields of our society: the educational, the cultural, the social, the events, the institutional …

As far as the Communication option is concerned, teachers stimulate the students’ ability to adopt a binding exercise (techniques, subjects, formats, sponsors …), to respond to them by going beyond the initial order with a personal and relevant approach.

As far as the art option is concerned, pedagogy is less linked to external constraint and aims to develop a lasting autonomy in the production of artistic forms.

Jacques Bertin Project

The Graphic of Jacques Bertin – visual creation and human sciences at EHESS (Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales)

The EHESS graphic laboratory, created in 1954 by Jacques Bertin, was a resource for all the researchers of this institution who were looking for visualizations and graphic proposals enabling them to speed up their research. The color, the line, the arrangement of signs in space were so many means, tools serving thought and the elaboration of knowledge. On the occasion of the program of actions set up by EHESS to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the publication of Jacques Bertin’s Graphic Semiology (1967), EESAB Lorient wished to join in the celebration of this important event, dealing with the collaboration between humanities and visual research.

The experience of narrative

Contemporary narrative is characterized by the hybridization of genres, means and supports. Genders because it borrows as much from history, the novel, philosophy, essay, poetry, psychoanalysis, the human sciences, the documentary investigation, the reportage. Means because it uses texts, images, sounds, actions, choreographies, objects, environments to create what we should now call narrative experiences. Hybridization of the supports, finally, because the same story is displayed on different screens, on architecture, on paper or in the air.
Since 2012, EESAB has offered a seminar entitled “The Experience of Narrative”. Artists, theoreticians, art critics, exhibition curators come to present their practices, perceptions, experiments around the notion of narrative, which founds the project of establishment. Each episode of the study days is followed by the publication of a book by
different contributors (artists, theorists, teachers or art school students), whether or not they participated in the study days.

Tomorrow the ocean

BOAT ® is an artistic and educational research vessel conceived as a mobile workshop, a work platform, an annex of the Ecole supérieure supérieure d’art de Bretagne, meeting other territories, other cultures, other disciplines. This project was initiated by three EESAB teaching artists, Nicolas Floc’h, Erwan Mével and Jocelyn Cottencin, within the framework of the “territories extremes” research line.
Since November 2014, Nicolas Floc’h, Erwan Mével and Jocelyn Cottencin have started up with Pierre-Yves Glorennec and Jacques Dussol the renovation of the boat “Grand Largue”. Students from Brest, Lorient and Rennes were involved in the project. On the construction site, Nicolas Floc’h and Erwan Mevel coordinated the work, together with students from Rennes.
On the graphic project, Jocelyn Cottencin initiated a draft codex, chromatic, formal and typographical layout of the boat and its environment with students from Lorient.

TRAVEL AND TRIPS
The school organizes regular trips or study trips for students (Venice Art Biennale, Documenta in Kassel). Every year, during the first semester, a trip to Paris is offered to students of the 1st year, with a program of visits (museums, art centers, galleries, etc.)

SEMINARS AND DAYS OF STUDIES
The teaching team of the Lorient site offers seminars or study days, with the participation of external guests (artists, teachers, researchers from all disciplines):
× Either on joint projects with other EESAB sites.
× Either in connection with the project to set up the Lorient site. Every year since 2012, the study days “L’expérience du récit” are an opportunity to invite theorists and artists to share their experiments or analyzes around this notion of narrative, the foundation of the pedagogical project. These days give rise to an eponymous annual publication.

EXHIBITIONS
The gallery of the school hosts on average 3 exhibitions per year. Artists, collectives or gallery owners, in conjunction with the teachers, propose a selection of works and travel to meet the students, to animate a conference or a workshop related to the exhibition. This program includes exhibitions linked to the biennals organized in the Lorient conurbation, the “Rencontres photographiques” and the “Itineraires graphiques” co-founded by the school.
The school encourages partnerships to allow students to expose as much as possible outside the walls.

Ecole nationale supérieure des beaux-arts de Lyon

about

The Ecole nationale supérieure des beaux-arts de Lyon has been located on the site of the Subsistances since 2007. With a grasp of the current forms and the stakes of creation, it aims to help unique talents emerge and to produce the conditions for a high level professionalization in the fields of art, design and creation. The school proposes the major options that structure the field of art teaching in France, with a number of curricula in art and design.
Beyond the second cycle, the school proposes an international post graduate course geared towards young artists and a third cycle of three years aimed towards young researchers and artist-researchers, structured around two research units: ACTH, dedicated to the articulation between Contemporary Art and the Time of History, and DataData, dedicated to the contemporary esthetic issues raised by digital cultures.
The school develops a programme of exhibitions in the context of the Réfectoire, gallery of the Lyon Ensba, and an editorial policy geared towards research with the launching of the review Initiales in 2013.

third cycle

3rd cycle – research in the Lyon Ensba

The 3rd cycle – research is structured in two currently active Research Units (UR):
– ACTH contemporary art and the time of history
– DatAData poetic media and the esthetic issues connected to digital cultures
The 3rd cycle takes place over 3 years, with a possibility to extend it a further 1 or 2 years, and is validated by a 3rd cycle research degree awarded by the Lyon Ensba. The forms and conditions of defending the degree are specific to each UR and to each project; this can take the form of an exhibition, publication, edition, distribution, event, and is accompanied by a research dissertation. Each UR functions with a team of 5 artist-researchers benefiting from an annual research grant. Each one is registered as a student of the school. He/she can be a 3rd cycle student registered with another, partner, higher education establishment. To this can be added artists, visual artists, theoreticians and professionals who participate for all or part of the programme as “associated partners”. A transversal conference common to both research units, to which the post graduates are associated, is an important element in the structuring of research within the 3rd cycle.

post-graduate

The postgraduate art course in the Lyon Ensba

The postgraduate art course in the Lyon Ensba consists of a year of high level training consisting of a residency and a scholarship, for a group of five young international artists, coming from a training in art and holding a DNSEP or equivalent international qualification and after a process of selection through “concours (competition)”. First, under the direction of artists Nick van Steeg and Marie José Burki and critic Jean-Pierre Rehm at the moment of its creation in 1999, then under the sole direction of Jean-Pierre Rehm until 2012, the post graduate programme is currently under the direction of François Piron.
Geared towards 5 young artists with diverse geographical origins already engaged in different practices, this one year programme invites them to pursue and develop their work while benefiting from the school’s infrastructure and its workshops and studios, and to participate in critical discussions, encounters and trips. On this frontier of the professional field of art that these artists often face alone, the Postgraduate course proposes an experiment in modes of social being, founded on exchange and thought. Trips abroad, within and beyond the borders of Europe, are organized with the aim of generating encounters with numerous artists and professionals, developing a critical vision of exhibitions and events, and observing, on the scale of a city or a country, the elements that make up the fermentation of an art scene.

preparatory schools

The preparatory class of the Lyon Ensba

The École nationale supérieure des beaux-arts de Lyon provides, in complement to its art and design cycles in higher education, teaching described by the term “preparatory”, a general training aimed towards preparing students for entry to higher education art establishments. This section is part of the national network of public preparatory classes at the heart of the APPEA (Association of managers of art school public preparatory classes) organization. Theoretical and practical, the teaching takes place over approximately 35 hours of weekly class-time with classes from September to May.

research units

ACTH Contemporary Art and the Time of History

Since January 2004, in collaboration with the Centre for History and Theory of the Arts of the School for Advanced Studies in Social Sciences of Paris ((CEHTA / EHESS), the school has set up a research programme run by artist Bernhard Rüdiger and theoretician and art historian Giovanni Careri, that has for subject the construction of the real in contemporary art.

1. A first step in research around the ethical question of a “fair image” of the real was published in 2008 by Archibooks in Paris under their direction: ” Face au réel : Éthique de la forme dans l’art contemporain ” / “Faced with the real : Ethics of the form in contemporary art”. This book provides an account of work done with: Pietro Montani, André Gunthert, Thomas Schütte, Luciano Fabro, Allan Sekula, Ernst van Alphen and Mieke Bal, in collaboration with young artist researchers coming from the Lyon Ensba and doctoral students from the EHESS.

2- In the context of this research unit, the Lyon Ensba has hosted conferences by Georges Didi-Huberman, Alfredo Pirri, Michael Fried and Luc Delahaye invited to illuminate artistic systems of distancing and “thickening of the present”.

3- The “History shaped by the work of art” seminar, held at the Lyon Ensba in 2009 defined the axes of thinking of the new research unit that was constituted under the direction of Bernhard Rüdiger and Giovanni Careri. It works around the issue of “Contemporary Art and the Time of History” (ACTH), and proposes to study the relationships between certain productions of current art and “regimes of historicity” that it mobilizes.

4- The research unit met in Paris for a monthly conference at the EHESS inviting historians François Hartog and Sabina Loriga with their research group, l’Atelier International de Recherche sur les Usages Publics du Passé / the International Workshop of Research on the Public Uses of the Past (EHESS).

5- The Lyon Ensba has since hosted intensive conferences with artists Frédéric Moser and Philippe Schwinger and art historian Ralph Ubl.

6- In 2010 the ACTH research unit published Luciano Fabro, Habiter l’autonomie / Inhabiting Autonomy, edited by the Lyon Ensba, following the seminar “Luciano Fabro, the autonomy of the artist – new space or last entrenchment”? held in October of 2008.

7- In November of 2011, the research unit experimented a first shaping of its thinking with the experimental exhibition “Suspended Time / Le temps suspendu”, with works by artists from the unit, as well as “Diorama” by Candice Breitz, “Lunch Break” by Sharon Lockhart, “Wavelength” by Michael Snow and a reproduction of the board on September 11th of the Atlas by Gerhard Richter, in addition to a certain quantity of data, or links, trough various documents, visual and textual, organized in the form of a “table of contents” of pages from an atlas such as those done by Aby Warburg.

8- The conferences in the EHESS in the 2011/12 session were dedicated to theoretical elaboration and the development of this system.
The unit is currently working on a second edition of this experimental exhibition at the BAL of Paris in December 2013.

9- Since June 2012 the project “Suspended Time – History shaped by the work of art” of the ACTH research unit was selected by the CAP LABEX (Creation, Art, Heritage) with a subsidy going towards the publication of the results of the research. The ACTH research unit is supported by the Minister of Culture for the purposes of the 2013 call for projects of the Department of Visual Arts of the General Direction for Artistic Creation.

10- Publications by the ACTH research unit:
“Luciano Fabro – Habiter l’autonomie / Inhabiting Autonomy”, B.Rüdiger dir., with B.Corà, D.v.Drathen, L.Fabro, V.Goudinoux, G.Paolini, M.Montazami, E.Parendeau, Ph.L.Rousseau, M.Rowell, B.Seror, S.Tritz. Editions ENBA, Lyon, 2010.
“Face au réel. Éthique de la forme dans l’art contemporain”, G.Careri and B.Rüdiger, dir., a research conference with: P.Montani, A.Gunthert, Th.Schütte, L.Fabro, A.Sekula, E.v.Alphen and M.Bal. Bookstorming, Paris, 2008.

Initiales

Appearing twice a year the review Initiales, produced and published by the National Higher School of Fine Arts (ENSBA), Lyon, sketches the outline of gallery of “hollow portraits” organizing itself around “source figures”, fictional or existing. Figures of artists, philosophers, writers, architects and film makers whose common denominator is that they have done “groundbreaking” work in their domain and beyond, in the fields that they have invested or passed through. The oeuvre, the thinking but even more than that the methods deployed, paths explored (and sometimes aborted) and the networks created by this figure of reference which serves as a subtext or a script for each delivery.
Beginning with the same figure, gathering together a series of centrifugal contributions, Initiales thus brings into play a use of the source and an experience of time that are not those of the historian nor of the scientist, but that are work in the work of art and are at the heart of the thinking led since 2004 by the ACTH (Contemporary Art and the Time of Research) of the Lyon Ensba.

Marseille

Ecole supérieure d’art et de design Marseille-Méditerranée

about

The École supérieure d’art et de design Marseille-Méditerranée today presents its two important ART and DESIGN departments (3 major axes: object design, space design, digital design). The architecture of the studies presents a wide array of pedagogical activities that place the emphasis on the multiplicity of practices in art and design, the critical analysis thereof, the intersection of the theoretical, practical, technical and technological; each of these approaches in phase with the requirements of the interdisciplinary at work in the world of contemporary creation.
The school has been engaged in an evolving dynamic since its change in status when it became a Public Institution for Cultural Cooperation (EPCC) in 2012; the passage to a Master 2 grade of its DNSEP (National Degree in Visual Expression), the development of a programme aimed at reinforcing re-entry to the workplace, the setting up of 2, 3 year, postgraduate research programmes in art and design , (Bac +8), the development of a professional network of artistic, scientific, university and economic partnerships, and the launching of a digital project of consequence (LoAD Platform et fablabs) designed to generate the conditions for thinking and experimentation of the wide field of digital practices, linking engineering, research, technology, creation and distribution.
Designated by the Minister of Culture as a “pilot site”, the ESADMM implements pedagogical actions and specific systems to accompany and welcome students who are deaf or hard of hearing.

Founded in 1752, The École des Beaux-Arts de Marseille has undergone a number of reforms and transformations down through the years, pursuing a geographical path that led it to the Bernadine convent, not far from the Canebière, in Luminy, in 1969 in the National Park of the Calanques. The ESADMM benefits from a privileged environment at the heart of the Lumin University domain. It sits on 18 hectares, in buildings designed by René Egger, and offers 10,000 m2 of workshops, classrooms, an amphitheater and exhibition spaces to students, spaces where volume and light are privileged.

Graduates: Gilles Barbier, Fouad Bouchoucha, Gilles Desplanques, Yann Gerstberger, Yazid Oulab, Olivier Dahan, Marc Aurel..

third cycle

DSRD – Advanced degree in Design Research

Research in the Higher School of Art and Design of Marseille is in a period of development and is structured around diverse partnerships (institutional and university), as much for the art option: SONART as for the design option: SPACES WITHOUT QUALITIES. An administrative research unit gathers and structures the projects. The projects containing the ensemble of the conditions that define a level of research can ultimately, propose 3 years of study (bac+8) to postgraduate students and award a 3rd cycle qualification, the DRSD (Advanced National Degree in Design Research ) geared towards student-researchers coming from initially diverse training backgrounds and recruited through a call for applications.

preparatory schools

The preparatory class of the ESADMM

In September 2013 the École supérieure d’art et de design Marseille-Méditerranée opened a full time, one year, public preparatory class for preparing the entry exams of higher art education establishments. It hosts 20 students with around 35 hours of classes weekly. The objectives of the training:
– Prepare students for the higher art education establishment entry competitions and help them to put together a portfolio of personal work
– Familiarize students with formal and conceptual issues at stake in the modalities of teaching in higher schools of art.
– Provide the visual and technical bases in the relevant fields
– Favor the emergence of a discourse that reveals a critical mind, a real motivation, a singularity and a curiosity in each student
– Help students choose their orientation in the context of their abilities and desires.

Sonart – for a digitized and indexed corpus of sound art experiments and productions

A new “exhibition catalogue”: proposition of a digital platform for the indexing and distribution of works of visual sound art.
Despite the fact that the domain of sound art is in a period of expansion, we have only seen the very beginning of its inventory, historical approach and its theorization. Sonart wishes to make an important contribution, constituting an important documentary base dealing with artistic and experimental practices from the beginning of the 20th century to the most current works. This base will be created from specific systems and tools for indexation.
The role of the ESADMM in this partnership is to produce a number of exhibitions, starting with works connected to the domain of research and consider their scope, drawing on French public collections. (FRAC, FNAC and others). By orientating the exhibition in relation to a theme, a genre or a specific question each time, the aim is to, by way of the exhibition, complete the research by being based on the reality of the retained works. This research project is the fruit of a collaboration between universities and art schools where different areas of expertize and fields of knowledge intersect.

Spaces without qualities – Design, urban spaces and digital technologies

Digital technologies, the development of which has amplified and accelerated urban change begun at the end of the 19th century, have today infiltrated urban space itself, modifying the landscape as much as their use and modes of management. The data which transits through the GSM network, wifi networks, user information and transport infrastructures, systems of surveillance and RFID devices accumulates in the urban space, then constantly produces and distributes spaces whose nature is modified under the regime of hybridization of physical space (material spaces, built space) and “digital space”, where permanent connectivity, systems of geo-localization, ubiquitous and mobile computing profoundly alter urban ways of being on an individual and collective scale.
The question that preoccupies design in the context of these issues is to know how to qualify the permanent tension that characterizes this contemporary city (global/ local, private/ publication, anonymity/surveillance, individual/collective, interior/exterior, built up spaces/ spaces of transit/flow,…), how to orientate oneself in an environment with porous borders, in complex places, multiple and fragmented, how to materialize the effectivity of a relationship between bodies, places and digital communications networks, in a word, how to give shape and meaning to that we wish to call, echoing Robert Musil’s figure of the Man without qualities, “spaces without qualities”.

Since January 2013, the ESDAMM has hosted its first researcher, Adelin Schweitzer, within its walls in the context of the Spaces without qualities/Design, urban spaces and digital technologies, research programme.

The Positions Bureau

With: Vanessa Brito (Lecturer in Philosophy), Anna Dezeuze (Lecturer in Art History), Charlie Jeffery (Artist), Frédéric Pradeau (Artist), and the students of the Ecole Supérieure d’Art et de Design Marseille-Méditerranée. Description Where do I stand? How can I hold my ground? For how long? These are some of the questions that the Bureau des positions sets out to investigate by focusing on the relation between physical actions – such as taking a stance, occupying a space, holding a position or carrying out a project over time – and their artistic and political implications. Of particular interest is the articulation between the two meanings of the word ‘resistance’: it describes both a physical qualities of materials and bodies, involving phenomena of inertia and resilience, and human efforts and actions ranging from opposition to insurrection and disobedience. At what points do these two meanings intersect? When does a ‘stance’ turn into ‘resistance’? Are some physical postures, such as the ‘standing position’ described by Roland Barthes, ’eminently critical‘? Could there be a connection, as he suggests, between an uncomfortable position and the feeling of ‘un-ease’ that gives rise to ‘political consciousness’? As we set up various intersections between different practices – in art, literature, philosophy and science – we will also pay attention to the position effects that result from changing locations and different relations of proximity. We will study the ways in which words, bodies and objects are placed and arranged – whether in the space of the picture or the exhibition, on a stage or the page – according to tensions, the balance between different forces, be they dynamic or static. What does adopting a position involve? In what ways can one navigate a given institutional, cultural or political context? It may be less a matter of finding a place than of inventing shifting spaces of dis-placement, in which everything and everyone is, in fact, always out of place. Programme, 2015-2016 Our starting point for this academic year will be Thomas Hirschhorn’s workshop in which the artist asks: ‘Where do I stand? What do I want?’ We will then follow our second guest artist, Julien Prévieux, in his tactical positions in given institutional, cultural and political contexts, as he rolls around his everyday space (in Roulades), sends out Letters of Non-interest (Lettres de non-motivation) or explores the world of patented gestures in What shall we do next. We will also look at stances such as Bartleby’s (in Melville’s famous short story), which combined different ways of occupying space through immobility with variations on the sentence ‘I would prefer not to’. Such positions can be read as prefiguring ‘Occupy’ movements as much as artistic practices that reject production.

publications

The ESADMM edits publications in relation to certain pedagogical and artistic projects, to activities of research and expression carried out in the school. The degrees awarded (DNSEP art and design) are the subject of a catalogue each year. The school also publishes the ensemble of its pedagogical leaflets. A publishing section exists within the school (technical basics in Publishing/ prepress/ archives, screen printing, lithography/ offset/ engraving, infography) allowing students to shape, experiment and make multiple works of very diverse natures, from the creation of artist books to school dissertations (mémoires).

activities and events

Each year the ESADMM elaborates a complete programme of cultural activities within the school in addition to projects that happen outside the walls in relation with its partners: exhibitions, lectures and encounters, concerts, open days, workshops and guests, artist residences, etc.

post-curricular or extracurricular activities

With classes geared towards amateurs, both children and adults, more than 600 students practice the visual arts each week in workshops situated on 6 sites from the north to the south of the city. Driven by visual artists, teachers from the school, the originality of the workshops resides in the double approach proposed by teachers: practice the visual arts, but also develop an aesthetic sensitivity, allowing each student to inscribe their creative process in the modernity of the arts. As a complement, developing a general sensitivity to the History of art is proposed.

international cooperation

The school is committed to displaying a true international policy. Of course this is supported by the establishment’s first class student exchange network with almost 50 art and design schools around the world.
Each year, around forty fourth year students from the art and design option benefit from the numerous partnerships that have been developed throughout the years with other schools from around the world, whether in the context of the ERASMUS programme: Germany (Berlin, Bremen, Krefeld, Hamburg, Munich), England (Bristol, London, Leeds), Austria (Linz, Vienna), Belgium (Anvers, Brussels, Hasselt), Denmark (Copenhagen), Spain (Madrid, Barcelona, Bilbao, Valence), Finland (Helsinki, Vaasa), Greece (Athens), Hungary (Budapest), Iceland (Reykjavik), Italy (Bologna, Milan, Ravenna, Venice), Holland (Rotterdam), Poland (Gdansk), Portugal (Tomar), the Czech Republic (Prague), Switzerland (Geneva, Lucerne, Sierre, Zurich), Turkey (Eskisehir); and non-ERASMUS: Armenia (Erevan), Brazil (Rio de Janeiro), Canada (Montréal, Québec), Chili (Santiago), China (Peking, Shanghaï, Dalian), The Ivory Coast (Abidjan), Israel (Jerusalem), Tunisia (sousse)

gallery

The MAD, the gallery of the École supérieure d’art et de design Marseille-Méditerranée.
The MAD gallery in the center of town has the primary goal of bringing visibility to the school’s art options, revealed by guest artists, the choice of participants made by teachers, the event-related pedagogical forms, workshops, studios and the school’s research axes.

THE LUMINY GALLERIES
Located on the site of the establishments, two experimental exhibition spaces are available to invited artists, student and teacher projects and public renderings of work at the end of workshops.

specific equipment

The ESADMM benefits from a privileged environment at the heart of Luminy’s university domain. It covers 18 hectares, in buildings whose architecture was designed by René Egger offering 10,000m2 of workshops, classrooms and an amphitheater, privileging volume and light to students.
The school has the technological basis that covers the ensemble of the tools necessary for creation today: infography, wood, metal, publishing (screen printing, lithography, engraving…), still and moving digital images, sound, ceramics, 3D, modeling…
It has also implemented a large digital project (LoAD platform and fablabs) designed to create thinking and experimentation, inside and outside of the school, on the wide field of digital practices, linking engineering, research, technology, creation and distribution.

about

The Higher School of Art in Lorraine (ESAL) is a public establishment that makes up the only center for higher arts education of the visual arts – music -dance in Lorraine.

The school contain around 300 students in 3 different sites. It proposes curricula in art, design and communication (Bac +3 and Bac +5, equivalent to a Masters).

Situated in the heart of Metz between two institutions of major artistic importance: The Metz Pompidou Centre and the Fonds Régional d’Art Contemporain (Frac Lorraine), the Ésal covers 3 000 m2. A privileged access toEuropean space, crossing national frontiers confers a particular status on theschool offering further cultural opportunities due to its geographical positionclose to Germany, Belgium and Luxembourg – known as the territory of La GrandeRegion.
This rich environment is concerned with the directing and circulating of images, the notions of artistic devices, and graphic and narrative systems. Backed up by permanent workshops (a film studio, mixed media workshops, edition, photography, video, print making studios, wood and metal workshops) and important resources in the fields of multimedia, ofinteractivity, of sound and specialization, of edition, photography andtraditional media (etching, drawing, painting…) students find here theconditions of development for personal research projects.

The Ésal is the only school of art in further education having connections with an exceptional Centre of art dedicated on a European level to modern and contemporary art. In terms of synergy the construction of the Pompidou Centre in Metz has a highly favorable incidence on its teaching project. The Centre allows the Ésal to take advantage of exceptional resources, be they documentary or related to events. It also associates students and teachers in the setting up of experimental projects.The concept of a studio of creation, especially, allows for the development of collaborations where the creating of hybrid images, associating sound andmovement provokes questioning about scenography and the whole spectrum of setting up, from photographic to film sets, exhibition and theatre design.

Pavillon Bosio – École supérieure d’arts plastiques de la ville de Monaco

about

Built on the rock of Monaco, overlooking the Mediterranean, the Bosio Pavillion has experienced different transformations before establishing its current identity. First a drawing school and then school of fine arts, it has been a Higher School of Visual Arts (ESAP), awarding a Master’s level National Diploma in Visual Arts and a National Higher Diploma in Visual Expression.
The specific nature of the existing curriculum at the Bosio Pavillion is to transmit a multipurpose training in art and set design to its students, and to equip them with the tools allowing them to transpose their personal research to both stage and exhibition spaces. With the affirmed will of developing a studio pedagogy and externalizing modes of operation, the school regularly participates in partner projects and has also initiated the Workshops for Research and Creation (ARC) that are organized in the form of a network.
Essential moments in a students path, these local and international collaborations associate at the same time museums, universities, art centers and theater and dance companies. More specifically, the cultural context of the Principality of Monaco offers an environment which is conducive to encounters with actors from the art world, such as the Monte-Carlo Ballet Company that each year welcomes students in prestigious conditions. Thus future creators are regularly confronted with the demands of professionalization through experiences of commissions that also contribute to the construction and extension of the pedagogy. Within this dynamic of exchanges, projects have the opportunity to take shape on a full scale, and a playground is created where theory is reinvented and deployed.

post-graduate

Pavillion Bosio postgraduate in art and set design

Set up in 2009, the ESAP postgraduate programme has the goal of inventing a framework conducive to the emergence of research in art and set design, as much from a practical as a theoretical point of view, and is open to various fields of investigation such as theater, dance, exhibition, installation and performance. In this context, the school offers the possibility of benefitting from the relationships that it enjoys with its larger partners, in addition to conventions for professional internships. It thus favors the connection of registered postgraduate students with its national and international networks, and in this way inscribes itself in a mission of accompanying its young graduates in their entrance into the professional world.
The programme’s pedagogy is founded on the dialogue between knowledge and skills, through local projects and ones further afield, by participating in the school’s pedagogical activities (seminars, conferences, lectures), through individual or collective meetings with teachers, and voyages. Students have access to the school’s infrastructures (spaces, computers and associated technology, tools for production etc.), and they can also benefit from a studio that has been made available to them by the Board of Cultural Affairs of Monaco (these studios are attributed after the examination of applications).
In addition, every year two students receive a research grant awarded by The Monaco Project for the Arts (MPA) associative organization. The MPA also organizes an exhibition in a contemporary art gallery in Monaco for one of the artists.
Candidates participating in the postgraduate programme must realize a theoretical production in the form of a publication in the pages of the Pavilion review and / or a visual production, in the form of a spectacle or exhibition hosted in one of the ESAP’s partner sites.

Pavillion – the symposium

Annual set design review

The Pavillion Bosio founds its research activities on an ambitious and innovative pedagogical project, in which the annual symposium that it organizes holds a privileged position. An event associated with the programme of the Monaco Dance Forum, a major contemporary dance event, the symposium invites artists, set designs and researchers to meet around a specific theme. The first four editions were dedicated to the imaginary of the stage in cinema, to a thinking around the set design of the auteur, to the relationships between visual arts and the space of the stage and the staging of the real. The symposium proceedings are published in the Pavillion review and also serve as a medium for thinking on the issues of contemporary and modern set design and contributes to the construction of a precious theoretical apparatus.

activities and events

– Exhibitions: an annual exhibition of third year students, an annual exhibition of fifth year students; « Carte blanche à un artiste (Carte Blanche to an artist) », a summer exhibition managed by the Monaco Project for the Arts associative organization.
– Participation in forums and festivals such as: Imagina, Monaco Dance forum, Printemps des arts, the Avignon Festival…

Montpellier

École Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Montpellier Agglomération (esbama)

about

During their curriculum in the ESBAMA, students progressively acquire the knowledge and fundamentals that give them the ability to intervene in the field of creation and allow them to successfully operate art research projects, thanks to the input of university methodologies and techniques (drawing, painting…) on one hand, and on the other, through the learning of technological tools (digital photography, video, computer generated images…).
Graduates from the Higher School of Fine Arts of Greater Montpellier are intended either to become artists, or to exercise a professional activity in the domains of art, creation, culture or teaching.

The establishment possesses many assets:
– The high quality of its teaching, coming from a multidisciplinary and experienced teaching team, that includes a number of artists and researchers,
– The constant presence of professionals and artists at the heart of the establishment, with regularly organized lectures and workshops led by invited personalities.
– The engagement of the establishment’s 200 students, with links to previous graduates.
– Its articulation with other establishments of Higher Education, including universities and art schools,
– The unique nature of a curriculum organized around a programme phase and a project phase, including a good number of systems allowing connections between practice and theory,
– The presence of integrated research group (Pratiques et numérique, Skéné, Art_valeur_marchandise, l’Âne musicien, ActuLab)
– An active relationship with the business world (the Cap Omega business nursery…)
– Its international development (Erasmus conventions…)
– Its active policy of exhibitions and publications,
– A range of materials allowing the realization of even the most elaborate projects,
– A connection with cultural establishments, including museums and contemporary art centers (Fabre Museum, the L/R FRAC, the National Center for Choreography of Montpellier…)

Nancy

École nationale supérieure d’art de Nancy

about

Founded in 1708 by the dukes of Lorraine, the Nancy School of Art was first an academy. The notion of “fine-arts” inherited from history no longer translates the diversity of approaches and practices of creation such as they are within the école nationale supérieure d’art de Nancy. Our approach is more open and unique, creating a balance between research and professionalization.
An essential axis of the art option is to widely examine questions linked to the spacialization of work. Notions of system, installation and environment are effectively an essential component of a relationship with art today. They articulate the permanent dialogue that artistic propositions enjoy with their context, from creation to the act of presentation.
The new department (communication option) develops a sensitive and responsible approach to the issues of creation in terms of “communication”. Far from the sole criteria of graphic formatting of fashionable productions, the teachers propose a wider approach to visual communication where current affairs, indeed society, as much as contemporary artistic positions, are analyzed and taken into account in production. The proposed path in no way aims to master the universe of “graphic design”, rather it encourages experimentation, porosity and areas of friction with contemporary society and the world.
The field of design investigation goes from the private, domestic sphere to the public, urban or territorial: the students are progressively faced with the project of the object, to the conception of space and the staging of objects in spaces. The option privileges rigorous research on the pertinence of the meaning and the uses of material, according to the objectives and contexts, so as to result in reasonable projects.

The Offshore school – the “globalization and creation” research programme

Shanghai, a megalopolis of more than 20 million inhabitants, one of the most dynamic cities on the planet, hosts the “globalization and creation” research programme. This is concerned with the issues of creation in the context of globalization. Trans-disciplinary in nature, it is open to post-master graduates of the Nancy ENSA. The offshore school gives each one of them the possibility to develop a personal project inscribed within four primary objectives:
– invent and experiment new strategies of innovation in a networked world and a globalized economy
– think and experience art as a major operator in the society of knowledge
– analyze and anticipate cultural and intercultural changes generated by new technologies
– highlight the esthetic stakes of a globalized culture

publications

Conference proceedings, exhibition catalogues, CD Roms, DVDs and DVD Roms, multiple posters and portfolios.
The school has developed a publishing and co-publishing programme and regularly publishes exhibition catalogues, works of art and research (5 publications or co-publications in 2011).

activities and events

Exhibition programme: 5 to 6 exhibitions per year in the NaMiMa Gallery and 5 or 6 exhibitions per year in partner spaces, Espace My Monkey, André Malraux Cultural Center, national stage, Museum of Fine Arts, Aquarium Museum…

international cooperation

Active participation in European Union student and teacher exchange programmes (Erasmus/Socrates)

gallery

In 2011, the school created its own exhibition gallery, NaMiMa, a 120m2 space dedicated to experimentation and practices of the exhibition. NaMiMa is an acronym taken from Nano/Micro/Macro. It places the accent on relationships of scale, movement, space and time. To move from micro to macro, is to shift from the individual to the collective, from the restricted to the global. A fundamental issue to be faced with within an art school.
The gallery privileges work done in a laboratory logic with young curators, young French and international artists with some coming from the ARTEM studios. It presents three or four exhibitions per year, one of them being the result of an international call for projects launched towards young creators, artists and collectives operating in the field of research being interested in emerging forms.

specific equipment

Wood, metal, casting-modeling, typography, engraving, screen printing, lithography, reprography, offset, film and digital photography (a shooting studio and two laboratories for the treatment of black and white and color photographs), CAD and CAO, multimedia (film studio, editing booths, post-production and mastering equipment), video, sound, prototyping.

École nationale supérieure d’art de Nice – Villa Arson

about

The Villa Arson is a Public Institution for Cultural Cooperation (EPCC) under the supervision of the Minister of Culture, creating a synergy between the activities of a higher national school of art, a center for contemporary art, an artist residency and a specialized mediatheque.
At the moment of its inscription in the European space of higher education, the Villa Arson redefined the place of research in its pedagogical curriculum. It is in a position to propose to its students different axes of work resulting from partnerships with actors of university research and French and foreign art schools translating the unique nature of research in art. Two examples: The ECART workshop for research and creation / European “art and ceramics” network and the LittOral ARC, exploring the relationship between speech, stag and body.
Students can also gain experience in cultural mediation and in mounting an exhibition in the context of the programming in a center for art.

Area 1: Practises and theories of exhibition (PRATHEX)

This line of research deals with questions linked to the exhibition, a practice that has been particularly developed at the Esban for a number of years – curators, exhibition assistants and student exhibitions in spaces that may or may not be devoted to art. Nonetheless, far from being restricted to questions of museology, to “writings” of the exhibition and to its formats, this axis intends to deal with the idea of the exhibition in an oblique fashion. Thus, these are attitudes (staging the artist), and paradigms (the temporality of the artwork, thinking the archive) that have been questioned under the angle of their display during the previous three programmes: Jeux d’exposition (2010), Publier/Exposer (2012), Temps exposés (2015).

Area 2: La flamme et le papillon (The butterfly and the flame)

Rather than concentrating on elements of identity, or of convergence between literature and moving images, this line of research plans then to question the different ways of conceiving and creating that are raised by their encounter, without denying the gap that separates them. It will thus be a matter of questioning the porosity between the forms proceeding from inherent means of expression, analyzing the issues of their tensioning, positing opacity and displacement as sources of research and experimentation at the same time in the theoretical and artistic fields.

publications

The school has a very strong editorial policy. It has published several research books and numerous catalogs of graduates.

post-curricular or extracurricular activities

Evening classes for adults and children’s classes.

international cooperation

Every year, Nîmes Art School (Esban) welcomes students from abroad. Foreign students may apply to study at Esban either as regular students (after passing the entrance exam or the mid-course admission) or as exchange students coming from a partner institution and staying for a semester or one academic year.

gallery

The Esban hosts in its main building a Gallery of 280m2. It allows the school to organize three or four exhibitions a year. This very solemn space can also be used by the students for their final exam.

specific equipment

Five 200m2 collective studios are reserved for students, allowing them to develop their personal projects and individual research.Publishing practises can avail of specific, well equipped workshops and the volume workshops are organised with tools and machines that allow students to work with wood and metal as well as perform modelling and casting.Three computer rooms (CAD, Video/Sound) and a photography laboratory are available to students who wish to work with images and sound.
The Esban also possesses a library that specialises in contemporary art, being part of the network formed by the centre for documentation of the Carré d’Art and that of the FRAC Languedoc-Roussillon.

Orléans

École supérieure d’art et de design d’Orléans

about

In an economic context, in full upheaval, the École Supérieure d’Art et de Design d’Orléans / ESAD (previously IAV) opens itself to new professions of creation and contemporary design, this so as to provide all of the possibilities available to students to lead substantial personal research, over three or five years in the establishment, and to prepare their careers.

The visual and graphic design section is supported by a fixed image department (photo) and an animated image department (cinema/video) and a graphic design/publishing department; the object/space design is supported by a volume/model department. Connections are made between the two sections; transversal projects, encounters, common workshops facilitating permeability and alternatively privileging moments of individual work and communal oeuvres. The transversal studios in drawing, representation, computer design and multimedia contribute to this, along with the General Culture studio that proposes communal lectures.

The Orléans ESAD is an art school clearly geared towards design, applied to our living environment, from graphic design to photography, from furniture to industrial products.

ECOLAB

ÉSAD Orléans «ÉCOLAB» research unit, supported by the ministry of Culture and Communication, is dedicated to structuring, orienting and developing programs and research projects, from signs to space, in relation with research institutes at a regional, national and international level. The general orientation of ÉCOLAB is defined by an ecological reflection in the large sense (environmental, social, technique, mental) resting on the idea that any conception, production, and exchange activity is defined by a set of relations where each element of the system has an influence on all the others. It is more clearly about understanding how design, as a form of thought and rational creation, can enlighten, deepen and transform the way in which ecology and digital technology determine contemporary human life. According to such a perspective, ecology and digital technology are not considered as simple themes but as new research conditions similar to experience, creation and society.

École nationale supérieure de création industrielle – Les Ateliers

about

The École nationale supérieure de création industrielle is the only national higher school exclusively dedicated to industrial design. Its degrees are recognized at a master’s and post-master’s level. Design, such as it is viewed at the ENSCI, is the art of giving form to intended objects. Intention is human, social, societal, economic. The objects are those of the 20th century, material and immaterial, systems, products and services. The form goes from the visible exterior envelope, palpable, even audible, from the object to its internal structure; the first being indissociable from the second.
The ENSCI- Les Ateliers train designers of the 20th century. It prepares them to be mediators and integrators of various disciplinary fields or of various functions in a business. The pedagogy is built at the confluence of the arts, the humanities and the social sciences, engineering and technology, economy and management. The ENSCI has taken the risk of an ambitious and multi-disciplinary training, both theoretical and practical, with the intensive apprenticeship of the project in “project workshops” directed by professional designers.

Created in 1976, under the name of the Atelier national d’art textile (National Workshop for Textile Art), the textile department became part of the ENSCI in 1985 and definitively became the ENSCI Textile Design in 2009. It is a unique structure in Europe by way of its high level of artistic and textile training. Its mission: research and creation in the domain of textiles.
In 2009 the ENSCI opened a residency at the heart of the CEA laboratory in Grenoble (LETI). The objective is to bring design students closer to research so as to invent possible futures by proposing new uses of technology through the creation of objects, both material and/or immaterial, answering to contemporary issues.
The ENSCI is a founder member of the « Hautes études, Sorbonne, arts et métiers » department of research and higher education and an actor of the « Paris Novi Mundi Université » (IDEX PNMU) initiative of excellence, in the context of the Investissements d’avenir (future investments).

third cycle

Design doctorate

Since 2010 it has been possible for experienced designers or students coming from design schools and university education who have a research project that places design at the heart of an issue, a terrain, of an experimentation, to write a thesis. The ENSCI is part of the Pres Hésam. Theses in the ENSCI are supported by university doctoral schools. Registered under the titles of recognized disciplines, in the field of art and technology, the social sciences and computing, they contribute to the field of research in design. They innovate through chosen themes and methods of monitoring (accompanied by designers, immersion in the school).
The thesis is geared towards designers that have already completed a Master’s 2 in research. Exceptions can be made, according to the experience, the history, the creations that can be taken into account in terms of research skills. Students follow conferences on methodology and participate in the scientific activities of the Pres and of the Labex CAP (Creation, arts et heritage). They are involved in the Paris Design Lab. Cifre contracts and doctoral allocations are also possible.

post-graduate

Specialized Master’s degree in creation and contemporary technology

Proposed by the ENSCI-Les Ateliers, it is a postgraduate programme certified by the Conférence des Grandes Écoles that welcomes French and foreign applicants coming from schools of higher education of creation (graphic design, design, architecture, visual arts, fashion design…). This formation with its professional orientation has the objective of allowing creators to drive a project at the intersection of contemporary artistic and technological thinking. When we speak of contemporary technology we mean new processes of design and manufacture, information and communication technologies, new materials and bio and nano technologies.
The Master’s programme has the vocation of training professionals in the field of creation who, in their particular fields of activity, will carry a project that integrates confirmed or emerging, innovative techniques and technology.

Specialized Master’s in innovation by design

Faced with changes in technology, with upheavals in the schemes of production, in the changes in economic paradigms and in the modifications in consumer behavior, businesses are more than ever confronted with the issue of differentiation. Today, “the obligation to innovate” to which economic actors are faced, tends to place design as an intrinsic value of business and an essential lever in enhancing its competitiveness. Innovation through design, it is through this assertion that the ENSCI contributes to shaping actors in companies by proposing a specialized Master’s degree that provides them with all of the elements for understanding, for ownership, so as to install design in a sustainable and sensible manner at the heart of business strategy.

ongoing training

Ongoing training programmes of the ENSCI

We offer businesses a unique environment to enhance, transform and accompany the changes in their professional practices. Contemporary industry must take into account evolving technology and social transformation. It must call upon new skills, mobilizing its resources in new approaches, and to that end invest in training. The designer, through his creativity, his capacity to anticipate and integrate contemporary challenges, is a wholly separate partner in a position to propose new concepts and give them form.
The ENSCI proposes programmes that are adapted to specific needs, in the form of conferences and workshops; sessions aiming to render participants sensitive to design through the domains of the product, services, urban spaces, digital design…but equally the 3 postgraduate programmes in the form of ongoing training. The ENSCI proposes two specialized Master’s programmes, Contemporary Creation and Technology and Innovation by Design. The third postgraduate programme, Nouveau Design, proposes to graduate designers to acquire an “enhanced profile”.

Each student has a mandatory professional internship lasting one term, in France or, for over half of them, abroad, and a large number of students travel to Europe or abroad for a university exchange.
The establishment currently has almost 80 partner schools and universities throughout the world. Three of them are considered to be footholds: Chiba University in Japan, The National University of Singapore in Singapore and Parsons, The New School for Design in New-York.
The MEDs (Master of European Design), organized with six other European institutes, allows a wide opening on Europe for students following this curriculum.

In the context of the Initiative for excellence project carried by the foundation for scientific cooperation PSL, Paris Sciences Lettres – Quartier latin, of which the ENSBA has become an associated member, our establishment contributes not only to the setting up of an original doctoral training in art, SCARe, but is also associated to programmes of distribution of knowledge such as the Faberlabo, a museum space destined to bring out the best of artistic and scientific collections of the institutions of the PSL, or the LiberLabo, digital network of the libraries.
Bringing science and art together, allowing creators and scientists to work and invent together, to explore the common areas of research and creation: such is the ambition of the doctoral training called Science, Arts, Creation, Research (SACRe), the result of the collaboration between these six institutions.

post-graduate

La vie tumultueuse des œuvres d’art contemporain (The tumultuous life of Oeuvres of Contemporary Art)

This programme, set up by the École nationale supérieure des beaux-arts with the École du Louvre, is geared towards fifteen or so students equally divided between postgraduate students of the Ensba and fifth year students from the École du Louvre; It aims to train participants in the specific area of the scientific management of contemporary works of art, complex installations in particular.
The conference studies the issues relating to documentation, archiving, conservation and restoration of works of contemporary art, leaning principally on tangible cases coming from the contemporary collections of the Museum of Modern Art. Demanding a full attendance record, it is composed of between four and five sessions, completed by a summary report, and results in the awarding of a training certificate. The programme, the conditions of participation and the precise dates of the conference will be communicated in October.

Programme for artists intervening in schools

This programme constitutes a one year long training programme in the school, leading to a postgraduate level degree. It has the goal of training young artists to intervene in schools while allowing them to develop their artistic practice. This programme is at the same time founded on the experience of an artistic and cultural project done with a class, and on research work destined to produce a dissertation with for subject the analysis of the specific nature of the role of the artist in an approach to education and transmission starting from the year long experience. This programme leads to an art degree in school intervention. The applicants must hold a Diplôme national supérieur d’arts plastiques / Higher National Diploma in visual arts (Dnsap) awarded by the École nationale supérieure des beaux-arts, having obtained it in the three years previous to the current school year. The art degree in school intervention of the École nationale supérieure des beaux-arts is a higher education degree. It is awarded by the school’s director on behalf of the state.

Pau

École supérieure d’art des Pyrénées — Pau Tarbes | site Pau

about

The école supérieure d’art des Pyrénées — Pau Tarbes proposes professionalizing training programmes recognized in the european network of higher education.
The art-ceramics training ensures entry into domains connected to the field of culture, to trades relating to the ceramics industry, to the world of art and design. The multimedia graphic design curriculum opens the way to working in the domain of the image – publishing, art, press, multimedia, advertising, institutional communication, internet, video games, motion design, typography, urban development, signage… Creation and innovation are the key words of these curriculums that open out onto a wide range of professions, certain still remaining to be invented and the possible overlapping of different disciplinary fields is seen as a source of wealth.
The school has put in place the tools that allow students to cultivate a critical distance in the context of their future trade and to envisage new approaches to the theoretical, esthetic and cultural issues of their discipline. The idea is, while participating fully in the field of research in art and design, to establish and reinforce the connections with other sectors of research in the sciences in general.

research units

L’Observatoire

The reinforcing and structuring of a research unit ensures long term research activity in the Pyrénées ESA. The five research programmes supported by the Observatoire research unit are based, firstly, on artistic creation, ceramics, graphic design and multimedia and secondly, on the exploration of other fields of knowledge, from the humanities to the sciences. Its programmes favor the emergence and consolidation of the personal project of future graduate artists and designers of the Pyrénées ÉSA. They aim to create a research environment associating teaching, production and distribution. With this goal in mind they maintain a close dialogue with other research centers that, in the territory or on a national and international level are interested by the themes being considered. An operational, observational laboratory, this unit encourages the confrontation of different approaches to creation, in the perspective of developing an intelligibility from the sensitive and in the sensitive.

Échappées

Annual art and design review
The first issue of Échappées, the annual art and design review of the école supérieure d’art des Pyrénées — Pau Tarbes, was published in January 2013 and will be available for download in the near future at: recherche.esapyrenees.fr/echappees
For issue n°1, in Tarbes, the Observatoire des regards conference, directed by Chrystelle Desbordes, questioned the notion of the invisible in art practices. In Pau, the Les pensées du design conference, led by Corinne Melin, questioned the role of the social sciences in the shaping of design processes.
Seeking to go beyond disciplinary borders, to outline the intersecting points of view and perspectives between the fields of art, design and those of the sciences. Échappées questions the articulation between theory and practice – questions located at the heart of the issue of research in a higher school of art.

about

Resulting from a joint decision by Angoulême and Poitiers to unite their resources and create a regional school, ÉESI is subsidised by the Ministry of Culture and Communication, the Regional Council of Nouvelle-Aquitaine, the two municipalities that host its facilities and the GrandAngoulême.
The school prepares students for the French equivalent of the BFA (the three-year Diplôme National d’Arts Plastiques) and MFA (the Diplôme National Supérieur d’Expression Plastique). The three disciplines offered by its Art option – comic art, digital art, emerging practices – put the emphasis on exploring the relations between thought, criticism, the production of visual works and research. In partnership with University of Poitiers, a master’s degree in comic art completes ÉESI’s graduate level offer. In addition, ÉESI opened in 2016 an international course in comic art, a one-year programme (School diploma) designed for young foreign comic artists.
The pedagogical project is implemented by a team of theoreticians and artist-teachers, accompanied by assistants, media librarians and technicians, all involved in various aspects of the contemporary arts. Perspectives are further broadened by workshops, seminars, lectures and visits by outside professionals and experts.
ÉESI is especially attentive to the relations that students develop with the art world(s). That is why students are encouraged to travel and to work with established artists or in cultural institutions, and to participate in local and international events and festivals. Every day, ÉESI’s national and international partnerships help open up new perspectives, new ways of bringing together theory and practice, research and art, and finding and transgressing new frontiers.
By encouraging experiment and awareness of new developments in all the arts (music, cinema, literature, the performing arts, etc.), as well as the dialogue with other fields of knowledge (science, cultural studies, human sciences), the different components of the ÉESI teaching programme, from the first degree to the postgradute program on Document and Contemporary Art and, since 2016, the PhD “Practice and theory of artistic and literary creation in comic art” offer students and budding artists an environment and resources to learn and produce.

Diplôme Supérieur de Recherche en Art (DSRA) – Document and contemporary art

Founded in 2010 at the initiative of the European School of Visual Arts, the post-graduate program, Document & contemporary art, became a degree-granting research program in 2014, awarding a PhD-level DSRA (Diplôme Supérieur de Recherche en Art), in partnership with the École nationale supérieure d’art de Bourges. This experimental research program places equal emphasis on collective and individual research agendas.
The program is open to young art or film practitioners, curators and theorists seeking to prolong their studies through a three-year, doctoral-level program, irrespective of media or technique. Participants are expected to follow the program’s collective activities and to undertake individual research integrating artistic production and theoretical reflexion. Individual research projects must be validated by a committee made up of the academic advisory team and an external assessor at the end of the first year. Successful completion of the three-year program enables participants to obtain a PhD-level Degree in artistic research (DSRA).
The program is by nature nomadic, displacement being a conscious methodological choice. Its activities are condensed into once-monthly meetings of one week, held in different cities (Paris, Buenos Aires, Bourges, Poitiers, Angoulême, Belgrade…). For these meetings, the program functions as a seminar, inviting artists, theorists, curators, activists, etc. Participants are required to attend the collective research seminars and to engage in a regular writing practice in the form of reports and correspondence. An annual publication provides an account of the program’s activities by bringing together writing and other work from the participating artists and invited guests.
The program recruits internationally. Principal working languages are English, French and Spanish.

Doctorat de création Expression artistique et littéraire spécialité bande dessinée

Practice-based PhD Artistic and literary expression in comic art

Resulting from a partnership between the University of Poitiers and the European School of Visual Arts, the practice-based PhD Artistic and literary expression in comic art is open to all candidates with a Master’s degree / DNSEP from higher education institutions, whose subject is based both on a strong artistic practice in the field of comic art, narrative drawing (or any experimental form in this field) and theoretical research. The thesis, prepared at the University of Poitiers and the ÉESI (based on the existing partnership at the Master’s in comic art level), is subject to the methodological and quantitative requirements of a doctorate but supplemented by elements that attest to an artistic practice-based research.

post-curricular or extracurricular activities

Postgraduate research-creation residencies

In the context of the professionalisation of students, the ÉESI wished to open art residencies abroad to the graduates of June 2018.The implementation of a research-creation scholarship programme within the ÉESI is the result of a common finding in the major French art schools, namely the difficulty that most young artists have to develop their creative work, to show their work to the public and more broadly to get in contact with art professionals. For this first edition, three destinations have been selected thus giving the opportunity to three selected graduates, one by destination, to experience a first art residency abroad for a duration of 3 months in Fall 2018. The residencies were chosen for the quality of their activities and their location in line with the artistic orientations of the ÉESI:

La Cúpula, multidisciplinary art center in Mérida, Mexico, in partnership with the Yucatán School of Fine Arts (ESAY)
InterAccess, non-profit gallery, educationalfacility, production studio, and festival dedicated to emerging practices in art and technology located in Toronto, Canada
Can Serrat, artistic residency in El Bruc, Catalonia, which brings togetheran international community of visual artists, writers and musicians who share,mix, coexist and create in a common space.

international cooperation

International openness is one of the priorities of the school strategy. Mobility is a flagship project which is developed in the long term and tends to structure pedagogy more and more.

This international openness, based on the evaluation of existing partnerships as well as on the prospection of new exchange partners, makes it possible to send students, teachers and non-teaching staff abroad and, conversely, to welcome students and art professionals within the school.

“Scenes of excellence” are favored for all these exchanges. Indeed, according to each practice taught at the school, there are reference places most often located in cities with a particularly dynamic artistic scene.

As part of their Master’s programme, all fourth-year students are going abroad for a semester. Their destination is chosen based on the criteria stated above and according to their personal projects.

The school keeps abreast of the state of creation on the different continents, currently with a predominance of Europe, North America and Asia.

New partnerships are being established with structures located in South America (Argentina, Mexico, etc.) and on the African continent (Senegal in particular).

about

The école européenne supérieure d’art de Bretagne (EESAB) – Brest, Lorient, Quimper, Rennes hosts 900 students on 4 geographical sites. It proposes training at a Bac +3 and Bac +5 levels (equivalent to a Master’s) in art, design and communication. The Art option is the main line of the Quimper site of the EESAB since its origin, and in this ways gives the objective and ambition of training artists. The pedagogical project aims, leaning on the skills and experience of the artist-teachers and theoreticians, privileging the diversity of practices and approaches, all the while strengthening its knowledge of the spaces where the artist works: exhibitions, publications, public spaces, performance situations, through continuous platforms of work all throughout the curriculum, open to all of the students from the 2nd year onwards:
Platform « Formes creuses (Hollow forms)» : Production/exhibition (Hervé Le Nost, Yvan Le Bozec)
Platform « Editer » : from flyer to book, from poster to website (Alain Le Borgne, Antoine Dorotte, Yvan Le Bozec)
Platform « Situations » : experimenting with languages as sound, writing, performance (Christine Lapostolle, Anne de Sterk, Karine Lebrun, Hervé Thoby)
Platform NDE (Nos Désirs d’Extérieurs) : public space, urban space, 1:1 scale projects : (Bruno Peinado, Virginie Barré, Antoine Dorotte).

École supérieure d’art et de design de Reims

about

The École Supérieure d’Art et de Design de Reims is a Public Institution for Cultural Cooperation (EPCC) that hosts 240 students, in two main options: art and design, the complementary nature of which gives its color to the teaching being done. The pedagogy aims to train contemporary artists and designers, each of them in a strategy of authoring. Experimentation and research permit the utilization of multiple techniques linked to contemporary artistic creation in the service of these projects. Numerous partnerships with higher university education render the research dynamic in its character and, each year, in each option, the involvement of businesses or outside institutions provides a context of practice that allows graduates to become extremely complete professionals.
All of the branches of product design are addressed: object, furniture, space, being conceived of in a visual manner and engaged with important societal questions. Two transversal, themed workshops: one linked to the culinary, the other to the plant, supported by specific experimentation and knowledge that enhance the designer’s field of activity. Graphic and multimedia design is particularly developed around the issues of the interface in communicating objects.
Art, being the common base for disciplines, is in Reims, a very specific option in its relationship with the issues of the contemporary artist: the option functions as a think tank, aiming for the artistic and social autonomy of the student.
The postgraduate programme allows students to follow a personal project in culinary design, and a business nursery-incubator can welcome young graduates.

ongoing training

Drawing workshop

Observational drawing with life models, or still life experimenting various techniques and tools such as: charcoal, chalk, ink, watercolor, etc.
The notions addressed are – study of proportions- relationship with scale – relationship with space – notions of full and empty – working on movement – different moments when sketching – the search for a personal writing.
During each session, a certain number of these exercises, or variations thereof are done, each student appropriating them according to their own rhythm, level of skills and expectations.

Painting workshop

The classes are interested in all forms of expression and take different mediums into account: poster paint, watercolor, oil. The classes are underpinned by the issues of contemporary painting.
Aspects such as the theory of color, composition, form and the relationship with scale are dealt with all throughout the year. Matter and space are the subject of specific sessions and serve as a jumping off point for observation of the real, so as to then be developed in a more unique way.
Subjects are chosen so as to work water based techniques (water color, acrylic, poster paint) in addition to oil and the preparation of media (canvas, wood, paper); The objective is to allow each person to develop a personal writing while studying the tech and history of painting.

research units

Forms of social innovation – Design Research Unit

By “social innovation” we mean the interaction between creation and the social field. Because it aims to favor the well being of individuals and collectivities as much as possible, but also its “non-standard” nature, often led by unique actors, social innovation appears as a creative value, of which design can be the vector. Thus the posture of the designer is similar to that of the “social innovator”, touching ways of life, of production and of uses.
The Formes de l’Innovation Sociale research unit aims to federate and structure the actions, programmes and teaching in the ESAD that are linked to this issue, on a regional and international level. It takes the side of investing the field of design in its multidisciplinary openness and its transversality (object and graphic/multimedia). The idea is to secure that which is unique in Design research in the ESAD of Reims, without losing the precise nature of its specialities: Art, Culinary Design and Plant Design are the subject of distinct research.

research programmes

Art et Philosophie

Since 2010, the “Art and Philosophy” study days have been organized in partnership with the Philosophy department of the Literary Studies and Humanities UFR of the Université de Reims Champagne-Ardenne. They result in a common publication of the proceedings by Epure editions.
2010 : L’oeil et l’esprit. Merleau-Ponty between art and philosophy
2013: Discussions between art and philosophy. Languages and images with Gilles Deleuze.
2014: Re-appropriation in art – Pitfalls of author’s rights and the power of the fake in the era of Open Source.

Artist Run Spaces

Artist Run Spaces is a general research theme backed by the Master’s in Art of the ESAD. It hypothesizes a particular economy of production – that of Artist Run Spaces, as a possible matrix of a pedagogical and collaborative platform. How, through the analysis of the means that it has at its disposal and the means that it engages, can this functioning be a possible model for production in art? How and why can these modes of (auto-) production generate collaborative forms? To what extent can the formats of experiences be models of transmission? In other words, how can the observation of a particular structure – where domestic space is mixed with artistic activity, and the identity is distinct from that of a gallery or an institution to favor the exhibition as form, can it be the subject of a productive, constructive and even pedagogical research? This programme is put together with institutional partners, mainly international in origin (Goldsmiths College, London, SIAC of Chicago, Dar Al Munian in Morocco, etc.).

Banquet Scientique

After Paris at the 104 and Marseille at the Friche Belle de Mai, the Banquet Scientifique has moved to Reims.
The Banquet Scientifique is a stage concept offering the sharing of knowledge and flavors at the same time and in the same place.
This concept comes from a thinking on systems that favor transmission and on forms that can be given to such thinking. It is at the same time a culinary design performance and an interdisciplinary, and international, symposium that aims to question the modalities of academic research all the while providing a sensitive experience participants and audience.
The propositions take the form of oral communication, performances and visual oeuvres: designers, performers, visual artists, essay writers, musicians, philosophers and poets meet to speak about them or sing, theorize, dance, show or smell within the freedom given by the flavors of a feast.
Students from the culinary design workshop of the ESAD of Reims (class of 2013/2014) imagine the set design system that will allow for links to made between knowledge and discovery, pleasures of the eye and the mouth. Those of the Lycée des Métiers Gustave Eiffel prepare the meal. Participants enjoy a scientific experience similar to a symposium and an esthetic experience engaging sensitivity and perception. In 2013, the first two editions of the banquet had the theme of “Pillage and Waste”, one in the 104 in Paris, the other in the Friche de la Belle de Mai of Marseille (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XxifTGeqSUA).

Réseau DELAPEINTURE (The DELAPEINTURE network)

This research, centered on the contemporary issues and practices of painting, carried out by the Grenoble-Valence ESAD, was put together in 2010 with a 16 member research team; today, a dozen research and teaching organizations (1) in France and abroad continue to contribute to the development of this project, around the three initial issues:
– Painting: an object for considering the world. How does painting participate in the production of new codes, new specific models that take their place in our relationship with the contemporary world? In the tumult of pictorial practices and the connection with other art practices, what are the forms, processes and materials that painters use in the their current practice?
– Spaces and contexts of painting today. This second issue concerns the articulation between forms and context, and the strategies of painters in spaces of presentation and exhibition. It also questions the capacity of painting to continue the debate around the place of the spectator, starting from its inherent conditions.
– Local, global – the territories of painting. This issue questions the territory of painting on at least two levels; on a global level that is expressed in the constant flow of exchange, images and cultures; and on a local level which can be seen as much in the training provided by schools as in artistic circles. What is the role of artists, of their grouping in local scenes in a globalized context?

Rouen

Ecole supérieure d’art et design | Rouen

about

The École Supérieure d’Art et Design Le Havre-Rouen, combining the two art schools of Rouen and the Havre, has become, in fact, the largest art teaching establishment of the upper Normandy territory, and also one of the more important cultural institutions of our region.
The ESADHaR proposes a wide range of artistic training through an ensemble of diverse propositions turning on two major axes: art and graphic design. The Rouen site is entirely devoted to the art department. It is located at the Aître Saint-Maclou and its immediate surroundings; the origins of this monument go back to the Black Death of 1348 that caused the deaths of a large part of the population necessitating the creation of a necropolis. The Havre site proposes two departments: art with the “espaces spécifiques” mention and Graphic design and Interactivity.
At the Havre, the “espaces spécifiques (specific spaces)” mention of the art department places the accent firmly on the relationship with territory. In Rouen, different workshops for research and creation push the students to take possession of sites in Rouen itself and in its surroundings.

Saint-Etienne

Ecole supérieure d’art et design de Saint-Etienne

about

The École supérieure d’art et design de Saint-Étienne and the Cité du design chose to settle on an ancient site of weapons manufacture, and have taken the form of a Public Institution for Cultural Cooperation (EPCC) since 2010. The training in the ESADSE takes place over 5 years. It is organized into two curricula with art and design options. The ESADSE also offers a Master’s 2 in Public Space, in partnership with the ENSASE and the UJM, a Design and Research postgraduate course and a Master Prospectives Design Advanced Design in partnership with the IAE Université Jean Monnet and the École des Mines of Saint-Étienne.
The association of the school with the Cité du design is a real advantage for the school, which benefits from the activities and network of the Cité du design: exhibitions, lectures, research programmes…With the Cité du design being in direct contact with the professional world, the ESADSE increases the opportunity for encounters and projects with different companies.
The ESADSE is also the only school of art and design in France to be completely involved in an internationally renowned event, the Saint-Étienne International Design Biennial. This event is a tool for training, exchange and visibility. It thus benefits from means with which to develop its networks through encounters, to valorize its production, to explore ambitious subjects and especially to work on the question of the exhibition and visual identity.

Design and Research postgraduate course

Created in 1989, the Design and Research postgraduate course of the ESADSE is a place for experimentation, thinking and elaboration of projects based on a wide ranging and diversified vision of design. It operates simultaneously as a laboratory for creation, an incubator for projects and a research center. It is geared towards graduates of higher schools of art and design, to doctoral students and active designers. Among the tools at its disposal is the review Azimuts, an editorial asset designed and produced by student-researchers. The postgraduate programme is open to holders of a BAC +5 or professionals with at least 5 years of experience in the design field.

research units

IRD Le laboratoire Images – Récits – Documents (Laboratory for Images-Stories-Documents)

These three terms define the field of research within the Laboratoire
Images_Récits_Documents. The laboratory does not specify one single subject of research, its title communicates a desire to approach a field so as to consider its limits. The research operates on the exposition of logic between the three terms and does not pretend to exhaust the logic and issues contained in the image. The goal is for the IRD laboratory to measure and understand the modalities of the image in its current relationship with the real according to the determinations of the story as a field of production for the narrative staging of reality and according to its objective presentation (the document).
The IRD laboratory defines its general approach to research as theorized practice. The research questions the processes and procedures of the image: the field of research that is opened is that of imagenization. Practice is not the result of a preceding theory, it is thought of in terms of successive experiments allowing for the production of concepts. The object of the “image” is thus built within an approach wherein practice does not validate or overturn a hypothetical condition but where it is already a theoretical approach to the image that conditions the conditions of its appearance. The distribution-publishing is then a space of experimentation where the validity of concepts is determined.
The relationship with images currently concerns Art just as much as it does Design. The problematic axes deal with the sensitive visual and visible deployments and have the aim of understanding the place of images if the field of practices. Though the idea is to understand the redistribution of their production and uses, the idea is also to experiment with newer techniques of production of images and to understand how they are determined in, and through, the representation of an ideology. These questions then serve in the construction of unique and original images, integrating the transformation of the relationship of images to other practices of formulation and formalization of the world.

LEM The Laboratory for experimenting modernities

Since 1863, succeeding each other as methods of historical and theoretical reading of art have been modernity, the avant-gardes, modernism and postmodernity. But where are we now? Are we still modern? Have the avant-gardes really disappeared? Is modernism still appropriate? Are we all still soluble in all-in postmodernism? Or, has contemporary art defined a new mode that is unique to it? The Modernité(s) laboratory proposes to consider some of the questions being asked here, not for the simple pleasure of discussing the number of angels that can dance on the head of a pin, but to attempt to rethink our contemporaneity and that which is at stake for its main actors, those that we train: artists.

The RANDOM laboratory (lab)

The RANDOM (lab) of the Digital section of the ESADSE is a research space dedicated to experimentation in art, design and newer media. Set up in 2011, it proposes to follow a unique path between practice and theory.
In addition to being a resource center, and a work space allowing the creation of electronic installations, the RANDOM (lab) provides access to an “arduinothèque” made up of a selection of arduino systems and associable extensions. Students can in this way have a rapid and direct contact with this type of interface, so as to pass quickly from designing to modeling projects that incorporate electronics. Students associated with RANDOM (lab) also benefit from the range of software (3D, 2D, etc.) and materials (3D printer, digital printing…) available in the Digital section so as to best run the technical aspect of their projects.
Team: Damien Baïs, François Brument, David-Olivier Lartigaud.

Azimuts

Founded in 1991 by postgraduate students, the review Azimuts is, at the same time, a space for thinking and exchange around the current issues of design, a terrain for graphic experimentation and a medium for communication and valorization of projects. With the goal of opening up a debate it contains the points of view of important figures from the world of design as well as figures from further afield. Published twice a year, with a print-run of 1000, being a bilingual publication distributed in France and abroad in specialist bookshops for art, architecture and design, Azimuts holds a unique place in the current landscape of design journals.
In 2012, Azimuts appeared in the form of a double issue (480 pages): Azimuts 37-38.
Price 25€ ISSN 1160 9958. The main section of Azimuts 37 is dedicated to the relationships between low-cost and design. Azimuts 38 proposes a selection of thirty or so design graduate projects coming from nineteen European schools, and the opportunity for a more detailed exploration of the approach of young master’s and doctoral level graduates.
Issue 39 was published in September 2013: echoing the exhibition, Les androïdes proposed by M.-H. Caraës during the 2013 Saint-Étienne International Design Biennial, the main section of Azimuts n° 39 is dedicated to animals and their links with design.

Training centers for participating visual artists

A space for thinking, experimentation and exchange of knowledge, the Haute école des arts du Rhin (HEAR) is one of the training centers for participating visual artists that has been certified by the Minister for Culture and Communication.
Its goal is to provide a complimentary training to artistic practice, based on the acquisition of didactical skills and capacities for thought applied to contemporary creation.
Provided in Strasbourg, the 280 hour training is to be understood as a preparation for interventions, on the basis of a unique practical experience, with diverse audiences in various contexts: scholastic, extra-curricular, prison, hospital, associative and cultural services.
The CFPI brings together interns coming from diverse origins: young graduates, professional artists, participants, teaching assistants, etc.
Since its inception more than a hundred artists, both from France and adjacent countries, have followed this training.

research units

Visual Communication

From 2013 – 2014 the Haute école des arts du Rhin incorporated a research unit, Visual Communication, backed up by three research programmes (Didactique tangible, De traits et d’esprit, Lignes de front).
Coming from a long tradition of engraving and the printed book in the upper Rhine and from a school of applied arts created in 1892, the Communication option of the Haute école des arts du Rhin is built around three workshops that develop original objects and share the same pedagogy: the graphic communication workshop, the illustration workshop and the visual didactics workshop.
The major axes of research in the option are articulated around evolutions as reformulations of reading practices. Visual communication is little investigated, ill theorized and neglected by the major currents of contemporary visual thought in art schools. This has generated a nonsensical situation: our societies produce more and more images, and yet we have, for the most part, become unable to properly read the world of graphic signs that surround us.

research programmes

De traits et d’esprit (Of wit)

This programme studies the current state and history of illustration by identifying present and future issues beginning with the steps of its evolution and the conceptual challenges that it has faced since its origins. The laboratory is also involved in contemporary production by inducing specific teaching and graphic experiments.
Co-ordination: Guillaume DÉGÉ & Olivier DELOIGNON

Didactique tangible – Convergences et interactions entre art et sciences (Tangible didactics – Convergence and interactions between art and science)

Involving French and foreign partners, Didactique tangible is concerned with the study of the convergence and interactions between art and science. It questions didactic systems from classical antiquity to the contemporary epoch through the study of different media and the possibilities offered by each of them for the transmission of knowledge through the image. It also claims an applied and experimental dimension of research led by creators and practitioners of the field under study.
Co-ordination: Olivier PONCER

Espaces sonores / Sound spaces

Bringing together the teams working in the field of sound arts in the HEAR, this programme studies the artistic, cultural and social ramifications of the relationships between sound and space since the advent of modernism, and creates new tools that are both practical and theoretical, so as to better understand, analyze and apprehend them in a critical manner. A first report will be presented as part of the main section of the third issue of TACET, the peer reviewed research publication published by the HEAR in 2014.
Coordination : Yvan ÉTIENNE, Bertrand GAUGUET, Philippe LEPEUT, Joachim MONTESSUIS and Matthieu SALADIN.

Ecole supérieure d’art des Pyrénées | Tarbes

about

The école supérieure d’art des Pyrénées — Pau Tarbes proposes professionalizing training programmes recognized in the European network of higher education.
The art-ceramics training ensures entry into domains connected to the field of culture, to trades relating to the ceramics industry, to the world of art and design. The multimedia graphic design curriculum opens the way to working in the domain of the image – publishing, art, press, multimedia, advertising, institutional communication, internet, video games, motion design, typography, urban development, signage… Creation and innovation are the key words in these curriculums that then open out onto a wide range of professions, certain still remaining to be invented, and the possible overlapping of different disciplinary fields is seen as a source of wealth.
The school has put in place the tools that allow students to cultivate critical distance in the context of their future trade, and to envisage new approaches to the theoretical, esthetic and cultural issues of their discipline. The idea is, while participating fully in the field of research in art and design, to establish and reinforce the connections with other sectors of research in the sciences in general.

research units

L’Observatoire

The reinforcing and structuring of a research unit ensures long term research activity in the Pyrénées ESA. The five research programmes supported by the Observatoire research unit are based, firstly, on artistic creation, ceramics, graphic design and multimedia and secondly, on the exploration of other fields of knowledge, from the humanities to the sciences. Its programmes favor the emergence and consolidation of the personal project of future graduate artists and designers of the Pyrénées ÉSA. They aim to create a research environment associating teaching, production and distribution. With this goal in mind they maintain a close dialogue with other research centers that, in the territory or on a national and international level are interested by the themes being considered. An operational, observational laboratory, this unit encourages the confrontation of different approaches to creation, in the perspective of developing an intelligibility from the sensitive and in the sensitive.

Échappées

Annual art and design review
The first issue of Échappées, the annual art and design review of the école supérieure d’art des Pyrénées — Pau Tarbes, was published in January 2013 and will be available for download in the near future at: recherche.esapyrenees.fr/echappees
For issue n°1, in Tarbes, the Observatoire des regards conference, directed by Chrystelle Desbordes, questioned the notion of the invisible in art practices. In Pau, the Les pensées du design conference, led by Corinne Melin, questioned the role of the social sciences in the shaping of design processes.
Seeking to go beyond disciplinary borders, to outline the intersecting points of view and perspectives between the fields of art, design and those of the sciences. Échappées questions the articulation between theory and practice – questions located at the heart of the issue of research in a higher school of art.

activities and events

Institut supérieur des arts de Toulouse

about

The institut supérieur des arts de Toulouse, an Établissement Public de Coopération Culturelle (EPCC – Public Institution for Cultural Cooperation), is the result of the unification in 2011 of:
– the École Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Toulouse, a royal academy founded in the mid-18th century, which became the fine arts department of the isdaT;
– the Centre d’Études Supérieures de Musique et Danse (CESMD) founded in 1993 by the government and the city hall of Toulouse, now the performing arts department of the isdaT.
Established in the heart of Toulouse on Quai de la Daurade, the isdaT fine arts school trains artists and designers. Designed as a research and experimentation laboratory, open to contemporary artistic realities, it aims to stimulate the emergence of unique talents, to train creative personalities (artists, designers, authors, etc.) capable of undertaking various career paths within a wide spectrum of disciplines. The institute offers the conditions for a high-level of professionalization in the major options that structure the field of artistic training in France: art, design and graphic design. The isdaT offers students exceptional working conditions through its pedagogical framework, its 10,000 square meters premises, the facilities of the technical suites, its centre for the loan of equipment and the resources of the library and the historical collection.

research programmes

Design and poverty

In order to construct a critical ensemble of methodologies extending the questions raised by the radical architectural movements in Italy in the 1970s and with a desire to link in with other European research, isdaT’s design option has developed research related to the “Global Tools” school of non-architecture or non-design. It aims to bring these ideas and this radical, historic design movement into conversation within the context of contemporary practice by displacing the tools, methods, and action of the designer. Since 2010, the scientific orientation of the course has revolved around a number of research fields and territories, by convoking and confronting other disciplines, particularly those of the city’s Institute.
The aim of the research programme is not so much to write a history of this group as to explore its concerns and methods, by considering the relevancy for today of past propositions from the field of design. The “Design and Poverty” programme (2016-2020) is part of ongoing work that has been conducted for several years by the design option team at isdaT. Here, the idea is to extend the thinking and practices stemming from attitudes such as the detachment of design from the economic imperatives of industry, the stimulation of individual creativity, or the implementation of a separation between producers and receivers. In particular, we explore the desire to implement “poor techniques”, to use basic materials and a limited range of tools (sometimes recycled tools and materials) in the search for an unpredetermined relationship between design and manufacture that also avoids prescribing techniques purely based on their usage.

LabBooks

LabBooks is a research programme that aims to extend the notion of writing to all dimensions of editorial practice, by showing why and how “the writing” of books can contribute to the production of discourse and thought, or even guide it, whether in the field of art, literature, or other fields such as cinema, music, or pedagogy.
The philosophy of the LabBooks course reveals that by considering the book holistically—whose writing can obviously be textual, but also visual, graphic, and editorial—we can broach various categories of publications using a multidisciplinary approach: artist’s books, bookworks, art books, visual literature, scores, and manuals.
It also transpires that writing books not only tends towards the definition of a personal style, but it can extend the work and its reception towards interpretation, performance, or diverse forms of activation more generally, since the book contains the conditions for extending beyond its pages, or offers an anticipation of future practices, reception, production, and situations.
At all events, publication emerges as a discursive process and the book or printed form as a tool for (re)formulation and statement. One predictable effect of this approach is also that of overturning the logic that sees publication as a final phase in the research process—one that is strictly communicative, akin to recording—whereas it may in fact be its driving force.
The research programme is conducted by way of a seminar, as well as through conferences, field trips, and art and editorial projects.

Visualising a problem

Visualising a problem: we understand this statement as an impulse for practical explorations to be undertaken as a group. At the same time, the field that this exploration could open up and demarcate will undergo theoretical investigations that will seek to explain the point of its application to our sensitive experimentation and configurations, but also to formulate and pursue their objectives. Concerning isdaT participants, the scope of this experimentation is cross-sectorial: they can discover and try their hands at the three optional fields of art, design, graphic design, and support studies undertaken within the framework of lessons on history and philosophical theories. Our experimentation could then call on all manner of media, from performance to web pages, to design and using the most improbable tools, video, models, painting, writing, sculpture, posters, photography, installation, song, conference, tree huts, movement, silence, etc.

post-curricular or extracurricular activities

adult classes
The classes offered by isdaT fine arts provide an introduction to the techniques of drawing and painting. Through exercises in observation, interpretation and experimentation using tools, materials and gestures, it is a matter of acquiring the basic formal techniques of these mediums. These artistic problematics are presented via their historical and contemporary contexts in the form of art history classes, and visits to museums and exhibitions. The goal is to enable each student to engage in a personal and original artistic approach and to understand the artistic movements of the 20th century through to the most recent developments.
Certain individual projects may, as required, by produced in some of the School’s technical workshops: engraving, screen-printing and photography.

children and teenagers
The classes for children and teenagers, from ages 7 to 17, constitute an introductory workshop to various creative techniques. After acquiring basic skills, each student progresses at their own pace and choose their own project. The work is completed individually within the group. The experience they gain is a real workshop approach that whets the child’s or teenager’s appetite to develop their discovery and practice of drawing, painting or artistic techniques.
Classes are organised into age groups.

international cooperation

Armed with a long tradition of exchanges, the isdaT has a vast network of partner institutions abroad and strongly encourages its students to undertake study abroad.
It also invites them to research internships in companies abroad. These trips are undertaken in the course of year 2 (performing arts) or 4 (fine arts). Scholarship students may enjoy a grant for studying in one of the partner universities or schools or undertaking an internship in a company abroad. Each year, isdaT fine arts hosts many foreign students along with those enrolled in the courses.
Within the framework of European exchanges, the students can take advantage of an Erasmus scholarship lasting several months. This request must be submitted to the institute every year in spring. This scholarship applies only once and cannot be repeated.
The French-German Youth Office (OFAJ – Office franco-allemand pour la jeunesse / DFJW – Deutsch-Französisches Jugendwerk) awards a scholarship once a year to one student of the school to study abroad at a German school. The OFAJ scholarships can be combined with Erasmus scholarships.
The Regional Council grants scholarship students travel funds valid worldwide: for study abroad at a school or for internships. It also provides scholarships for travel to the Pyrénées-Mediterranean zone (Catalonia or the Balearic Islands). The criteria for the attribution of scholarships from the Regional Council are reviewed annually.

gallery

In the building, the students enjoy access to sites of presentation and layout experimentation that are also sites of exhibition for guest artists.
This programming creates strong permeability between pedagogy and professional experience, since the students are involved in assisting with mounting the exhibitions of the guest artists.
— Room 02 (180 m2), renovated in 2013
— The Galerie du Quai (90 m2 + 15 m2), renovated in 2014, offers an exhibition room and projection space
— The Palais des Arts (300 m2), an interface between the city and the school, provides a space for presenting student work and the programming of important exhibitions
— Mur, an experimental gallery for fourth- and fifth-year students stems from an internal call for projects. Its configuration determines the forms of projects presented and allows students to reflect on the particularities of this space placed at the entrance to the School, in a thoroughfare frequented by all. Its bi-monthly programme authorises many students to share their experimentation with their peers and the general public.

specific equipment

The spaces and workshops are grouped into different sections:
— library: modern collection, historical collection, audiovisual collection and artwork collection (20 000 volumes, 50 subscriptions, video library, 10 individual booths, 4 internet equipped research posts,)
— prints: engraving and screen printing workshops,
— photography: three computer design workshops (55 Mac and PC workstations), digital photography (10 stations) and film photography, photography studio,
— painting: space for initiation, place for exchanges and monitoring of projects,
— multimedia: digital forms workshops, graphic design, 3D and computer-aided design and Machina workshop,
— sound and video: sound and video workshops, soundproofed studio, film studio, 8 editing workstations, 3 sound editing stations,
— volume: wood, metal, plaster and resin workshops.
These sections make up the heart of the establishment: teaching spaces. They are the place of an advanced technical elaboration at the same time as being one of thinking on materials and mediums.

Tourcoing

Ecole supérieure d’art du Nord-Pas de Calais | Tourcoing

about

The ésa hosts 250 students spread over two sites, favoring a diversified and original pedagogical offer within its art option. Forty artist-teachers, authors, graphic designers, editors, critics, philosophers, theoreticians, art historians and researchers are engaged in a dynamic of teaching art through art.
In Tourcoing, the mention “body and contexts: visual arts and stage arts” is interested in the links between visual and performance arts both in their disciplinary collaborations and in their fusion within innovative artistic propositions. This mention is built with the Center for the Study of Contemporary Art, a research laboratory of the University of Lille 3 and Latitudes Contemporaines, a professional structure for distribution and creation.
In Dunkirk, the mention “exhibition issues” puts the site into contact with the ensemble of partners and territorial projects (Museums – LAAC, Museum of Fine Arts, FRAC), Performance and exhibition spaces (Studio 43, Jazz-Club, Bateau-feu, 4 écluses), the University of the Littoral Côte d’Opale, the municipal Conservatory, companies, the urban community, maisons de quartier, cursive projects, structuring events, etc.) tending to guide the student towards work linked to the notion of projection of the object, the body or speech and towards contexts where it is completely engaged, outside of its place of production, as form.

CE2A (Art School Teaching Certificate)

The Art School Teaching Certificate (CE2A) is a university year training course allowing students holding a DNSEP in art to acquire the skills necessary to teach art, in France or abroad. This school certificate confers the know-how of a visual arts instructor, along with transversal and multidisciplinary skills. The teaching, developed over a university year, contains three strategies:
– general teaching in the form of classes introducing the students to the mastery of the European LMD system, the ECTS system and the qualifications;
– a practical teaching: students are put into teaching situations, becoming assistants to titular professors. Students choose two or three courses among the different school workshops: painting, volume, drawing, photography, video, publishing, general culture, art history, TIC, ARC;
– language teaching: English and, eventually other languages, such as Chinese,Russian or Portuguese, provided by specialized teachers.
Students in the CE2A are integrated on an administrative level into a fifth year, developing a different option (mention of the site or the school) to that of their DNSEP or, in the case of foreign students, to that of their school diploma In this way they have full student rights, access to health care and to grants and scholarships. They pay a yearly school fee which gives them access to the full range of the school’s resources. They take part in conferences, study trips and other activities outside of the school in the context of its institutional partners in France and abroad.

preparatory schools

FLEA Class – French as a Foreign Language / Art

The Nord-Pas de Calais/Dunkerque-Tourcoing Higher School of Art has launched the first FLE Art curriculum, geared towards non french speaking students who wish to follow a preparation for entry competitions of French Higher Art Schools. This FLEA class, set up by the Nord-Pas de Calais/Dunkerque-Tourcoing ESA in collaboration with those of Cambrai and Valenciennes, opened its doors in September of 2013. Classes are taught on the Dunkirk site.
The FLEA proposes a double training to students: an intensive learning of written and spoken French, 16 hours a week and a preparation for integrating into higher art school curricula, in the form of diverse and complete visual arts workshops (drawing, volume, video, photo, painting, publishing, graphic design, space design, computers).

Le Fresnoy – Studio national des arts contemporains, Tourcoing

about

Opened in October 1997, Le Fresnoy is an establishment for high level audiovisual art training. Alain Fleischer was entrusted with its design, and artistic and pedagogic management. The word “studio” indicates a place of study but also a place of production: the goal of the national Studio is to allow young creators to produce work using professional technical means, under the direction of renowned artists, and in a wide decompartmentalization of different means of expression. The pedagogy of Fresnoy is founded on the production of work (professional technical means and means of production).
The production of work of a professional standard is extended by an ambitious distribution policy: various exhibitions and events succeed one another and explore the issues of contemporary creation. Panorama in particular, presents each autumn the ensemble of the work produced at Fresnoy. The field of work, theoretical and practical, is that of every audiovisual language on traditional film and electronic media (photography, cinema and video) as on those of digital creation.

École supérieure d’art et de design Tours-Angers-Le Mans | Tours

about

The consolidation of the higher schools of fine arts of Tours, Angers and Le Mans into a Public Institution for Cultural Cooperation (EPCC) appears at first as the accomplishment of a pedagogical reform of which one of the objectives is to join European higher education, with the recognition of its qualifications and in particular the Master’s grade DNSEP qualification. The EPCC operates in a system of exchanges and of valorization of the teachings which facilitates the development of research departments.
The three sites, Tours, Angers and Le Mans, form a single establishment implanted in two regions, three departments and two cities which welcomes 550 students and brings together 105 teachers, artists and theoreticians. It is an associated member of PRES (The Center for Research and Higher Education) UNAM (The University of Nantes, Angers and Le Mans) and of the PRES Center – the University of Val de Loire.
The TALM Esba translates its openness and autonomy into trans-disciplinary practices and has developed, as a complementary mission, art education classes open to all.
The EPCC of the TALM Esba is an establishment for higher education awarding qualifications under the Minister for Culture and is part of the network of French Higher Art Schools.

research units

The research platform

Seven research programmes exist and together make up a collaborative research platform whose structure relies both on a Research Unit dealing with independent programmes, and a functional coordination. Two types of programme are developed within this platform: those considered as long term structuring both research, third cycle and initial training, and those considered as short term, lasting between 18 and 24 months.
The research unit groups together long term programmes. It’s operation is ensured by a research co-ordinator whose mission answers to different demands: accompanying the administrative staff and the monitoring of calls for project, valorization, articulation with the 3rd cycle and international development. Both physical and functional, this platform is adapted to research in an art school, as the transfer of an art practice is different to that of knowledge, and the form and temporality of these programmes can vary according to the needs and the options from which they emerge. Essentially the work emanating from the programmes and the research unit is addressed to different professional creative milieus including that of art, which is central. The modes of dissemination that are exhibition, display, demonstration, projection etc… are formally the consequence of the object of research underlying the conditions of social existence of an artistic practice and the issues to be shared.

research programmes

Fabriques de l’art, fabriques de l’histoire (Art factories, History factories)

Scientific manager: Tristan Trémeau, Doctor of Art History, art critic, professor, Epcc Esba TALM – Tours Site, ARBA-ESA in Brussels, Université Paris 1-Sorbonne.
The starting point of this research project, one that immediately raises the hypothesis of joint factories of art and art history, is the situation of a pressing current state of affairs of art practices that, while varied in the mediums used (painting, sculpture, photography, collage, editing, video, performance, installation), still quotes, discusses and articulates the forms, gestures and artistic documents of modernity and the neo avant-gardes, seeming to translate new relationships with the history of art and institutions.
This research is the subject of a partnership agreement between the Esba TALM Epcc, the Grenoble-Valence ESAD, the Cambrai ESA and the Université Paris 1-Sorbonne.

Replace or remake, a work in progress / Production et conservation-restoration of contemporary works of art

Programme Director : Marie-Hélène Breuil
This project intends to question the practice and the deontology of the conservator-restorator when faced with works of contemporary art whose material precariousness implies that all or part of the work is replaced or remade with a view to the exhibition of the work in the maintenance of its function and meaning. The first part of this programme (2012-2013) allowed the study a work of art by Richard Long, White Rock Line, following a request by the Capc Museum of Contemporary Art of Bordeaux, having organized a study day – “White Rock Line, Replace or remake?”, in partnership with the ER[cr]ROS team, on October 11th, 2013.
The goal of this second part is to consider the status of production in the context of conservation-restoration: what place? what issues, what goals, in what case, why and how to newly produce all or part of a work of art? The fact of remaking or replacing is generally allowed in contemporary art, in particular when the materials that make it up become obsolete, but this practice remains insufficiently regulated and documented.

international cooperation

.txt

Published by the École Supérieure d’Art et Design -Grenoble -Valence and B42 publications, under the direction of teachers Annick Lantenois and Samuel Vermeil, .txt is an annual publication dedicated to the study of the diversity of practices and research in graphic design. It is presented as a space for writing proposed to students in the graphic design option of the Grenoble-Valence ÉSAD.
The first issue brings together texts originating in student degree projects (DNAT and DNSEP). Beginning with historical subjects, Sébastien Biniek and Angelica Ruffier initiate a dialogue with the present: Morgan Prudhomme tells the tale of his exchanges with engineers; Adrien Vasquez and Matthieu Meyer – in an interview with Paul Elliman – expose their thinking on graphic design. These texts testify to the commitment of their authors to current issues and notably that of digital culture, technical culture and design culture. Respecting the principal of the editorial line, the graphic design of the first issue was done by students of the Grenoble-Valence ÉSAD.

From—To

An initiative of students from the Valance ÉSAD, From-To is a bi-monthly, online review containing theoretical content that questions issues in design.
It takes the form of exchange and is designed to be read slowly. Envisaged as a tool to accompany students’ practice, From-To aims to be a thoughtful space enriched by contributions from its correspondents.

activities and events

The Valence ÉSAD organizes workshops with guest artists, critics, writers and designers in addition to study trips in France and abroad. It regularly programmes seminars, lectures and presentations of work of all types (exhibitions, performances, concerts, projections,…) and actively collaborates with the cultural structures of the Grenoble conglomeration and its region in the organization of events. These events, whose initial purpose is one of pedagogy, are opportunities to further anchor the school in the professional network of contemporary art and to open it out to the population of the City of Valence and the region.
The Grenoble -Valence ÉSAD is part of the network formed by the four higher schools of art in the Rhone-Alpes region. In this capacity it favors inter-school pedagogical projects and the professional insertion of its graduates.

post-curricular or extracurricular activities

Classes for children, adolescents and adults: an introduction to visual arts, drawing, life model, painting, volume, sculpture, engraving, infography, multimedia.

international cooperation

In the framework of the organization of studies, the eighth semester is dedicated to international mobility. Each student is invited to travel abroad and face the demands of the world through either a study trip, or an internship in a professional structure.
The Grenoble ÉSAD participates in the ERASMUS programme. Numerous partnerships with international higher educational establishments have been set up. Financial support is provided to students through different grants and scholarships: Erasmus, Explora’sup from the Rhone-Alpes region and OFAJ -the Franco-German youth office.
Certain of the Grenoble -Valence ÉSAD partner establishments: University of the arts, Central St Martin, London; Kingston University—Kingston upon Thames; LUCA—School of Arts, Gand ; ERG/School of Graphic Research, Brussels ; The National Higher School of Visual Arts of la Cambre , Brussels ; Muthesius Kunsthochschule, Kiel ; Stuttgart State Academy of Art and Design ; Weissensee Berlin ; HEAD – Higher School of Art and Design, Geneva; National University of Arts, Bucharest ; Facultad de Bellas Artes de Valencia (Polytechnic University) ; Srishti School of Art, Design and Technology, Bangalore ; Concordia University, Montreal ; PUC Campinas, Brazil.

Valenciennes

École Supérieure d’Art et de Design de Valenciennes

about

The Ecole Supérieure d’Art et de Design of Valenciennes, is a Public Institution for Cultural Cooperation (EPCC). The school proposes two curricula leading to a DNAP and a DNSEP in the context of the Art and Design option.
The pedagogical project of the ESAD is based on the co-existence of the Art and Space Design options. It is characterized by their interlinking in an establishment that is accessible on a human scale (150 students), encouraging the organization of proximity, in addition to common teaching platforms. This exchange integrates the leveling of hierarchy in these fields and opts for a mutual questioning of skills, and of the limits of the singularities and confluences.
In the Art option the pedagogy that has been developed around the ensemble of mediums questions visual production and its contextualization, both as a tangible object in the world and the result of an attitude. It is also developed through a thinking on production, its archiving and its review. It questions the advent of a digital culture that has carried the reproducibility of the work of art to its extreme, and makes digital one of the new mediums of the work of art.
The Design option is dedicated to Space Design that attaches importance to designing outside spaces, urban and/or landscapes, interior or domestic spaces and set design. Under the title “situation design”, the pedagogy insists on the capacity of the designer to integrate different information and restrictions to answer each time to a unique context and a unique project. The pedagogy is also seen as a dynamic that explores the relationships between the following three approaches: design and society, design and construction, design and representation.
