Seminar: Prendre le Parti des Choses

March 29 and June 20, 2018

The project “Prendre le parti des choses. Hybrid publications on the creative process” is based on an unprecedented articulation between the humanities and social sciences as well as design. It is the result of innovative forms of writing that involve interactive digital media to describe creation. This project offers a material and processual approach of creation and is based on the experimentation of forms of publication. This project aims to bring together researchers in the humanities and social sciences (EHESS and EnsadLab) with art and design researchers (EnsadLab). The project is articulated around the production of a digital book created for the exhibition “Typoéticatrac. Les mots pour le faire” of the graphic designer Pierre Di Sciullo (curator Francesca Cozzolino) and around a seminar at EnsAD and at EHESS which took place in March and June 2018.

Project developed by Francesca Cozzolino (teacher-researcher) with the collaboration of Pierre Olivier Dittmar (university lecturer, EHESS), supported by IRIS PSL “Création, cognition et société”.

The team: Samuel Bianchini (EnsadLab), Francesca Cozzolino (EnsadLab/Lesc), Pierre-Olivier Dittmar (EHESS), Thomas Golsenne (Université de Lille3), Lucile Haute (Université de Nîmes/EnsadLab), Quentin Juhel (student researcher at EnsadLab), Sophie Krier (UCR/EnsadLab), Benoît Verjat (EnsadLab/Esa de Nancy), Sylvie Tissot (research & creation engineer, associated to EnsadLab).

In collaboration with Centre d’art le Bel Ordinaire and Art Book Magazine
