Council's website is currently under construction.

You are on the home page of Council’s inquiries. The inquiries aim to provide, by means of the arts, more complex and effective descriptions of societal issues.
Formulated around discussions with actors in civil society, these issues are honed through fieldwork and the constitution of a pluridisciplinary team. After this initial stage, “researchers” meet to participate in seminars, workshops and other situations, intended to foster a composition between their various practices. The inquiries are made public via an online essay accompanied by various events and exhibitions, and disseminated through artistic, scholarly, scientific and activist networks. These inquiries also give rise to artistic productions which would otherwise not come into being.
