Christophe Leclercq worked as project manager from 2004 to 2010 at CITU, an interdisciplinary research laboratory at Paris 8 and Paris 1 Universities. For 5 years, he was in charge of matching artists and engineers/programmers, and of managing their subsequent collaborations, ensuring the development of experimental projects in art and heritage and the promotion and diffusion of their research via exhibitions, workshops, lectures and conferences. His research is based, in large part, on the digital archives of art history and other external art projects (i.e E.A.T. Datascape). He also collaborated with Anarchive on a series of DVD-Roms, books and internet resources designed to enable exploration of an artist’s overall oeuvre via diverse archival material.He has particularly acted as project manager of the ERC AIME Project (‘An Inquiry into Modes of Existence’), led by Bruno Latour from 2011 to 2015. He co-curated and co-edited with Bruno Latour the exhibition and catalogueReset Modernity!(2016, ZKM | Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe / MIT Press). After having collaborated on the État de l'Art project (2016-2018), he is working on the definition of a digital social art history and an environmental approach to art that focuses on the life of the works as well as the various actors associated with them. He is currently an associate researcher at the medialab, a teacher in art history and digital heritage at the École du Louvre, and a professor of history and art theory at the École supérieure d'art et de design de Valenciennes.
