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 recently co-curated and co-edited with Bruno Latour the exhibition and catalogue Reset Modernity! (2016, ZKM | Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe / MIT Press). He is now Research Associate at the médialab, working on digital social art history.
