Camargo & EHESS 2023 #4

The École des hautes études en sciences sociales (EHESS) and the Camargo Foundation. Deadline: March 31, 2023.

For the fourth consecutive year, the École des hautes études en sciences sociales (EHESS) and the Camargo Foundation are joining forces to offer two residency grants at the Camargo Foundation for an artist and a researcher in the social sciences.

This system aims to stimulate relations and exchanges between researchers and artists for the development of projects at the interface between the social sciences and all fields of the arts with a view to joint production. He participates in this reflection on the mutual enrichments resulting from the dialogue between creation and research recently reinforced by the CRESS program - Création recherche en sciences sociales.

In the presentation of their proposals, candidates must be concerned to show, from their research or their career, the interest they have in interdisciplinary crossings and exchanges between the social sciences and the arts.

The residencies, lasting a total of four weeks (possibility to make one or two stays), will take place between November 2023 and November 2024. The dates will be set according to the availability of the teams and the Camargo Foundation.

The researcher must belong to a laboratory whose supervision is the EHESS. In order to be eligible, he/she must be attached to the EHESS at the time of application and during the residency. The artist must be the main designer of a new work or project. To be eligible, the artist must reside abroad.

Support for the artist includes an allowance equivalent to one month as part of the visiting foreign professor's programme (between 3700 and 4000 euros depending on the country of origin for 28 days). For the EHESS researcher, it includes reimbursement of residency-related expenses (transport if applicable, per diem).

The reception of the selected team in Camargo provides for the provision of an apartment with a kitchen and bathroom equipped during the month of residence. Due to its geographical location facing the sea and its relationship to the surrounding landscape, Camargo offers a setting conducive to exchanges, research, contemplation and reflection. Workspaces include a library, art workshop and music creation workshop (subject to availability), open-air theatre, as well as shared informal spaces such as terraces and gardens.

Deadline for applications: 31 March 2023.
