Interaction with ministries and partners

As a lead structure for Labex CAP between 2011 and 2020, HiCSA is called upon to work with some highly prestigious institutions operating within that centre of research excellence. But in addition to the frequent discussions and research carried out jointly with them, as detailed elsewhere, there is a wide range of collaboration (conferences, publications, exhibitions, etc.) with both national and international institutions and bodies.

Nationally, HiCSA has worked with a variety of non-profits (university Cinémathèque, Réforme Humanisme, Renaissance, Les Trois Lumières and the French association of sociology) and learned societies (such as the Société Française d’Étude du Seizième Siècle, and the Société Française de Photographie and its journal Études Photographiques). Academically, we collaborate with many universities and graduate schools both in Ile-de-France region (Paris 4, Paris 8 Vincennes-Saint-Denis, Paris Est-Créteil, Paris Est-Marne-La-Vallée, Sciences Po, École d’Architecture de Belleville, etc.) and throughout France (Aix-Marseille, Bordeaux 3, ESAD Grenoble-Valence, Lille 3, ESBA Tours Angers Le Mans, etc.). Labex CAP itself comprises major museums, but HiCSA also has relations with others such as the Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature and the Musée du Jeu de Paume. This non-exhaustive list of relations includes events held jointly with national and departmental archives, the Direction Générale du Patrimoine, committees of the Ministry of Culture, European cultural institutes and research centres in Paris and also the centres of research excellence Labex EHNE and Labex Resmed.

Internationally, partnerships have been formed with documentation and research centres (e.g. Balkan Documentary Center, Sofia, and Centre Marc Bloch, Berlin), universities and higher education establishments, museums and such institutions as the Terra Foundation for American Art. The University of Paris 1 itself has exchange agreements with Columbia University (us), Bielefeld, Humboldt- Universität Berlin, Kunstakademie Münster (de), Louvain La Neuve (be), Leiden (nl), Bologna (it), School of Architecture, Tianjin University (cn). Others include Università degli Studie del Piemonte, Polytechnic University of Milan (it), Archivio del Moderno, École Polytechnique Fédérale, Lausanne, Haute École d’Art et de Design (Head), Geneva (ch) and Université d'Abomey-Calavi (bj). Partner museums include the Tate Gallery (uk) and the Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art (es).
