What is TextWork ?

By soliciting monographic studies that are sometimes the first of that scale for the artists, the Fondation Pernod Ricard initiates new encounters between artists and authors. This promotes the international circulation of work by the French art scene, and makes the bet that these conversations will continue well beyond the text. Available in French and English, these thoroughly documented texts are also distributed on international critical platforms. This editorial project provides a forum for ambitious art criticism, and is part of the Fondation Pernod Ricard’s policy of supporting the French scene. It is conceived with support from the Ministry of Culture. ISSN 2726-9949

Editorial Committee

The project is supported by a consultative editorial committee consisting of Virginie Bobin, Alice Dusapin and Elodie Royer. Pauline Autet is the project’s editorial coordinator.

Former members of the Editorial Commitee: François Aubart, Mélanie Bouteloup, Thomas Boutoux, Marie Canet.
