Director, Art and Design History and Theory
Emmanuel Guy’s research focuses on the history of 20th century avant-garde and counterculture in the arts, literature, architecture and politics, collage and sampling practices in the visual arts and music, as well as strategic history and theory. He graduated from the Ecole Normale Supérieure, Paris, in 2007, and obtained his Agrégation de Lettres Modernes that same year. Emmanuel curated the “Guy Debord. Un Art de la Guerre” exhibition and has published articles and books on Guy Debord and the the Internationale Situationniste.
Emmanuel has taught within the “Métiers du texte et de l’image” Master Program at Université Paris 13-Villetaneuse. From 2009 to 2011, he also co-organised with Sophie Cras a “1955-1965 : sources and methods” seminar at the Ecole Normale Supérieure, where he gathered a wide range of young researchers and scholars from various disciplines to discuss the history and historiography of the long Sixties.
