    IMG - Emmanuel Guy

    Emmanuel Guy’s research focuses on the history of the 20th-century avant-garde and counterculture in the arts, literature, architecture and politics, collage and sampling practices in the visual arts and music, and strategic history and theory. He graduated from the Ecole Normale Supérieure, Paris, in 2007, and obtained his Agrégation de Lettres Modernes the same year. Emmanuel curated, among other exhibitions, the “Guy Debord. Un Art de la Guerre” exhibition at the Bibliothèque nationale de France in 2013. He has also published numerous articles and books on Guy Debord and the Internationale Situationniste; upcoming publications include Emmanuel Guy and Laurence Le Bras, Reading Debord (Montreuil, L'Échappée, 2016). 

    Emmanuel has taught in the Métiers du texte et de l’image Master's Program at Université Sorbonne Paris Cité. From 2009 to 2011, he co-organized with Sophie Cras (Maître de conférence, Université Panthéon-Sorbonne) the seminar "1955-1965: sources and methods" at the Ecole Normale Supérieure, where they gathered a wide range of young researchers and scholars from various disciplines to discuss the history and historiography of the long sixties. Following the same research methodology, they are currently organizing a monthly seminar on the arts in the 1980s at Parsons Paris.
