The first EPCAF Paris Colloquium will take place on Tuesday, June 14 at Parsons Paris – The New School. It will be the opportunity to meet, present some forthcoming publications in the EPCAF book series, and confer about current and future EPCAF initiatives.

We are particularly delighted that Fred Forest will be participating to a roundtable on what will be the first book in English on the Sociological Art Collective. The editors, Maud Jacquin and Stéphanie C. Jeanjean, have compiled new contextual and analytical essays and collected a wide range of primary sources (most translated into English for the first time), along with rare visual documentation of the Collective’s actions drawn from the artists’ archives.
