[Open Call] EHESS at Camargo program — 2023 edition

Application Deadline: April 15 (midnight - Paris time)

The French School of Advanced Studies in the Social Sciences (EHESS) and the Camargo Foundation are joining forces for the third year with the residency program EHESS at Camargo, which offers a one-month residency at the Camargo Foundation for an artist and a scholar in social sciences. The aims of the program are to stimulate relations and connections between scholars and artists, and to develop projects at the intersection of social sciences and all artistic disciplines with the goal of a joint production.

A year ago, the Camargo Foundation launched an archival project aiming to preserve Camargo's history and legacy.
Since then, we have collected some remarkable material, which illuminates the impact of Camargo on residents' personal and professional lives while deepening our understanding of the organization’s history and legacy.
Last summer, a new collaboration was launched with curator Jean Pierre Moulères, Aix Marseille University/Telemme Laboratory, and the National School of Photography in Arles (ENSP).


• Aix-Marseille University (AMU) is the largest multidisciplinary French-speaking university in France, with 80,000 students and nearly 8,000 staff on five large campuses, which meet international standards. The university is present in 9 cities in 4 departments of the Southern Region.

• The ENSP is a higher education institution under the supervision of the French Ministry of Culture, located in Arles in the south of France, a city renowned for its photographic culture.

As a result, a group of students from both schools coordinated by scholars and Camargo’s staff have started working on a workshop project, which will take place in March. At Camargo, they will work together on documenting the memory and testimonies of Cassis’ community.
