Noémie Etienne

Noémie Etienne lives and works in Geneva (CH) and Paris (FR). She teaches art history at Geneva University and is presently preparing a PhD on the restoration of late-18th century paintings in collaboration with Paris I University, Pantheon-Sorbonne. Her research aims at redefining the conception of artworks considering them as works in progress, which are in perpetual evolution. In 2008-2009, she received a grant from the Swiss National Science Foundation. Her research has been published in various art journals and books. In parallel to her academic activities, she collaborates with museums as well as artists, with a focus on the notions of art, representation and feminism between past and present. Since 2007, she has been a founding member of Eternal Tour association.

Knowledge table

A research project is generally, in a classical sense, a project, which tends to verify hypotheses by experience and experimentation. Eternal Tour defines itself as a research project that continuously evolves with experience, bringing together artists and academics. However, what are the different forms of knowledge today? Where and how is contemporary thought produced? Should it necessarily be translated in words? Can it be expressed by the body or by movement? In a roundtable inviting the public and all the participants of Eternal Tour, Donatella Bernardi, Noémie Etienne and Nadia Radwan propose a reflection on knowledge production and its involvement, as well as on the methodological fundaments of Eternal Tour during its 2010 edition in Jerusalem and Ramallah.
