Call for projects from the Musée Départemental Albert-Kahn

Each year, the Musée Départemental Albert-Kahn offers a creative residency in the emblematic Salle des Plaques.


Created by Albert Kahn, a philanthropic banker, between 1909 and 1931, the "Archives de la Planète " collection brings together the work of a dozen operators sent to some fifty countries. The collection is housed in the "Salle des Plaques" in Boulogne-Billancourt.


The aim of this 6-month residency is to enable an artist to produce an original work in connection with the museum's collections, exploring the notion of archiving and taking a fresh look at the collections. The work will then be exhibited at the museum from November 2024 to March 2025.


At the start of the residency, the selected artist will benefit from an immersive week with museum professionals, as well as a series of appointments to immerse him/herself in the collections.


To apply, you must submit :

  • An illustrated statement of intent, taking into account the link with the collections and the specificities of the museum space, and specifying the forms of public awareness envisaged;
  • A 10-month schedule (6 months of immersion and 4 months of execution);
  • A technical specification sheet listing the equipment needed to produce and distribute the work;
  • A presentation of your existing production and your artistic approach;
  • An estimate.


Applications are open until Monday February 19, 2024 at 6pm.
