My interest is directed towards the question of bodily subjectivity, drawing from ressources in thinkers such as Aron Gurwitsch, Maurice Merleau-Ponty, Jan Patocka, Michel Foucault and Giorgio Agamben. I have published a few articles on Merleau-Ponty's aesthetics, trying to bring his phenomenology in dialogue with contemporary artists. Merleau-Ponty himself was in constant dialogue with his contemporaries, so why not try the same strategy today. My doctorate was written under the direction of Renaud Barbaras (Paris 1) and is going to be published in G. Olms in 2009; its title is "Parole et subjectivité. Recherches sur la phénoménologie de l'expression".
