Jules Ramage

Born in 1987 in Vélizy-Villacoublay (France)

Jules Ramage (1987, France) is a visual artist and researcher. Associated with the CERILAC laboratory at the University of Paris, he is also a member of the Cité du Genre, interdisciplinary research institute in gender studies. He explores the complex relationships of power at play in disciplinary and institutional structures.

Since 2013, he has conducted in-depth fieldwork in the prison space, where he implements collaborative protocols with inmates as well as prison guards. His approach to creation focuses on the co-construction of knowledge and practices and our capacity to inhabit spaces. Aware of the ethical and legal limits specific to his field and the status of his collaborators, he works in the logic of expanded cinema, by producing films but also, when this is impossible, by activating his content through installations, photography, editorial objects, and performance.

His work has been exhibited in France, the United States, Argentina, England, Spain, and Germany.
