Virginie Bobin

Virginie Bobin works at the crossroads between research, curatorial and editorial practices, pedagogy and translation.

In 2018, she started a practice-based research project on the political and affective stakes of translation, within the framework of the PhD in Practice program in Artistic Research at the Akademie der bildenden Künste (Vienna). In parallel, she co-founded with Victorine Grataloup the non-profit organization QALQALAH قلقلة , a platform for artistic exchanges, research and translations; and began a collaboration with artist Mercedes Azpilicueta, which led to three exhibitions in CentroCentro (Madrid), Museion (Bolzano) and CAC Brétigny in 2019-2021.

Until 2018, she was Head of Programs at Villa Vassilieff, a center for art, research and residencies, which she co-founded in 2016. Previously, she worked for Bétonsalon – Center for Art and Research, Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art (Rotterdam), Manifesta Journal, Les Laboratoires d’Aubervilliers and Performa, the New York Biennial for Performing Arts. Her independent curatorial projects have been hosted internationally, in such institutions as MoMA PS1, e-flux space and Tabakalera, and her texts have been published in international exhibition catalogues and magazines. Editorial projects include Composing Differences (Les Presses du Réel, 2015) and Re-publications (co-edited with Mathilde Villeneuve, Archive Books, 2015).
