Alain-Martin Richard is a performer, publisher, critic, essayist, and curator. In his multidisciplinary practice, he focuses on the questions of art in society and art as poetic action. He uses a “dialogue-action” strategy, in which each action is seen in phase with the place where it takes place and the people who live there. His projects are deployed on several levels of reality, as seen in L’Atopie textuelle est une cause qui se perd (2000); Le chemin pour Rosa (2006); Le bloc que j’habite (2014). He is an active member of the collective Les Causes perdues and of Folie/Culture.
