Agathe Boulanger

Artist and psychiatric nurse

Agathe Boulanger (b. 1983, lives in Paris) is an artist and a psychiatric nurse who works with teenagers. Together with other carers, she founded a photography workshop at the Centre Intersectoriel d’Accueil Pour Adolescents (CIAPA) in Paris, a care center for teenagers. The magazine Accroc, collectively conceived, extends this project in print.

Together with Jules Lagrange and Signe Frederiksen, Agathe Boulanger co-authored the book Ce que Laurence Rassel nous fait faire, a dialogue with Belgian curator Laurence Rassel which explores the possible applications of institutional psychotherapy in contemporary art organizations. She is currently continuing this research through a series of radio broadcasts on Duuu Radio and through public readings.
