Dr. François Maheu studied art history at the Catholic University of Louvain (UCL). His thesis « L’erreur photographique comme outil d’analyse des stratégies artistiques dans les œuvres des artistes conceptuels » considers the photographic error as an operational tool of analysis able to give an original meaning to both the artistic production and the nature of the medium. Due to a study of a significant part of conceptual art, the photographic error turned out to be an engine of artistic production in terms of aesthetic contest and a key of interpretation of conceptual work. Aggregated for upper secondary education (AESS), François Maheu is scientific collaborator of the Institut des Civilisations, Arts et Lettres (INCAL). His fields of interest are photography theory, contemporary art, conceptual art, and visual culture.
