Collective for curating, production and critique. Founded in 2006 by Thierry Fournier (artist), Gérald Gauguier (author), Steven Hearn (producer), Marie Husson (artist), Myriam Marzouki (author and director), Daniel Migairou (producer), Isabelle Pellegrini (author), Valérie Pihet (Sciences Po / École des Arts Politiques) and Jean-François Robardet (artist).

This collective project was dedicated to production, curating and critique, exploring the transferts between visual arts, performing arts and writing. In 2007, Écholalie invited five artists, authors and researchers for a series of conferences: Miguel Benasayag (philosopher and psychoanalyst), Samuel Bianchini (artist), Céline Flécheux (philosopher), Per Hüttner (artist) and Bruno Latour (philosopher, anthropologist and sociologist).
