Since 2007, the editorial policy by the CAPC, the museum of contemporary art in Bordeaux, has focused on creating reference monographs to fill a gap in the French and international editorial landscape. The Présence Panchounette
(2010), and Jean-Luc Blanc
(2009) catalogues are thus the first retrospective studies on the careers of the artists. The Heimo Zobernig
catalogue (2010) comprises the first French-language study on the work of the Austrian artist. The creation of catalogues linked to group exhibitions is justified by the notion of in-depth scientific works (Insiders
, 2010), or of unique editorial items. Each work has been subject to co-edition to ensure a wider circulation.
