Agencements/ Agencies

Agencements is a journal in Social Sciences made IN COMMON by researchers in the humanities and social sciences.


What they have to say:

"There are different manners to find ones’ place in the magazine. »

“The magazine as a tool for working together…for the pleasure of exchanging during the work on the articles in particular.”

“The journal as an intervention tool – publishing articles on realities that would not appear without the journal.”

“The magazine as a mutual school to collectively learn writings, readings.

A paper instrument that counts and makes a difference in our worlds. »


In  March 2022,  extrapole joins the Agencements magazine team which has just published its seventh issue!

Why Agencements? Why a paper magazine in Social Sciences? What is the magazine responding to?


"Agencements interrogates the diversity of experiments undertaken today in society, in a critical rapport with the dominant logics, whether these experiments concern the fields of art, politics, social issues, architecture or care services, and the list stops not there. Agencements tends towards contributing to the renewal of critical engagement by taking interest in the initiatives engaged by activists or professionals aiming at bringing about new forms of life and activity that are more egalitarian, autonomous and collective. These experiments involve practices of co-creation and cooperation; experiments that express a power of citizen action, developed as closely as possible to the realities of life. They are born on a variety of terrains: during occupations (brownfields and wasteland, designated development areas), within the framework of communities of practice and experience (spaces where the experience of users, patients or yet inhabitants are shared), on a material level (cooperatives, common gardens, short circuits...) as well as immaterial (free software, collaborative knowledge, alternative education...). They reflect a strong desire to create commonality and to create together and togethers in living areas, in the workplace and on the Internet. »

The Prusik knot

sharing the investigation

In March 2017 Agnès Henry (extrapole) leads, in collaboration with Emmanuelle Segura, a survey on the evolution of artistic and cultural action, taking as a field of observation three Grenoble institutions: the CCN2, the Magasin des horizons, and the CDC Le pacifique.

In July 2018, as part of this investigation, the institutions adopted the name Trilogy.

In October 2018, the author Emilie Notéris is invited to produce a fiction based on this enquiry."

In 2021, The knot of Prusik was published,

a book to be read and discussed in all directions!

4th cover :  

"Faced with the possibility of the emergence of the possible, Art Institutions must face the structural presence of the impossible.

Artistic Institutions should be empowered to deal with the arising of the impossible."

Émilie Notéris is a text worker, in the sense that she has put this text to work at the service of the artistic institutions that have contacted her and made her the proposal to write, based on their work experiences and the pooling of their skills and desires.
