Thibault Boulvain defended his dissertation in 2017 at the University of Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne on visual representations of HIV-positive status and AIDS in Europe and the United States between 1981 and 1997. The resulting book, L'art en sida. 1981-1997, was published in June 2021 by Presses du réel (collection "Œuvres en sociétés").
While continuing his research on this question, and more broadly on visual representations of the disease in history, Thibault Boulvain is currently exploring a new field of research: "The Mediterranean effect in the visual arts from the 1950s to the present. He is preparing an exhibition on the subject, to be held at the Museum of European and Mediterranean Civilizations in 2025.
