Art history

Laura Karp Lugo has a doctorate in art history from the Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne. She has been a lecturer at the Université de Lorraine since 2020, and has worked as a researcher at various institutions including the Institut national d'histoire de l'art (Paris), the Universidad Nacional de Tres de Febrero (Buenos Aires), the German Centre for the History of Art (Paris), and the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (Munich).

Conducted as part of the ERC project 'Relocating Modernism: Global Metropolises, Modern Art and Exile' (METROMOD), from 2017 to 2023, her research contributes to a global and connected history of art from a Latin American perspective at the intersection of artistic creation and exile. In addition to numerous articles published in France and abroad, she is the co-editor of two books that take a resolutely global approach to these issues: Arrival Cities. Migrating Artists and New Metropolitan Topographies in the 20th Century (Leuven University Press, 2020) and Urban Exile: Theories, Methods, Research Practices (London, Intellect, 2023).

Winner of the Prix du Musée d'Orsay, her thesis will be published in 2024 by Éditions de la Sorbonne.
