Art, culture and society

The third major mission of the College of Humanities and Social Sciences is to serve as a bridge between scientists, intelligentsia, artists and the general public.

To do this, the College relies on the EPFL Pavilions team, which produces and presents ambitious exhibitions in its Pavilions A and B; on the CDH-Culture, which ensures a varied artistic program as well as a THEMA inviting the public to question itself on an annual theme and a program of artists in residence on campus.

The CDH-Culture also manages a platform for competitions to win tickets for shows and is responsible for preserving and promoting the fixed works of art on campus, most of which resonate with the architecture of the buildings.
