Bruno Latour

Philosopher, anthropologist, and sociologist of science

(Beaune, France, 1947) 

Well known for his teaching activity in the field of science, technology, and society (STS), and as being one of the founders of the Actor-network theory, he is Associate Emeritus Professor at Medialab and the political arts programme (SPEAP) at "Sciences Po" in Paris. He has also taught at the London School of Economics and in the Department of the History of Science at Harvard University. His main area of research is the dichotomy between nature and society. He has written and edited more than twenty books, notable among which are Nunca fuimos modernos (Siglo XXI, 1993; in English, We Have Never Been Modern), La vida en el laboratorio (Alianza, 1995; in English, Laboratory Life), La esperanza de Pandora (Gedisa, 2001; Pandora’s Hope) and, more recently, Cara a cara con el planeta (Siglo XXI, 2017; in English, Facing Gala) and Dónde aterrizar (Taurus, 2018; in English, Down to Earth). From the early 2000s, he has curated several highly successful art exhibitions, including Iconoclash (2002) and Making Things Public (2005) in the Zentrum für Kunst und Medientechnologie de Karlsruhe (ZKM). He has also recently presented the exhibition Critical Zones (2020) in the same centre and, at present, is working with Martin Guinard, curator of the Taipei Biennale 2020.
