Igor Galligo is initially trained in the humanities, leading to four masters degrees: contemporary philosophy, visual arts and aesthetics at the University of Paris 1 Sorbonne, and political science at the École des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales. Since the end of 2012, he has been conducting research on ecology of attention, design of attention and relationships between attention and aesthetic experience. In 2013, he joined the Reflective Interaction program at EnsadLab, the research laboratory of the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs. He also became an associated researcher at GERPHAU, a research center in architecture and urbanism, attached to the ENSPLV. In 2015, he became a research officer for the Ministère de la Culture et de la Communication à la Direction de la Recherche, de l'Enseignement Supérieur et de la Technologie. From 2013 to 2015, he directed three international seminars with Bernard Stiegler at Centre Pompidou in Paris on the transformation of attentional capacities in a digital milieu and participated in the creation of the chair of contributory research, led by Bernard Stiegler, on the territory of Plaine Commune. In 2017, he was an associate researcher at the Institute of Experimental Design and Media Cultures, in Basel. In 2018, he founded NOODESIGN, a think tank on the design of mind operations. In 2019, under the supervision of Yves Citton and within the EUR ArTeC, he began working towards obtaining his PhD on the themes of Automedias, contributory media and post-truth. In 2021, he was appointed associate researcher at the COSTECH laboratory, at the Université Technologique de Compiègne. From april 2022, he is a researcher in residence at the Berlin Open Lab, a project associating the Technische Universität Berlin (ECDF) and the Weizenbaum Institute, directed by Michelle Christensen and Florian Conradi. In 2022, he founded AUTOMEDIAS.ORG, a platform that brings together researchers, software developers, and political actors from the automedia world, notably from the Gilets Jaunes movement. From August 2022 to July 2023, he is a Visiting Scholar at the University of California, Berkeley (USA), sponsored by the Networking Ecologically Smart Territories program. Attached to the Rhetoric department at UC Berkeley and under the supervision of David Bates, he develops his reflection on automedia and the contribution of critical digital rhetoric to elaborate different approaches from surveillance capitalism to the problems of the so-called “Post-Truth”. This led him to collaborate with several research centers at UC Berkeley including the Center for Science, Technology, Medicine and Society; the Social Science Matrix and the Jacob Institute for Design Innovation. In autumn 2023, he is once again a researcher in residence at the Berlin Open Lab, thanks to a DAAD grant. Since March 2024, he has been a guest researcher in “The Disruptive Condition" program at the University of Leuphana, Luneburg, under the direction of Erich Hörl.
