Jean-Luc Moulène studied Aesthetics and Sciences of Art at the Sorbonne University in Paris, France, where he continues to live and work. Since the early 1980s, he has produced a vast repertoire of work grounded in a critical exploration of authorship, as well as an engagement with notions of autonomy, immanence and anarchic politics.

Opus + One at Dia:Beacon, New York (2012) is the first comprehensive solo exhibition of Moulène’s work in North America. Jean-Luc Moulène at Modern Art Oxford was on view in Oxford, UK (2012).
