He has lectured and exhibited in France (incl. Palais de Tokyo, Collège de France, Cerisy-la-Salle, National Centre for Space Studies, Musée des Abattoirs, Musée d'art moderne de Lille), Portugal (Institut Français), Brazil, USA (Duke University), UK, Singapore, Hungary, Madeira, Lithuania, Germany...
