Sacha Léopold and François Havegeer have worked together as syndicat since 2012.
Their cross-disciplinary practice, taking in self-initiated projects as well as design-based commissions, addresses issues of originality, reproduction, and reproducibility in the context of art today, using their expansive knowledge of printing and manufacturing techniques whether designing books, creating visual identities, or curating exhibitions.
Syndicat has actively collaborated with contemporary artists and art centers to create one-of-a-kind visual identity programs, publications, monographs, and artists’ books, leading in 2015 to the creation of Empire, their own publishing imprint and Revue Faire: a bi-monthly printed graphic design magazine.
Alongside their design activities, they have curated several exhibitions exploring printing techniques process.
