Contemporary Art and its Institutional Dilemmas

The joint venture between curatorial practice and institutional critique is volatile. Desires to question the dominant culture and its modes of representation and methods of working sometimes facilitate art and its operations, sometimes it complicates them. I will discuss case studies in which I have myself been involved. For instance the Christine Borland retrospective at Kunstverein München; the collective exhibition Totally Motivated: A Socio-Cultural Maneouver at the same place; Who Makes and Owns Your Work at IASPIS in Stockholm and The Greenroom: Reconsidering the Documentary and Contemporary Art at CCS Bard.

Maria Lind is Director of the graduate program at Bard College’s Center for Curatorial Studies, she had held the position of Artistic Director of IASPIS in Stockholm. Between 2001 and 2004 she was Director of the Munich Kunstverein. Previous to that she was Curator at Moderna Museet in Stockholm (from 1997-2001) and in 1998 she was Co-Curator of Manifesta 2, Europe’s nomadic biennale of contemporary art.
