הרצאה: Ambivalences of Curatorial Hospitality // Beatrice von Bismarck
Ambivalences of Curatorial Hospitality // a lecture by Dr. Prof. Beatrice von Bismarck
Art History, Visual Culture and Cultures of the Curatorial
Academy of Fine Arts Leipzig
The conditions within the curatorial field are laid out in the dispositif of hospitality. A curatorial situation implies invitations, receives, welcomes, and brings people and things together for a limited period of time. Inscribed in it are the logics of inclusion and exclusion, the preconditions, rights, and rules for the distribution of resources, such as space, time, financial resources, or attention. Recognition, care and protection are the goods at stake here. In this immanently ethically determined dispositif, a contradictoriness comes to bear: the call for an inclusive, generous, and responsible procedure is deeply ambivalent with the asymmetry-generating effects attached to it, and this from a political perspective as well as from a social and economic one. The lecture will address some of these ambivalences becoming operative in curatorial relations.
Beatrice von Bismarck teaches art history, visual culture and cultures of the curatorial at the Academy of Fine Arts (Hochschule für Grafik und Buchkunst) Leipzig. She worked as a curator of the department of 20th-century art at Städel Museum, Frankfurt, was co-founder and co-director of the Kunstraum der Universität Lüneburg, initiator of the M.A. Program Cultures of the Curatorial and co-directed the itinerant TRANScuratorial Academy (Berlin, Mumbai, Phnom Penh 2017-2018). Recent publications include "Archives on Show. Revoicing, Shapeshifting, Displacing - A Curatorial Glossary”, 2022 (Archive Books, Berlin) (ed.), “Broken Relations: Infrastructure, Aesthetics, and Critique”, 2022 (Spector Books, Leipzig) (co-ed. with Martin Beck, Sabeth Buchmann, and Ilse Lafer) and the monograph, "The Curatorial Condition", 2022 (Sternberg Press, London).
