Full Description
Over the period of twelve months, between May 2017 and 2018, Polish-born curator and critic Anda Rottenberg wrote a series of fictitious letters to legendary curator and writer Harald Szeemann (1933-2005). In these pieces, Rottenberg analyses the art and nature of curating and reveals references and relations in the history of art. She questions female artistic positions both in the Eastern and Western Europe and so encourages new individual readings of them. Her letters express a unique rhetoric that take up questions and polemic judgements to amalgamate individual opinion and objective knowledge into a personal history. This is the first publication of the much acclaimed new Muzeum Susch, an initiative of the Polish entrepreneur and art collector Grazyna Kulczyk and her Art Stations Foundation CH.
