Artists and Curators as Authors – Competitors, Collaborators, or Team-workers? is the first book of the Small Run Books series, which treats the issues of contemporary curatorial practice and its theoretical rendition.
The book will be presented on May 31 at 6PM in the UVK hall at Mystetskiy Arsenal (Kyiv, Ukraine)
The presentation will feature Kseniia Malykh and Oleksandr Solovyov, art critics and curators. Kateryna Nosko will moderate the discussion.
The book comprises three texts by Dorothee Richter, a researcher of curatorship, Professor of University of Reading (United Kingdom) and the head of PhD program at Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK).
The texts were translated by Iaroslava Strikha and Tetyana Rodionova.
Dorothee Richter has edited 33 issues of the independent international journal ONCURATING, which she had established both in electronic and printed version. Also, together with young curators, the researcher has realised the program called Curate Your Context, shot a movie Flux Us Now! Fluxus Explored with a Camera, and gathered an archive consisting of more than 50 video-interviews with contemporary curators, including Peter Weibel, Hans-Ulrich Obrist, Stella Rollig, and others.
