CULTURES OF THE CURATORIAL 3: HOSPITALITY: HOSTING RELATIONS IN EXHIBITIONS. Ed. by Beatrice von Bismarck et al. Academy of Visual Arts, Leipzig, 2017. Published by Sternberg Press, Berlin. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 272 pp. 20 x 12 cm. ISBN 9783956790898 In English.
Publisher's description: Every curated encounter involves hospitality, with curators in the role of host and the invited -- artists, audiences and even exhibits -- as guests. The economy of this hospitality -- the space, time and money as well as attention, power and recognition involved in inviting, offering, welcoming, attending, reciprocating and its opposite, the refusal, exclusion and control that exhibitions can generate -- is the subject of the third volume in this highly respected and collected series from the Academy of Visual Arts Liepzig. Fifteen contributors including curator-critics Maja Ciric, Lorenzo Fusi, Wiebke Gronemeyer, Anthony Huberman and theorist-performative researcher Erik Hagoort discuss how the asymmetries and dependencies of these roles continuously change in relation to one another, ponder how the aesthetic, social, political and economic ramifications are paradigmatic of generosity within the cultural field, and consider ambivalent or problematic interdependencies of hosts and guests that can be caused by conditions of globalization.
