Curatorial Things

Beatrice von Bismarck and Benjamin Meyer-Krahmer
Sternberg Press
Contemporary Art, Curating

The meaning, function, and status of things have changed decisively over the past two decades—a development that stems from increasing skepticism about the ability of things to present culture. This questioning of thingness is an integral part of presentation and has shaped the relevance of the field of the curatorial. Immanent to presentation as a mode of being (public) in the world, the curatorial has the potential to address, visualize, and investigate the central effects of the changing status and function of things. The presentational mode has played a generative role, vitally participating in the mobilization of things through its aesthetic, semantic, social, and, not least, economic dimensions. Intertwining transdisciplinary discourses, transcultural perspectives, and methods of practice, the anthology Curatorial Things provides new insight into the analysis of things.

With contributions by Arjun Appadurai, Annette Bhagwati, Beatrice von Bismarck, Bill Brown, Sabeth Buchmann, Clémentine Deliss, André Lepecki, Maria Lind, Sven Lütticken, Florian Malzacher, Benjamin Meyer-Krahmer, Sarah Pierce, Peter J. Schneemann, Jana Scholze, Kavita Singh, Lucy Steeds, Leire Vergara, Katharina Weinstock, Judith Welter.
