MA Curating the Contemporary students at Berlin Art Week!
Students on the MA Curating the Contemporary course in partnership with Whitechapel Gallery have curated an exhibition in Berlin at me Collectors Room. Entitled 'Exotica and 4 other cases of the self' the exhibition is part of 'Berlin Art Week', a major city-wide art festival from the 16th-21st September 2014.
'EXOTICA... and 4 other cases of the self’ centres on the question of the self in the modern day and uses the Wunderkammer Olbricht as a starting point.
In this exhibition, the individual is viewed as a Wunderkammer, and its five traditional categories – artificialia, naturalia, scientifica, mirabilia, and exotica – are transferred to the realm of human existence and redefined as: instincts, simulacra, intellect, peculiarities, and exotica and create a suspenseful and sudden relation between Wunderkammer objects and contemporary artworks.
The exhibition and the accompanying publication are the product of a collaboration between the three curators Fanny Nina Borel, Myrto Katsimicha, and Elisabetta Rabajoli, as part of their Master’s degree in Curating the Contemporary at London Metropolitan University with the Whitechapel Gallery and me Collectors Room/Olbricht Foundation as partners.
