TALK with Nathalie Zonnenberg

Nathalie Zonnenberg, art historian and former curator of Witte de With, will share key insights from her recently published book Conceptual Art in a Curatorial Perspective: Between Dematerialization and Documentation (Valiz 2019).

Conceptual Art in a Curatorial Perspective: Between Dematerialization and Documentation focuses on the curatorial practice of exhibiting conceptual art. The fact that conceptual works are not object-based, creates challenges in exhibiting or re-exhibiting these works. This book offers various perspectives on how to disclose conceptual art in the context of the museum, based on three detailed case studies and an extensive introduction in which the paradox of conceptual art is analyzed. It also elaborates on the history of exhibiting conceptual artworks, and on the influence of curators in their canonization. One of the case studies Zonnenberg will discuss is When Attitudes Become Form Bern 1969/ Venice 2013 at the Fondazione Prada in Venice (2013).
