:: The role of the curator – A critique of the art system today. (1)
“There is a saying, that says that a plan is a list of things that will not work”

(1) This text has a long prehistory; originally developed orally in collaboration with the Kunstwerke in Berlin (Renate Wagner), it was able to be made known to different audiences in different places. The lecture takes up some questions, which were discussed for the first time in seminars and tested in lectures from 2013 on and have been continuously expanded since then:
– Lecture: The Art of the Possible, 7th Annual Conference of the Association for Cultural Management, 17-19 January 2013, Potsdam.
– On 03.03.2018 the lecture „The Role of the Curator. A Critique of the Art System Today“ took place at the NGMA (National Gallery of Modern Art). The lecture was financed on the occasion of the exhibition „Nature Embedded. A Design Technology Experience“ (02.02.-04.03.2018) – curated by Dr. Ajanta Sen, by the Goethe-Institut/ Max Mueller Bhavan and the IIT/IDC Bombay.
– This text form of the lecture was written in October 2019.

:: Twelve Years „Digital Gallery“ at Gemäldegalerie Berlin, an art-historically based overall system, realized by the Gesellschaft für Medienproduktionen in Berlin (MIB GmbH), Managing Director: Arthur Engelbert, 1998-2010.

Until about four years ago, the trilingual animation ran in the rooms of the Gemäldegalerie, visitors came only because of this form of information and discussion: it was pioneering in its kind of associative logic, unique technologically by incorporating the click activity of museum visitors, and corresponded in content to a three-volume work of art history. A total of 30 scientists, technicians, museum experts and designers worked on the Digital Gallery for one year. It opened at the same time as the Dahlem Picture Gallery moved to the Cultural Forum in 1998. All in all, this animation represents a milestone in the history of digitization in a museum context.

Based on this text an animation was developed, which was presented from time to time at lectures or in the use of mediation. An idea of this is given in the essay „The Limits of Reflection in the Mirror of the Image“ in the book „Politics and Image. A long-term study on perceptual upheavals within the last three and a half decades“, published by Arthur Engelbert, Marburg: Tectum Verlag 2016, S.295-308.
