by curators on historical exhibitions; assessments of the 11th Istanbul Biennial
from four different viewpoints; texts reconsidering the idea of the solo show;
and texts by curators who discuss the curatorial process of recent exhibitions
they have worked on.

Simon Fujiwara’s lecture
October 6th, 2009 at 8.00 pm
Simon Fujiwara continuously re-constructs his own identity by weaving
his personal and family biographies into the larger scheme of history, through architectural installations, erotic fiction writing and lecture-performances. From expeditions in Africa to the underground world of sex in 70’s Spain, the personal experiences presented in Fujiwara’s lectures are used to explore a range of subjects from ethnology and eroticism to architecture and ancestry.
Please join us on Tuesday at Archive Kabinett in Dieffenbachstraße 31, Berlin.
We are looking forward to seeing you soon!
