Chus Martinez is one of the most speculative and critical minds within contemporary art and the curatorial field. We’ll hear her discussing the possible and perhaps necessary end of the art institution as we know it, and on what can be done to imagine other art sustaining environments. Towards an understanding of art, that is more in tune with the growing complexity of life, and one that is more at peace with its transformative role within this complexity.
Chus has an internationally acclaimed curatorial practice that spans over almost two decades that generated myriad exhibitions, publications, and at times some of the most unexpected forms of cultural production.
She is currently the head of the Art Institute at the FHNW Academy of Arts and Design in Basel.
