Independent Curators International (ICI) supports the work of curators to help create stronger art communities through experimentation, collaboration, and international engagement. Curators are arts community leaders and organizers who champion artistic practice; build essential infrastructures and institutions; and generate public engagement with art. Our collaborative programs connect curators across generations, and across social, political and cultural borders. They form an international framework for sharing knowledge and resources — promoting cultural exchange, access to art, and public awareness for the curator’s role.
Bill Dietz is a composer and writer, based since 2003 in Berlin. From sounding the facade of Le Corbusier’s Unité d’habitation in Marseille to orchestrating echoes across city blocks in Manhattan, his work traces genealogies of publicness and the performance of listening. He is co-chair of Music/Sound in Bard College’s MFA program, and is currently Guest Professor of Sound at the Academy of Media Arts in Cologne. With Woody Sullender he co-founded and edits Ear │ Wave │ Event. In 2015 Edition Solitude released a monograph on his “Tutorial Diversions,” and in Fall 2017 a book accompanying his work L’école de la claque will appear. http://tutorialdiversions.org/
