Independent Curators International (ICI) produces exhibitions, events, publications, research and training opportunities for curators and diverse audiences around the world. Established in 1975 and headquartered in New York, ICI is a hub that connects emerging and established curators, artists, and art spaces, forging international networks and generating new forms of collaborations. ICI provides access to the people and practices that are key to current developments in the field, inspiring fresh ways of seeing and contextualizing contemporary art.
Britta Peters (b. in Birkenfeld an der Nahe in 1967) received her education in cultural studies at the Universität Lüneburg and now works as an art critic and freelance curator. In 2007 she curated the “Wilhelmsburger Freitag,” an art project in the public realm in Hamburg, and from 2008 to 2011 she served as artistic director of the Kunstverein Harburger Bahnhof. In 2012 she curated the exhibition “Demonstrationen. Vom Werden normativer Ordnungen” at the Frankfurt Kunstverein, in collaboration with the “Normative Orders” Cluster of Excellence at Frankfurt’s Goethe-Universität; the exhibition project “Illness as Metaphor: Madness in the Garden of the Species,” initiated by Peters, followed in 2014. She has published extensively on art in the public realm and held various teaching positions – recently, for example, at the Hochschule für Bildende Künste Hamburg. She assumed the position of curator for the Skulptur Projekte 2017 in January 2015.
