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.
Anne Schreiber is a scholar of Literature, Philosophy, and Economics at Humboldt-University Berlin, Germany, and curated an exhibition at the university on net art to question the nature of new media art in relation to social and political phenomena. At de Appel arts centre in Amsterdam, Netherlands, Schreiber assisted with various curatorial projects focusing on art in the public realm, art as social practice, as well as art production and display under postmodern and postcolonial conditions. As the assistant to the director of Kunstverein Freiburg, Germany, she curated an exhibition on artist’s books, a lecture series on art as research practice, and a workshop on the work of international and local spaces. Recently, she was Curatorial Assistant at Kunsthaus Dresden, Germany, for a series of projects that dealt with conditions of exhibiting. Schreiber is currently developing an exhibition for the city of Freiburg, which focuses on the art discourse as a work of art itself, opening in 2014. She also writes for numerous publications such as artnet Magazine, Berliner Gazette, Der Tagesspiegel, De:Bug, Telepolis, and artline.
