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.
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.
As part of ICI’s Curator’s Perspective—an itinerant public discussion series featuring national and international curators—Britta Peters and Kasper König will present on the 2017 edition of the Skulptur Projekte Münster.read more »
