Museum cycle. A brief history of curating. Hero №3: Johannes Kladders

Anna Arutiunova
December 2, Thursday

Museum Cycle is a series of introductory sessions focusing on curators and museums. The series includes lectures about important museum buildings, strategies and curators who have influenced and shaped today’s art scene. The session is based on the book A brief history of curating (2008) by notable curator, and current co-director of the Serpentine Gallery in London, Hans-Ulrich Obrist. The book is a compilation of interviews with eleven internationally acclaimed curators – Obrist’s ‘heroes’.
Hero of our third lecture is Johannes Kladders (1924 – 2009), one of the most famous German curators of all time. Along with curating many renowned exhibitions, this influential figure can also be credited with discovering many great artists such as Joseph Beuys.
