Author(s): Jens Hoffmann
The sequel to the 2014 bestseller (Curating) From A to Z, this book extends the investigation of curatorial practice that the writer, exhibition maker and educator Jens Hoffmann (born 1974) began in the first volume. (Curating) From Z to A offers a summary of the development of curatorial practice over the last two decades as seen through the eyes of one of its leading practitioners. Organized in reverse alphabetical order, each letter of the alphabet evokes a particular word related to the world of exhibition making: from D (Durational) and S (Scenography) to R (Relational) and F (Feminism). Other entries include those dedicated to the Venice Bienniale, Tate, Kunsthalle, Lucy Lippard, Xenophobia, Black Box and Gentrification.
