Spaces of the Curatorial
Ute Meta Bauer & Brigitte Oetker (Eds.)
The curatorial challenges of working in Southeast Asia are explored in the new Jahresring journal, an annual series of interdisciplinary, discursive readers. Southeast Asia is experiencing accelerated global visibility and strong nation- and institution-building. Given this dynamic, how do curators engage with the intricacies of each place? How do they respond to the specificities of a location in the context of the international art world? The diversity of voices in this issue mirrors the complexity of the region itself: its various curatorial spaces, infrastructures and political systems. What emerges is a highly diverse art system that shifts away from traditional formats to embrace new or alternative platforms—from symposia to fieldwork—with the aim of emphasizing curating as a process of critical thinking that goes beyond presentations and representations. Featured contributors include Ute Meta Bauer, Zoe Butt, Kevin Chua, Patrick D. Flores, Gridthiya Gaweewong, Tony Godfrey, Yin Ker, Eileen Legaspi-Ramirez, Seng Yu Jin, Simon Soon, Nora A. Taylor David Teh.
