Jens Hoffmann: (Curating) From Z to A
(Curating) From Z to A offers a summary of the development of curatorial practice over the last two decades, seen through the eyes of curator, author and Deputy Director of the Jewish Museum, Jens Hoffmann (born 1974).
In this new publication, each letter of the alphabet evokes a particular word related to the world of exhibition making — from A (as in Art) and B (as in Biennial) to R (as in Retrospective) and W (as in White Cube).
Employing a diaristic style, Hoffmann presents his personal curatorial alphabet with a similar transparency and the same idiosyncratic character revealed in many of his exhibitions. The entries are not only stimulating and intellectually rigorous, but also emotionally engaging.
