Presentation of the first publication of the CPA

As part of the exhibition of the winning project of the Cathrin Pichler Prize 2018 the first publication of the Cathrin Pichler Archive The Curator As..., edited by Felicitas Thun-Hohenstein and Sabine Priglinger, Schlebrügge 2018, is presented.

The contributions of the authors collected here subject the concept of curating and the curator role of the curator to a thorough revision—against the background of the work and outlook of the Vienna-based curator Cathrin Pichler, who passed away in 2012 and who put on exhibitions like Wunderblock (1989), Der sechste Sinn (1995), :Engel :Engel (1997), Hommage à Antonin Artaud (2002), and The Moderns (2010) to realize her transdisciplinary concept that insisted on involving the history of natural sciences and literature in art-historical discourse.
