Berlin Biennale Announces Curatorial Team for Tenth Edition

Gabi Ngcobo, the curator of the Tenth Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art, has invited Moses Serubiri, Nomaduma Rosa Masilela, Thiago de Paula, and Yvette Mutumba to collaborate with her as the curatorial team for the exhibition. In addition, graphic designer Maziyar Pahlevan was tapped to create the visual identity for this edition of the Biennial.

According to the Biennial’s website, each member of the team has “ongoing, malleable, and open-ended research interests,” and their creative output “continuously reflect[s] historical and current shifts and their uneasy entanglements.” The members have also worked previously with Ngcobo on various initiatives.

Opening on June 9, 2018, and running until September, the Biennial “proposes a plan for how to face collective madness” by focusing on strategies of self-preservation, the act of dismantling dominant structures, and building from a nonhierarchical position.
