Krist Gruijthuijsen Named Director of KW Institute for Contemporary Art

KW Institute for Contemporary Art has appointed Krist Gruijthuijsen as its new director. He will begin in July after the ninth Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art.

Along with his appointment there will be a restructuring of the institute. The former director of both KW and the Berlin Biennale, Gabriele Horn, will continue to run the biennale, and the directors will be supported by an administrative manager.

Gruijthuijsen is moving to Berlin after four years as artistic director of Grazer Kunstverein. He was also course leader in the department of fine art at the Sandberg Instituut in Amsterdam. He is a cofounder of Amsterdam’s Kunstverein, which he directed from 2009 to 2012.
