Susanne Pfeffer to Curate German Pavilion at 2017 Venice Biennale

Susanne Pfeffer, director of the Museum Fridericianum in Kassel, has been named curator of the German pavilion at the Venice Biennale in 2017. The decision was made by Berlin’s Foreign Minister, Frank-Walter Steinmeier, with the recommendation of the Art and Exhibition Committee.

Before her work in Kassel, Pfeffer headed the Künstlerhaus in Bremen and from 2007 to 2012 served as chief curator of the Kunst-Werke in Berlin-Mitte. She’s already a Venice Biennale veteran, having previously curated artist Pamela Rosenkranz’s work at the Swiss Pavilion earlier this year.
