The Exhibitionist: Journal on Exhibition MakingThe Exhibitionist: Journal on Exhibition Making

The First Six Years

Published by The Exhibitionist.
Edited with introduction by Jens Hoffmann. Text by Julian Myers-Szupinska.

A journal by curators for curators, The Exhibitionist has asked the most pertinent questions on contemporary exhibition-making since its founding in 2009
The Exhibitionist: Journal on Exhibition Making is an anthology of the first 12 issues of the journal about contemporary curating that bears the same name. Established in 2009 as a forum for critical reflection on exhibition-making and curatorial practice, The Exhibitionist has always defined itself as “by curators, for curators.” Modeled after the iconic French film journal Cahiers du cinéma, The Exhibitionist has served a critical role in examining current curatorial practices by focusing specifically on the exhibition format as a site of experimentation and inquiry. The Exhibitionist has historicized, analyzed and critiqued a phenomenon it is itself symptomatic of—the rise of the curator since the 1960s, the ensuing explosion of curatorial creativity and the growing fascination with the discipline of curating.
Over the six years of its run, The Exhibitionist has published writings from many of the most prominent curatorial voices in the field, offering a who’s who of curatorial practice; contributors include Okwui Enwezor, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Mary Jane Jacob, Nato Thompson, Jessica Morgan, Maria Lind, Sofía Hernández Chong Cuy and Massimiliano Gioni, to name just a select few.
Collected together in a monumental omnibus edition (clocking in at 975 pages), the complete run of the journal is accompanied by a new introduction by founding editor Jens Hoffmann, and a critical approach to a theory of the exhibition by senior editor Julian Myers-Szupinska. With the publication of this volume, The Exhibitionist closes a chapter of its existence as a print magazine and shifts its activities to the-exhibitionist.com.

Jens Hoffmann: (Curating) From A to ZJens Hoffmann: (Curating) From A to Z

Published by JRP|Ringier.
By Jens Hoffmann.

(Curating) From A to Z 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, the curator 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.

Ten Fundamental Questions of CuratingTen Fundamental Questions of Curating

Published by Mousse Publishing.
Edited by Jens Hoffmann. Foreword by Milovan Farronato. Text by Peter Eleey, Elena Filipovic, Juan A. Gaitán, Sofía Hernández Chong Cuy, Maria Lind, Chus Martínez, Jessica Morgan, Adriano Pedrosa, João Ribas, Dieter Roelstraete.

It has become almost obligatory to introduce a book on curating by noting the plethora of recent publications on the subject. How, in just a few short years, did we reach this point of saturation? What questions, exactly, do all these books address? Many attempt to offer an overview of the curatorial field as it exists today, or attempt to map its historical trajectory. Others propose a series of case studies under a common curatorial theme. All are hoping to contribute to this relatively new discipline and its accompanying canon. Edited by Jens Hoffmann, Ten Fundamental Questions of Curating offers a real critique of existing publications and modes of thinking by explicitly asking the questions that others have missed, ignored or deemed already answered: What is a curator? What is the public? What is art? What about collecting? What is an exhibition? Why mediate art? What to do with the contemporary? What about responsibility? What is the process? How about pleasure? Here, Peter Eleey, Elena Filipovic, Juan A. Gaitán, Sofía Hernández Chong Cuy, Maria Lind, Chus Martínez, Jessica Morgan, Adriano Pedrosa, João Ribas and Dieter Roelstraete each propose and then address one question. Ten Fundamental Questions of Curating takes a back-to-basics approach--a return to a kind of zero-degree state--at a time when a recalibration of what a curator is and does seems both necessary and urgent.
