LONDON.- 176 / Zabludowicz Collection will present an exhibition of works from the Zabludowicz Collection guest curated by Anna-Catharina Gebbers.

As part of 176 / Zabludowicz Collection’s curatorial residency, Anna-Catharina Gebbers was given complete freedom to create an exhibition from the over 2,000 works in the Zabludowicz Collection. The result is a dramatic contrast to former presentations of works from the Collection.

With over 200 works exhibited, "The Library of Babel: In and Out of Place" will be the largest ever showcase of works from the Zabludowicz Collection. Anna-Catharina Gebbers invites us into a salon-style exhibition, a format which emphasises the deliberately overwhelming amount of contemporary works of art including painting, photography, sculpture and video.

Inspired by Argentine writer Jorge Luis Borges’ short story "The Library of Babel", (1941) where inhabitants of an infinite library search for the absolute interpretation of the information around them, "The Library of Babel: In and Out of Place" encourages the visitor to embark on a similar quest for meaning.

While Anna-Catharina Gebbers generously empowers the visitors to draw their own conclusions from the Collection, seemingly incongruous works belie carefully disguised threads of meaning waiting to be uncovered and interpreted.

“"The Library of Babel: In and Out of Place" questions my role as it places every visitor in the role of curator; the sheer number of works forces the visitor to chose which works will receive attention. I am interested in how these decisions are made.” Anna-Catharina Gebbers

The exhibition will be accompanied by an extensive public program where invited professionals and visitors alike are offered the chance to become Guides, conducting tours for the public. Discussing how and why our attention and perception is guided and exposing different ways of creating meaning within the exhibition.

There will be an accompanying series of lectures and panel discussions with experts including scientists and theorists from backgrounds as wide-ranging as neurology, psychology, sociology, philosophy, linguistics and literature; there will also be an illustrated publication with specially commissioned texts designed by Joff + Ollie.

Anna-Catharina Gebbers is a curator and writer based in Berlin. Since 2004 she has curated some 50 exhibitions with over 300 artists. Gebbers also edits several cultural magazines and is the author of books about artists including Thomas Scheibitz, Paloma Varga Weisz and Thomas Schütte. Her non-profit project space ANNA-CATHARINA GEBBERS | BIBLIOTHEKSWOHNUNG in Berlin presents transdisciplinary collaborations with artists, curators, cultural activists and other institutions. www.bibliothekswohnung.com

176 / Zabludowicz Collection collaborates with curators and artists, enabling them to realize projects with the Zabludowicz Collection and the exhibition space at 176 Prince of Wales Road, London.

Anna-Catharina Gebbers has been Guest Curator from 2009-10. This exhibition is the culmination of "In and Out of Place", her project for the Zabludowicz Collection which examines the idea of collecting and collections from various perspectives. In August 2008, 176 / Zabludowicz Collection and Gebbers invited over 100 artists to be part of "The Krautcho Club: In and Out of Place", a collection-based project exhibited in both Berlin and London. In September 2009 the second part of the residency took place at ANNA-CATHARINA GEBBERS | BIBLIOTHEKSWOHNUNG. Entitled "V-Effekt: In and Out of Place" it contained an archive of moving image works from the Zabludowicz Collection for visitors to browse alongside an installation of works from the Collection.
