BERLIN.- The Berlin-based curator Kathrin Becker will be the new artistic director of the KINDL – Centre for Contemporary Art. Kathrin Becker is currently managing director of the Neuer Berliner Kunstverein (n.b.k.) and has been director of the Video-Forum there since 2001.

Kathrin Becker studied art history and Slavic studies at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum and Leningrad State University. Themes of her curatorial work are intercultural and transnational issues, the role of visual art in society, and the complex of exclusion and inclusion in contemporary cultures. Exhibitions she was responsible for include Candice Breitz: Labour (n.b.k., Berlin, 2019), John Bock: Im AntliTZ des SchädelapparaTZ (n.b.k., 2019), Halil Altındere: Space Refugee (n.b.k., 2016), 3rd Moscow International Biennial for Young Art (Central House of Artists, Moscow, 2012), No more bad girls? (Kunsthalle Exnergasse, Vienna, 2010), Artur Żmijewski: Selected Works (n.b.k., 2007), Louise Bourgeois: Intime Abstraktionen (Akademie der Künste Berlin, 2003), and Can you hear me? 2nd Ars Baltica Triennial of Photographic Art (Stadtgalerie Kiel, Kunsthalle Rostock, Contemporary Art Centre, Vilnius, Kunsthaus Dresden, and others, 1999–2001).

“Within a short time, the KINDL – Centre for Contemporary Art has developed into an important institution within the Berlin art scene and offers great potential for exhibitions and projects in various formats. I’m looking forward to this new task as artistic director of the KINDL and to helping shape the further development of its profile and increasing the focus on social issues in the program,” says the designated director of the KINDL.

Kathrin Becker will take over for Andreas Fiedler at the KINDL on 1 February 2020. At his own request, Andreas Fiedler has terminated his permanent contract, which will now end in spring 2020, in order to once again work as a freelance curator and devote himself to new projects.
