Early this year, internationally renowned Nigerian curator Okwui Enwezor passed away. Among his many ground-breaking curatorial endeavours, Documenta11 (Kassel, Germany, 2002) is regarded as foundational in the history of contemporary global art exhibition and the access of non-Western art in the Western institutional art mainstream. As the artistic director of Documenta11, Enwezor formed an internationally integrated curatorial team. Professor Ute Meta Bauer will talk about her experience, as one of the appointed curators, at Documenta11 and her close working relationship with Okwui Enwezor. The talk will be followed by a discussion with students from NTU ADM’s Master of Arts in Museum Studies and Curatorial Practices programme, that will address their experience at the Biennale Jogja XV 2019.
