Rhea Dall: PRAXES Center for Contemporary Art in Berlin / Lecture and consultation

Akademie výtvarných umění
U Akademie 4
Czech Republic

In her lecture, Dall will talk about PRAXES Center for Contemporary Art – a new independent not-for-profit venue for international contemporary art and research in Berlin. Situated in a two floor 200 m2 community building of the renovated, brutalist church St. Agnes in Kreuzberg, Berlin, PRAXES presents half year Cycles of consecutive exhibition modules and live activities revolving around two distinct artistic practices. PRAXES invites audiences to collectively and critically explore the range and diversity of artistic practice today by gradually – over the half year Cycle – presenting artworks, production processes as well as related material in cumulative exhibition moduels, text, and event formats. This autumn PRAXES has been focusing on Gerard Byrne (IR) and Jutta Koether (DE).


Rhea Dall is a Berlin-based curator and scholar, who – together with Kristine Siegel – recently founded the new not-for-profit venue for contemporary art and research: PRAXES Center for Contemporary Art in Berlin (www.praxes.de). In addition, Dall is currently working on her doctorate in the arts at Copenhagen University on the subject of “experimental art institutions” – an engagement that follows her recent position as curator at Kunsthal Charlottenborg, Copenhagen, before which she worked for the Berlin Biennale (2008/10) and coordinated The Danish & Nordic Pavilions in Venice 2009.
