Dr. Clémentine Deliss is Global Humanities Professor of History of Art, University of Cambridge and Associate Curator at KW Institute for Contemporary Art in Berlin, where she directs the Metabolic Museum-University.

Her practice crosses the borders of contemporary art, curatorial experimentation, and critical anthropology.

“From Casino to Lazarett - Exercises for Remediating the Museum"

Legal complexity, contention, ambiguity and speculation underlie the relationship between collections from the past, and their latent potential for future knowledge production. For the younger generation, for example, there can be no in-depth decolonial art history without access to ethnographic collections, and the elaboration of a legal language with which to re-distribute rights. In her lecture, Clémentine Deliss will speak about ways of designing museums for transversal, performative, decolonial, and democratic models of art practice, research, and education.

Case studies will include her work with the Weltkulturen Museum in Frankfurt, and subsequent developments of the Metabolic Museum-University in Kyiv, Karlsruhe, Ljubljana, and more recently at KW Institute for Contemporary Art Berlin.
