CAS Museum Member curators only

We will visit Berlin for the opening of the 10th Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art, which takes place at various venues across the city. This edition will be curated by Gabi Ngcobo, who invited Moses Serubiri, Nomaduma Rosa Masilela, Thiago de Paula Souza and Yvette Mutumba to collaborate with her as the curatorial team. The 10th Berlin Biennale will be imagined and shaped through their collective dreams and actions.

In conversation with artists and contributors who think and act beyond art, the curatorial process will confront the incessant anxieties perpetuated through the misunderstanding of complex subjectivities. Facing the current widespread state of collective psychosis, and starting from the position of Europe, Germany, and Berlin as a city in dialogue with the world, the curatorial process will be selective, non-comprehensive and will not provide a coherent reading of histories or the present of any kind. Key starting points of the curatorial team will be strategies of self-preservation as acts of dismantling dominant structures and building from a non-hierarchical position.

The CAS programme will also include visits to galleries and artists’ studios.
