Breaking the News. The dynamics of commentary in the curatorial

Commentary clarifies, validates, and argues from a subjective position. As an instrument of opinion-making it serves to question existing discourses on truth. Breaking the News explores curatorial practices that present swift, concrete statements on pressing current political issues and discourses – an approach that can be characterized by the term “commentary” as it is journalistically defined.
Through an interdisciplinary dialogue, curator Michaela Richter and artist Christina Kral have assembled different manifestations of commentary into an exhibition setting—research and questions that enable a convergence of its individual methods and a critical engagement with their possible strengths and necessary shortfalls.


Curatorial Practices: Fields and Techniques is a project series on current developments, problems and methods of the curatorial.
