Jury – Søren Grammel

From 2013 until October 2020, Søren Grammel has been Head of the Department of Art Since 1960 / Contemporary Art at Kunstmuseum Basel. Previous posts include Director of Kölnischer Kunstverein, Director of Grazer Kunstverein, Curator-in-Residence at Akademie der bildenden Künste Vienna, Curator at Kunstverein München, or Artistic Director of the Videonale 9 in Bonn. A recurring motif in his exhibitions is the linking of artistic discourses with social issues, as for example in Circular Flow – On the Global Economy of Inequality (2019/2020), Martha Rosler & Hito Steyerl: War Games (2018), One Million Years – System und Symptom (2014), Public Folklore (2011) or The Symbolic Commissioner (2010). In the Museum für Gegenwartskunst Basel, he broke with canonical views and worked independently of current art world trends. During his time in Basel, he realised numerous discursive events such as symposium Decolonizing Art Institutions or exhibitions such as The Revolt of Language with Marcel Broodthaers (2014). Recently, he realised the exhibition Isa Genzken. Works from 1973 to 1983 at Kunstmuseum Basel, also on view at Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen, K 21, Düsseldorf (from May, 2021).
