Interviews

with artists and curators

How does an exhibition arise? What kinds of ideas and thoughts go into creating it? How does the dialog between exhibition organizer and artist develop? How do artists themselves talk about their work?

Our interviews offer a glimpse behind the scenes. We talk to the curators responsible for working out the concept of an exhibition, who reveal interesting details and background information; and to the artists, who offer personal insights into their work. Hatje Cantz makes art accessible.
