Anne Szefer Karlsen on ‘Dublett’ in collaboration with Independent Curators International
Curator Anne Szefer Karlsen will take as her starting point the book series Dublett to discuss the relation between editorial and curatorial work, an intersection seldom discussed in public. Dublett (2012-2015) is a publication series of four books featuring Annette Kierulf & Caroline Kierulf, Toril Johannessen, Pedro Gómez-Egaña and Elsebeth Jørgensen. Each book consists of an artist’s book, representing a distinct work of art in the artists’ oeuvre, as well as an anthology of commissioned texts on the artist or project at hand, written specifically for Dublett by contributors from a variety of disciplines. The books have a particular ‘three part architecture’, designed by award-winning designers Anti/Grandpeople. Szefer Karlsen is the series editor of Dublett, and together with strong team of editors (Eva Rem Hansen, Maria Lyngstad Willassen), she collaborated closely with the artists to provide them with an opportunity to actively participate in the contextualisation of their own work. Through Dublett they thereby explored the artistic endeavour as it unfolded, rather than canonizing it retrospectively. The editorial process therefore had many similarities to contemporary exhibition making, thus lending itself to a discussion on the intersections of editorial and curatorial work.
Anne Szefer Karlsen is a curator, writer and editor, interested in artistic and curatorial collaborations as well as developing the language that surrounds art productions of today – linguistically, ideologically, spatially and structurally. She is teaching and lecturing in formal and informal education, and is currently Associate Professor for MA Curatorial Practice at Bergen Academy of Art and Design (2015-2021).
This event is a collaboration with Independent Curators International Offsite Curatorial Hub.
