A few months after the appointment of Krist Gruijthuijsen as director, KW Institute for Contemporary Art in Berlin has announced its new and expanded artistic team. It will consist of Anna Gritz as curator, Leaver-Yap and Tirdad Zolghadr as associate curators, Maurin Dietrich and Cathrin Mayer as assistant curators/project managers, and Marc Hollenstein as graphic designer.
The new members all have backgrounds working for international institutions: Gritz previously worked at the South London Gallery and was a curatorial attaché on this year’s Biennale of Sydney, Tirdad Zolghadr curates projects internationally while teaching at the Dutch Art Institute and the International Academy of Art in Ramallah, and Dietrich and Mayer both worked on this year’s Berlin Biennale, part of which is currently on view at the KW. The museum said its restructuring will aim to increase its collaborations for exhibitions and projects within the city of Berlin as well as internationally.
