German-Polish female curators exchange

The four-day network meeting “Meeting by the Sea” (TaM – Treffen am Meer) is intended as a platform for the exchange of contemporary art curators who work and mediate between the two countries of Germany and Poland.

TaM will take place at the Atelier Josepha art residence in Ahrenshoop between 9 and 12 June. A total of eight female curators, equally at home in Poland and Germany, have been invited to the “Meeting by the Sea” (TaM – Treffen am Meer). The meeting opens up space and time for an in-depth exchange about possible common concerns, stimulates a discourse about comparable and differing perspectives and offers the opportunity to think together cooperatively, strategically, sustainably and creatively into the future. The format also allows for the formulation of concrete joint projects. More information can be found here.

TaM has been initiated by the curatorial-artistic tandem Curated Affairs, the cultural office Düsseldorf, and the Polish Institute in Düsseldorf.

Curated Affairs is organised by Kasia Lorenc and Angelika J. Trojnarski who curate pop-up exhibitions and events at various venues and in changing collaborations. The activities reflect their Polish origins and current German homeland either in the exhibition content or in the choice of artists involved. Kasia Lorenc is a German-Polish cultural manager with several years of experience in project conceptualisation and organisation. Angelika J. Trojnarski is a German artist with Polish roots. She studied at the Düsseldorf Art Academy and graduated in 2013 as a master student of Andreas Gursky.

Atelier Josepha brings together nature and art under the central theme 'Baltic Sea'. It promotes critical reflection on the historical and current circumstances of the Baltic Sea region. The residency stands in a tradition of cultural cooperation and exchange within this area. It is inspired by the need to reflect on the mutual environment and shared seas – both as forces of nature and in their increasing vulnerability.
