Exhibiting the Exhibition: From the Cabinet of Curiosity to the Curatorial Situation
Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden and Hatje Cantz, 2018

Edited by Johan Holten

Exhibiting the Exhibition investigates the history of exhibiting up to the present day. The show at the Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden begins with predecessors to the modern museum and early art collections, then moves on to twentieth-century exhibition methods and the curatorial positions of today. The catalogue expands upon the exhibition concept: instead of photographing the exhibits for publication, various illustrators were hired to draw them, so that the book itself becomes an entirely independent instrument of “display.” Besides the essays and interviews, the volume features works by John Bock, Mariana Castillo Deball, Andrea Fraser, Jeppe Hein, Julian Irlinger, Friedrich Kiesler, Louise Lawler, El Lissitzky, Karin Sander, Sebastian Thewes, Kaari Upson, Pae White, Fred Wilson, and many others.
