Jens Hoffmann, Curatorial Déjà vu
In his lecture, Jens Hoffmann will explore the recent trend in exhibition making to revisit, recurate or otherwise reanimate historically important exhibitions. Hoffmann will discuss his thoughts and ideas that culminated in his recent revival of two legendary shows from the 1960s: Primary Structures (The Jewish Museum, New York, 1966) and Live in your Head: When Attitudes Become Form (Kunsthalle Bern, 1969), resulting in Other Primary Structures (The Jewish Museum, New York, 2014) and When Attitudes Became Form Become Attitudes (CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Art, San Francisco, 2012).
Jens Hoffmann is an exhibition maker and writer, and is currently Deputy Director of The Jewish Museum, New York.
