Taraneh Fazeli (US)
Taraneh Fazeli is a curator, researcher, and educator from NYC. Fazeli has investigated what it means to do institutional critique from within arts organizations, in her work at the meta-institution e-flux to the New Museum for Contemporary Art. As a freelance curator, she’s continued organizing configurations of objects and experiences to explore relationships within social and political systems and institutional bodies. She will return to the van Eyck after a year-long appointment in the States where she will curate three exhibitions researched here. The first, “Sick Time, Sleepy Time, Crip Time: Against Capitalism’s Temporal Bullying” investigates how care for the body in states of debility and disability can prompt a re-imagining of collectivity; the second looks at voice, as acoustic material and vehicle for representation; the third is a group show on cultural rituals of justice in extraterritorial spaces.
