In the 17th issue of Contemporary Czech Art in Berlin by the Czech Centre Berlin we spoke to Magdalena Jadwiga Härtelová. She is a curator and artist currently working between Berlin, Prague, and the Bay Area. She focuses on care and its ethics in action through exhibition and art making, writing, social practice projects and community organizing. Härtelová received her MA degree in Curatorial Practice at the California College of the Arts, where she wrote her thesis on "Curating and the Concept of Intersectional Care". As a curator she runs e.g. a gallery space located at Kottbusser Damm 68, 10967 Berlin, in her bedroom.
In the podcast you can learn more about the current program of the gallery on Kottbusser Damm, about the project the Hologram which was established as a reaction to today's crisis, what was crucial for Magdalena in the exhibition series she curated on accessibility for GAVU in Prague and also about her thoughts on identity and a project focusing on the possibility of communication in different mother tongues.
