In the 6th issue of the series Czech Contemporary Art in Berlin we will introduce the curatorial collaborative.
Helena and Jana describe curatorial collaborative as an agency for presentation, communication and mediation of art and architecture focusing on finding innovative means of mediation and display. Through art and architecture networks they try to advance the discourse on curation in the Czech Republic and internationally. They are based in Prague and Berlin.
Helena Doudová is a curator and art historian. Currently she works as a curator of the Architecture Collection at the National Gallery in Prague. She cooperated on the Creative Europe project “Shared Cities: Creative Momentum”. Moreover she worked as a research and curatorial fellow of the International Museum Program on an exhibition of infographics in the German Museum of Books and Writing in Leipzig. She also initiated and curated, among others, the exhibition “Baugruppe ist super!” in the Kvalitář Gallery in Prague.
Jana Doudová studied humanities at Charles University in Prague and curatorial studies at University of Jan Evangelista Purkyně in Ústí nad Labem. Jana is a co-founder of theinformal art platform UMA: You Make Art, which focuses on mediation of contemporary art to the general public. She cooperated on the show “Baugruppe ist super!” with Helena.
