Anselm Franke to Curate the Shanghai Biennale

Berlin-based Anselm Franke has been appointed chief curator of the tenth edition of the Shanghai Biennale. Franke, who currently works as the Head of Visual Art and Film at the Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin, says the Biennale will explore notions of subjectivity and creative process as it exists in contrast to “the logic of modernization, its rationalizations and standardizations” in an age of technological mediation.
