Abstract (English)

"Harald Szeemann (1933-2005) was one of the most influential curators of the recent past. An entire generation of curators has been inspired by his independent way of creating exhibitions and his emphatic method of presenting contemporary art. In retrospect, Szeemann's infallible interest in artistic loners with strong attitudes and powerful personalities seems like a vehement contradiction of the kind of art market that focuses on trends and movements. This volume describes the "Szeemann principle," the visions of an enlightened artistic curator, and provides an overview of the most important stations of his singular curatorial career: the legendary exhibitions "When Attitudes Become Form" and documenta 5, the great thematic explorations such as "Bachelor Machines" and " Der Hang zum Gesamtkunstwerk," his discovery of the young Eastern European scenes, and the Biennials in Venice, Lyon, and Seville." -- p. [4] of cover.
