Ruth Noack presentsa talk on "Making Exhibitions in a Global Context" for The Real and the Political, the fourth annual Joan & Martin Goldfarb Summer Institute in Visual Arts.
Noack is an independent curator, critic and writer currently based in Vienna, Austria. Her work is informed by her studies in feminist theory and an interdisciplinary approach incorporating contemporary media, film and political theory.
Noack's numerous publications and lectures include monographs on the work of Eva Hesse, Alejandra Riera, Danica Dakic, Ines Doujak and Mary Kelly. She served as curator for documenta 12, which focused on the work of women artists and explored contemporary forms of global exhibition. During the past decade, in collaboration with Roger M. Buergel, she created a series of exhibitions on the theme of “Die Regierung/The Government”, dealing with issues of governmentality, that were presented in Lüneburg, Germany; Miami; Vienna, Austria; and Rotterdam, Netherlands. She is currently engaged in a research project on the concept of the translocal museum.
