Presented by the HfG Open Resource Center, the transdisciplinary Archive Talks series is dedicated to discussing the challenges of archival research and practice. We continue the series on June 29 with a talk by Moritz Nebenführ on the archival and publication practice of artist Jef Geys.
Drawing on his master's thesis and several years of research and curatorial work on the Belgian artist and art educator Jef Geys (1934-2018), HfG alumnus Moritz Nebenführ will discuss Geys' strategies of self-archiving and present close readings of selected issues of the Kempens Informatieblad, a newspaper the artist self-published beginning in 1971 as an alternative to conventional catalogue formats.
Moritz Nebenführ studied art history and philosophy in Karlsruhe and New York. He has organised exhibitions and events in institutional and self-organised settings, including at Kunstverein München, Künstlerhaus Bremen, Badischer Kunstverein and the project space Linden in Düsseldorf, many of them together with Gloria Hasnay. Following a curatorial fellowship at Artists Space, New York, he accompanied the work of artist Anne Imhof from 2016 to 2021. Together with Lennart Boyd Schürmann he has set up BRUCH, a research and production framework operating across the fields of theatre, art and academia, most recently at venues such as Cabaret Voltaire/Theater Neumarkt in Zurich, the Munich Documentation Centre for the History of National Socialism and Münchner Kammerspiele.
