Curator Conversations 

1000 Words



Featuring interviews with a myriad of curators from around the world, 1000 Words is a photography centred publication examining the effects of the pandemic on the different aspects of what makes the contemporary ‘photograph’. The contributors have executed prominent and influential exhibitions ranging from the MoMA, Tate Modern, MOCAA, SCoP, and more - each conversation offering diverse and thought provoking dialogue.

Among the fundamental questions engaged in the book are the medium specificity of photography; exhibitions as 'artwork'; critical contexts for imagery; the curator’s role; collaboration and community; notions of ethics, responsibility and care; relationships between artists and curators, museums and audiences; as well as propositions for 'decolonization' through forms of curatorial activism.  

Featuring Sarah Allen, Mariama Attah, Yves Chatap, Clément Chéroux, Charlotte Cotton, Christine Eyene, Louise Fedotov-Clements, Yining He, Tom Lovelace, Roxana Marcoci, Renée Mussai, Thyago Nogueira, Azu Nwagbogu, Danaé Panchaud, Alona Pardo, Anna-Kaisa Rastenberger, Holly Roussell, Kathrin Schönegg, Urs Stahel, Lisa Sutcliffe, Duncan Wooldridge
