In the MeantimeSpeculations on Art, Curating, and Exhibitions

Jens Hoffmann - In the Meantime
An anthology of texts by the influential American critic and curator. The publication includes essays on artists, exhibitions, and curating, catalogue texts, and interviews.
This volume brings together a wide selection of writings by exhibition maker and writer Jens Hoffmann and outlines his deep understanding of the interconnections among art, curating, theater, film, and literature. The nearly fifty texts include essays on artists, exhibitions, and curating; reviews of large-scale international group exhibitions; catalogue texts from exhibitions Hoffmann curated; and interviews and conversations with artists and other cultural practitioners. Collectively, the contributions outline the development of the author's thoughts and agenda and articulate a highly unique curatorial trajectory. The cover photograph is by acclaimed French artist Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster.
