Curator and Art historian
Lívia Nolasco-Rózsás is a curator and art historian. She has curated exhibitions at institutions of contemporary and media art worldwide since 2006, including at the ZKM | Center for Art and Media (Karlsruhe), Chronus Art Center (Shanghai), Nam June Paik Art Center (Seoul), and various institutions mainly in Central- and Eastern Europe, taking into consideration the constantly evolving media of contemporary art and its intersections with various disciplines. She has initiated and developed thematic exhibitions raising questions on topical issues such as electronic surveillance and democracy (Global Control and Censorship, 2015-18, with Bernhard Serexhe), the genealogy and social impact of planetary computation and computer code (Open Codes, 2017-21, with Peter Weibel et al.), the notion of computer-generated space (Spatial Affairs, 2021-23, with Giulia Bini), the social and political implications of immersion (Immerse!, 2023, with Corina Apostol).
As of 2019 she has done research in curatorial studies on the “virtual condition” and its implications in the exhibition space at the Academy of Fine Arts Leipzig. She is also the initiator and head of the international collaboration project Beyond Matter at ZKM | Karlsruhe, in which institutions such as Aalto University, Centre Pompidou, Paris, EPFL Pavilions, Lausanne, Ludwig Museum Budapest, Tallinn Art Hall and Tirana Art Lab participate.
Nolasco-Rózsás’s visit is organised in collaboration with the Finnish Cultural Institute in the UK and Ireland and the Goethe-Institut Finnland.
