Marina Fokidis gives a curatorial course next summer. She already participated in the Global Academy II conference in 2018, and she was eager to teach at the summeracademy. She’s a quick thinker, has a huge knowledge and experience. Not only from working with the last documenta in Kassel and in Athens, but also as the editor of South as a state of mind. This is a low/sometimes nearly no budget magazine of extraordinary quality. Global curating is her core topic.
Marina is lively and enthusiastic and she can be disarmingly honest. For instance when it comes to economic conditions of certain institutions. She travels a lot and she likes to share her knowledge, her ideas and her networks and she has a good humour. This is under others what makes her a good teacher, I presume.
