Övül Ö. Durmusoglu is an independent curator, educator and writer, currently guest professor and program co-leader in the Graduate School, UdK Berlin and visiting professor in the HBK Braunschweig. Focused on the intersectional narratives around contemporary political subjectivities, she acts between singular languages and collective energies, worldly immersions and historical cosmologies. Övül has recently co-curated 3rd AUTOSTRADA BIENNALE in Kosovo, 12th Survival Kit Festival in Riga, Latvia and “Die Balkone: Life, Art, Pandemic and Proximity” in Berlin (2020-21) with Joanna Warsza.

CCS Bard Speaker Series Each semester CCS Bard hosts a program of lectures by leading artists, curators, art historians, and critics, situating the school and museum’s concerns within the larger context of contemporary art production and discourse. Speakers are selected primarily by second-year graduate students and also by faculty and staff. All lectures are free and open, and will also be documented through audio recordings that reside in the CCS Bard Library & Archives. This semester, some talks will be in-person and others will be online. In order to receive a zoom link, registration is required in advance on eventbrite here.
