The fol­low­ing cur­at­ors are re­spons­ible for the se­lec­tion of the artists and works, which are shown at KUNST.IST! The in­di­vidu­al cur­at­ors are in their de­cision to in­clude an artist or a work at KUNST.IST! in­de­pend­ent and free of any in­flu­ence. Not every cur­at­or named here is re­spons­ible for the se­lec­tion of all works, but only for a part of the works. This de­pends on when his/her activ­ity as a cur­at­or has star­ted, or wheth­er he/she was present or in­volved in the de­cision. The cur­at­or team is al­ways oc­cu­pied in odd num­bers in order to make a ma­jor­ity de­cision.

We are happy to an­swer de­tailed ques­tions.
