A Pendaflex for the Future: A Curatorial Research Project into the Exhibition Archive at Henie Onstad Kunstsenter
A Pendaflex for the Future is a 3-year curatorial exhibition-history research project at Henie Onstad Kunstsenter (HOK), intended to reflect on the exhibition archive as a site for curatorial knowledge production. It draws on the collective research of international curatorial residents invited to critically reflect and write on a single exhibition in HOK’s archives with aim of considering broader questions in the field, such as terms of production, how ideas circulate internationally, how the status of a work or exhibition might shift over time and how a curatorial or artistic concept, intention, and/or reception might be reframed from a contemporary point of view.
Milena Hoegsberg has been Chief Curator at Henie Onstad Kunstsenter, Oslo, since August 2011, where she has curated solo projects with Torbjørn Rødland, Lea Porsager, Pia Rönicke, Ann Cathrin November Hoibo and Omer Fast. She is the editor of books including Sasquatch Century (Mousse); Josef Albers: No Tricks, No Twinkling of the Eyes (Walther König) and Living Labor (Sternberg). She earned her MA at the Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College, and her BA in Art History at Columbia University, NY.
