Dr. Yilmaz Dziewior to Become the New Director of the Kunsthaus Bregenz

At its session on April 28, the Supervisory Board of the Vorarlberger Kulturhäuser- Betriebsgesellschaft unanimously appointed Dr. Yilmaz Dziewior to the position of Director of the Kunsthaus Bregenz. During the past weeks and months detailed negotiations have been conducted with qualified candidates recommended by an international, high-profile hearing commission, and following intense consultation the decision was finally made.

Landesstatthalter Wallner comments that as a top expert and representative of the younger generation Dr. Dziewior possesses ideal qualifications for taking on this challenging position as the Director of the Kunsthaus Bregenz. His international reputation, the great respect he enjoys among artists, and his outstanding talent for conveying contemporary art in an innovative and unpretentious manner promise a future of exciting development for the KUB in the years to come.

Dziewior will take over as Director of the Kunsthaus Bregenz on October 1, and will immediately begin work on the 2010 program. He was born in Boon in 1964, studied art history in London and Bonn, and received his doctor title "summa cum laude" with a dissertation on Mies van der Rohe. In addition to his many catalogue contributions on artists such as Thomas Demand, Sarah Lucas, Paul McCarthy , and Rosemarie Trockel, he has also written regularly for renowned international art journals.

After serving as Assistant Director and Curator at the Museum Ludwig in Cologne, he headed the Kunstverein in Hamburg from 2001 to 2008 and held a professorship at the University of Fine Arts in Hamburg (HFBK). Among his activities he has realized exhibitions and projects with Andrea Fraser, BodyIsek Kingelez, Louise Lawler, and Cildo Meireles. He recruited Diedrich Diederichsen as the so-called "Vereinsdenker 2007" and introduced a number of other new models for art education. His group exhibitions include "Andere Räume," "Zusammenhänge herstellen," "Bühne 03," "Gesellschaftsbilder. Zeitgenössische Malerei."

Dziewior served on the jury of the Hauptstadtkulturfonds Berlin and is a member of theAnkaufsder Bundesrepublik Deutschland. The new Director considers the Kunsthaus Bregenz to be one of the worldwide major institutions for contemporary art. He is excited to be in a position to continue the KUB´s already very successful programming. In addition to its large-scale solo exhibitions, he wants to introduce new interdisciplinary and process-oriented presentation formats.

The Kunsthaus Bregenz will soon be scheduling a special press conference at which Mr. Dziewior will be available for questions and answers. (press information)
