Julia Mortiz

Julia-MoritzArt historian and curator Julia Moritz has been the Head of “Maybe Education and Public Programs of dOCUMENTA (13)” until very recently. The department pursued new methods in art education and reassessed the successful public programs of past documenta exhibitions. Before she was the curator of University of Lüneburg, where she was responsible both for the exhibition and events program of the university’s art space, Kunstraum, and also taught seminars in the cultural studies teaching program. In the course of her postgraduate studies in Vienna, New York and Bilbao she wrote a doctoral thesis on issues relating to institutional conditions in contemporary art. She previously worked for major exhibitions such as Manifesta 7 in Trentino/Alto Adige (2008) and the German Pavilion at the 52th Biennale di Venezia (2007). Independently curated projects include the group show “Critical Complicity” (with Lisa Mazza) in Vienna, Ljubljana and Bolzano (2010). The volume “Question of the Day”, (2007), jointly edited with Nicolaus Schafhausen and published by Sternberg Press gives insight into Moritz’ ongoing dialogical inquiry into the formats used for art production and reception.
