Curator and critic Katia Krupennikova is a member of the Bergen Assembly, a docent at HKU University of the Arts, Utrecht, and a part of the curatorial team at V-A-C Foundation, Moscow. Through her projects, Krupennikova attempts to transform existing social and political constructs into critical artistic models within which existing relations can be mimicked, criticized, distorted, displaced, and revised. In 2015, she won the Akbank Sanat International Curator Competition. The exhibition Post-Peace, intended to take place in Istanbul, was censored by the host institution; it subsequently opened in extended form at Württembergischer Kunstverein, Stuttgart, 2017, and Nest, The Hague, 2017. Her recent projects include Imogen Stidworthy. Dialogues with People, co-curated with Hans D. Christ and Iris Dressler, Württembergischer Kunstverein, Stuttgart, 2018–2019; and It Won’t Be Long Now, Comrades!, co-curated with Inga Lāce, Framer Framed, Amsterdam, 2017. Krupennikova lives and works in Amsterdam.
