About us

Curated Affairs is Kasia Lorenc and Angelika J. Trojnarski. We curate pop-up exhibitions and events at various venues and in changing collaborations. In doing so, we work together with both young and established contemporary artists. Our activities reflect our Polish origins and current German homeland either in the exhibition content or in the choice of artists involved. Our projects initiate a dialog and have a thematic orientation, be it political, social, philosophical, scientific, or radically artistic. We advocate for more diversity and gender equality. Should you nevertheless discover a tendency in our undertakings, it is toward underrepresented female artists.
In 2019, the year of our foundation, we have realized four exhibitions: ROSA, commemorating the 100th anniversary of Rosa Luxemburg’s death, and a three-part series of anniversary exhibitions celebrating thirty years of town twinning between Düsseldorf and Warsaw: The Difference in Similarity and The Similarity in Difference in collaboration with the Polish Institute in Düsseldorf and As x as y at the Warsaw Palace of Culture. In 2020, we presented an online exhibition on contemporary drawing with art from the Rhineland and Berlin.
