This is a special anniversary Episode – it’s not only the first talk of the new year 2022, it’s also our No. 50!
Philipp Kaiser, Partner and President at Marian Goodman Galleries worldwide, is accordingly a very special guest.
As a curator he did almost everything one could think of. He relentlessy and with great passion follows his intuition and curiosity. Philipp considers art and history being in constant flux and in his practice combines concentration with dedication and bravery with openness. Recently he prepared the extensive exhibition, archive, and library about the life and work of Harald Szeemann at the Getty, he was curator of the Swiss Pavillion for the 2017 Venice Biennial, and served as curator at the Museum for Gegenwartskunst in Basel as well as senior curator at the MOCA in Los Angeles and last but not least Philipp was director of Museum Ludwig in Cologne from 2012 to 2014 and that’s just the tip of the iceberg…
Philipp talks his early days, first desiring to find an alternative lifestyle for himself through art and then traveling the world, realizing exhibitions, working with different institutions, finally coming to the place he is at in his life and work right now – a place of freedom and the opportunity to access new territories.
