insitu is a curatorial initiative and non-profit space for contemporary art in Berlin, founded in 2012. The name insitu refers to the team’s understanding of curatorial practice as being necessarily «in situ» in terms of cultural, social and geographical spaces. insitu designs its program in annual Cycles, which provide a thematic focus for the upcoming exhibitions and various events of the year. This cyclical structure provides insitu with the opportunity to ask new questions each year. Together with the invited artists and guest curators, insitu delves into different approaches to artistic work and curatorial processes. The upcoming Cycle IV at insitu consists of three exhibitions, which will begin with a decisive historical turning point, related to scientific discoveries or notorious events in history. The shows will function as an unfolding narrative that provides a special exhibition-viewing experience. Viewers will not only be taken through the significant elements of the event and time period, but will also be drawn into the sensations and emotions of an experience: momentarily stepping into the shoes of the one who pioneered a situation.
The insitu team consists of the four curators Marie Graftieaux, Nora Mayr, Gilles Neiens and Lauren Reid.
