Katia Krupennikova, member of the Bergen Assembly 2019 core group, is a curator and art critic. She is a docent at MA HKU, 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, criticised, 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 an extended form at Württembergischer Kunstverein in Stuttgart (2017) and at Nest in The Hague (2017). In 2013–14 Krupennikova worked at the Centre for Contemporary Art Ujazdowski Castle in Warsaw.
Her recent projects include Dialogues with People, a solo show by Imogen Stidworthy co-curated with Hans D. Christ and Iris Dressler at Württembergischer Kunstverein in Stuttgart (2018–19) and It Won’t Be Long Now, Comrades!, co-curated with Inga Lāce at Framer Framed, Amsterdam (2017).
Katia Krupennikova lives and works in Amsterdam.
