Bernard Schütze is an independent curator, art critic and theorist based in Montreal. As a writer he has contributed to magazines, catalogues, artist monographs and various contemporary art events in Canada, the US and Europe. This writing practice is both the trigger and extension of his curatorial projects, which often consist of a publication component. It is along these lines that he organized “The Unknown Artist”, a series of exhibitions/performances and a book project presented at Centre des Arts Actuels Skol in Montreal from January to May, 2011. Other curatorial endeavors include: the multimedia installation “Post-Audio NetLab” by the artist Gennaro de Pasquale”, presented at the Observatori festival in Valencia, Spain (2007); co-curatorship of “Le catalogue des vents qui ont soufflé”, a commemorative exhibition of works by Patrice Duhamel, presented at the Centre Clark in 2012. Schütze's current research explores the techno-scientific inflections of animality and how it is reflected, explored, critiqued and/or anticipated in current visual arts practice.
