Fatima Hellberg

MA work

I am a London-based curator and writer whose practice gravitates towards questions of self-organisation, strategies of disobedience and forms of productivity and labour in relation to delay. For me, artistic production is at once situated within the political and social terms of its making, while simultaneously hinting towards a more ambiguous and parallel playing field. As part of a small team making up contemporary art agency Electra, I have curated and / or produced projects including Dirty Literature, National Portrait Gallery; 27 Senses, Chisenhale Gallery; Offer and Exchange and the upcoming project Practical Utopias.
