Katie Guggenheim

MA work

Prior to joining the course I was actively curating exhibitions and projects, including A History of Two Mountains/One the Original/Two A Copy/Both Equally Heavy (2007–9), The Dark Show (2008), Film Shows (2008), Menu (2009) and Melrose Place (2009), and I have collaborated regularly with the artist-run space Auto Italia South East since 2007. During my studies I have continued my independent work, editing Monaco, a magazine that I have published regularly since 2010. In addition I have been working as a researcher and editor on a publication for Tate Modern’s forthcoming programme of film and performance in the newly converted oil tanks.


I am interested in the potential of the exhibition as a format to enable the experience of interdisciplinary, time-based and non-object-based work within the institutional space of the museum, something that I was able to explore during the course of my MA through my dissertation research into Lygia Clark’s Structuring the Self (1976–88) and Robert Morris’ Bodyspacemotionthings (1971/2009), and through our final exhibition which included documentation of historical actions and performances.
