Simona Dvorák

Interdependent curator and art historian

Simona Dvorák is an interdependent curator and art historian based in Paris, France. In her practice, she employs performative, sound and video formats specific to the territorial and temporal context with the valorization of long-term collective work. She investigates how we can create spaces of communality in the cultural sphere, most notably as a curator for the Initiative for Practices and Visions of Radical Care, founded by Nataša Petrešin-Bachelez and Elena Sorokina.  

She works on creating frameworks for exhibition processes that allow us to share and generate knowledge to anticipate possible—antisexist, anti-racist, inclusive—futures. More recently, she was also a fellow of documenta fifteen’s Art and Education programme in Kassel, Germany, and collaborated with Biljana Ćirić and Balkan…Projects on the conception of the public programme Walking with Water, imagined in relation to the Serbian Pavilion at the 59th Venice Biennale. She is currently in charge of programming at the Culture and Creation Department of the Centre Pompidou in Paris. She is also guest curator jointly with Tadeo Kohan for the exhibition and public programme of the 2023 season of the Maison Populaire in Montreuil (Paris).
