Raimundas Malašauskas

Raimundas Malašauskas is a curator and writer. His curatorial work is shaped by the belief in creativity of the public. He has presented art exhibitions through hypnosis séances —his ongoing Hypnotic Show—and variety performances, such as in his ongoing Clifford Irving Show. His writing combines his interest in contemporary art, music, doubling, food, history, science, his native Lithuania and time travel, among other subjects. Malašauskas recently worked as one of the agents of dOCUMENTA(13), this summer in Kassel. Previous to this, he was curator of the Satellite exhibition series at the Jeu de Paume Museum in Paris in 2010-2011; a curator at Artists Space, New York in 2007-2009; and, visiting curator at California College of the Arts, San Francisco in 2007 to 2008. Since 2011, he teaches at the Sandberg Art Institute in Amsterdam. From 1995 to 2006, Malašauskas worked at the Contemporary Art Centre in Vilnius, where he curated numerous exhibitions, including the IX Baltic Triennial, Black Market Worlds (2005). There, he also produced the first two seasons of the weekly television show CAC TV, an experimental merger of commercial television and contemporary art, which ran under the slogan: “Every program is a pilot, every program is the final episode.”
