CELICA FITZ

Celica Fitz (she/her) is a curator and interdisciplinary researcher on contemporary art and culture, currently working in the curatorial team of Studio Bettina Pelz. Until 2022, she worked as a research associate and lecturer at University of Marburg organizing conferences, workshops and academic publications as well as curating site specific projects, performances and exhibitions with contemporary art.

Her research in art history is focused on modern and contemporary art as well as museology and the analysis of exhibitions as producers of artistic, curatorial and scientific knowledge. Also graduated in the Study of Religion she is interested in how individual worldviews are materialized, reflected or constructed within art. She explores this field in practice by curating and theoretically in her interdisciplinary Ph.D in Museology and Art History at Neuchâtel.ch and in the Study of Religions at Marburg.de.

In the .KLSP project she currently works in the curatorial collective, co-developing ideas for art projects and exhibitions, but is mainly a web host and writer. She writes about contemporary art, interviews artists and curators, and coordinates the DIVERSITY VISITS and ACCEPT – ALLOW – AGREE events. The event series engages queer art and curating, both cooperating with local art institutions and museums and discussing the topic with an international team of curators, researchers, activists and artists from Leeuwarden and Groningen.nl, Tunis and Sfax.tn as well as Strážná.cz.

As a curator, researcher and author she is interested in intersections: junctions of art and sciences; exchange with different disciplines; combining ways of thinking, seeing and displaying; exchanging international perspectives and the plurality of processes of meaning-making in contemporary art and exhibitions.

Lives, works, studies and researches in Germany and Switzerland.
