:::: CURATOR'S BIO ::::

Through curating and writing, Frederikke Hansen has been engaging feminist and queer politics within Western contemporary art since the mid-1990s. Situating herself and her practice in a critical dialogue with fellow cultural workers and activists, she is steadily developing a curatorial methodology that is consistent with her social and ethico-political principles. In short, her principles and practice could be described as deconstructing privilege. Part of that process entailed emigrating from increasingly xenophobic and right-leaning Denmark and settling in Kreuzberg, Berlin in 1997 and, eight years later, founding the curatorial platform Kuratorisk Aktion together with Tone Olaf Nielsen.

Hansen has been involved in running and curating several independent art spaces, including LXX (Aarhus), Galleri Campbells Occasionally (Copenhagen), and Frø (Berlin). From 2000-04, she was working as curator at the Shedhalle in Zurich, Switzerland and from 2005-06 she worked as co-curator at NIFCA, Nordic Institute for Contemporary Art in Helsinki, Finland.
