Stefanie Hessler

Stefanie Hessler is a curator and writer from Germany currently based in Stockholm, and founder of smallworldsproject. The idea arose from her experience of working with exhibitions in Germany, Sweden, Chile and Brazil and the wish to connect these different (art) worlds with one other. Stefanie has published articles in several books and magazines. During the 2010 Bienal de São Paulo, she initiated and wrote the blog “Studio Visits” for the Goethe-Institut in São Paulo – a passion she continues with this website.


Stefanie is the co-founder of the art space Andquestionmark in Stockholm (with Carsten Höller) and initiator of the series “Jour Fixe”, a regular meeting of experiencing art, food, drinks and conversations at home. Recent curated projects include the exhibition “Outside” at Index – The Swedish Contemporary Art Foundation with a film screening at Moderna Museet in Stockholm; “Klara Lidén: The Myth of Progress (Moonwalk)” at Lugar a Dudas in Cali; “The Return of the Object” at Invaliden1 in Berlin; “Love Triangle” at the Goethe-Institut and Instituto Cervantes Stockholm; “Marjetica Potrč. Caracas: Dry Toilet” at Die Ecke Arte Contemporáneo in Santiago de Chile; and the festival and symposium “Performing Recalcitrance” at the Royal Institute of Art Stockholm. In 2009, she worked in the curatorial team of the 9th Biennial of Video and Media Arts at the Museum of  Contemporary Art in Santiago de Chile.  Stefanie holds a Master of Arts degree in “Curating Art” from Stockholm University and a Bachelor of Arts degree from Zeppelin University in Friedrichshafen, Germany. She regularly writes for Contributor Magazine and has published articles in several exhibition catalogs, for instance for the Museum of Contemporary Art in Santiago de Chile and Museum DKM in Duisburg, and co-edited books such as “Máquina de Escrever / Typewriter” published by Capacete São Paulo and “Katja Aglert: Winter Event – antifreeze” published by Art & Theory Stockholm. Upcoming projects include exhibitions at the Mamam – Museu de Arte Moderna Aloísio Magalhães in Recife, Casa do Povo in São Paulo, and the 8th Momentum Nordic Biennial for Contemporary Art in Moss.
