Dr. Clémentine Deliss is Global Humanities Professor of History of Art at the University of Cambridge, and Associate Curator at KW Institute for Contemporary Art in Berlin, where she directs the Metabolic Museum-University and is preparing the exhibition, Skin in the Game, opening September 2023. Her practice crosses the borders of contemporary art, critical anthropology, curatorial experimentation, and publishing. Between 2010–2015, she directed the Weltkulturen Museum in Frankfurt instituting a new lab for post-ethnographic research and the remediation of contentious collections. She is a Fellow of the Institute of Advanced Study in Berlin and has taught art theory and curatorial practice at the Ecole nationale supérieur Paris-Cergy, Karlsruhe University of Arts and Design, and Hamburg University of the Arts. She is Faculty at Large of SVA Curatorial Practice in New York, and Guest Mentor of the Berlin Program for Artists. Her book The Metabolic Museum was published by Hatje Cantz in co-production with KW (2020), in Russian (Garage Museum, 2021) and is coming out in Spanish translation in late 2022. Forthcoming essays include Enigmatic Debris (L’Internationale online), The Practice of Academic Iconoclasm in the Metabolic Museum-University (ZhdK), and texts on Bjarne Melgaard, Luke Willis Thompson, Kader Attia, and Atta Kwami.
