Doreen Mende (*1976) is a curator and theorist who lives in Berlin and London. She submitted her practice-based PhD in Curatorial/Knowledge at Goldsmiths, entitled “The Itinerant,” which addresses the geopolitics of exhibiting. It departs from the complication of image production/distribution as a practice of solidarity with liberation movements during the period of socialist internationalism (particularly addressing the relations between Middle East, North-Africa and Europe) for the purpose to re-think today’s spatialities in exhibiting. Current projects include an exhibition on Capitalist Realism with the work of KP Brehmer for Raven Row in London in Fall 2014; and and a collaborative research/project with Milica Tomic, Armin Linke, The Otolith Group, Theo Eshetu, among others, which aims to trace resonances from the Non-Aligned Movement with its potentialities, failures as well as problems in the era of globalisation and the 21st century. Mende is co-founder of the magazine DISPLAYER at HfG/ZKM Karlsruhe. In 2010, she received the Justus Bier Preis for Curators. Since 2010, she is faculty member of the Dutch Art Institute.
