Paz Ponce

Cádiz, España, 1985

Berlin-based independent curator. With a background in art history, she researches on the collective context in which art is produced and mediated, with a special focus on self-organization and cooperative culture, departing from the Arendtian notion of “the common interest” (Welt-Bezug). Her practice develops co-creation formats in a collaborative and networked environment in Berlin and abroad, via archival research projects, residency programs and learning platforms open to the participation of artists and communities.
