Jana Franze, curator of the exhibition “The Sky Opens Twice,” will lead interested individuals through the pictorial worlds of Peles Empire. Visitors will learn more about the conception and implementation of the exhibition and also about curatorial practice at the Künstlerhaus. Aside from background information on the origins of this Berlin artists’ group and their symbiotic working approach, the art scholar will elucidate the art-historical references that can be discovered in the work of Peles Empire.

Jana Franze M.A. (*1986 Salzgitter, lives in Graz) is a junior curator at the Künstlerhaus, Halle für Kunst & Medien. She studied art and media at Braunschweig University of Art. In 2014, she completed her degree with a research focus on contemporary art, visual culture, and visual war reporting. Ever since, Jana Franze’s work as a freelance and institution-based curator and author has revolved around art production and discourses of modernity and the present, their reception, and exhibition-related communication. She has worked at the Kunstverein Hannover, the National Gallery in Prague, the Wilhelm Hack Museum in Ludwigshafen, and the Kunsthalle Mannheim.
