Dear IKT Members,
The year is coming to an end and we hope that you will have a moment to slow down and get prepared for the upcoming year. IKT is looking back at a year of changes: With the election of the new board the IKT office moved from Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein to Kunsthalle Osnabrück and Johanna Schindler, IKT’s assistant for three successful years, handed her tasks over to Franziska Finke.
Furthermore, new board member Vanessa Müller has put together an intriguing programme for the upcoming IKT Congress in Vienna, which will be hosted by Kunsthalle Wien (April 23rd – April 26th 2015). As Vienna disposes of toomany treasures of art and three days are too short to satisfy all the different expectations our members might have, this year we will offer alternative programmes to which you can subscribe to by the beginning of next year. As agreed upon during the last General Assembly in Londonderry, the post-congress programme will be held in Budapest and Bratislava, organized in collaboration with board member Katalin Timar and new IKT member Juraj Carny (April 27th – 29th , 2015). You will find the preliminaryversion of the programme below.
We will open the registration for the IKT Congress in the first days of January. With the invite to subscribe for the Congress you will receive as well a list of hotels in which we have reserved a number of rooms with special rates for IKT members. Just as for previous congresses, IKT will give six Harald Szeemann Grants to members, who could not attend the congress otherwise. We ask those of you who would like to apply for a Harald Szeemann Grant to do so immediately. The form can be downloaded below and should be returned to the IKT Board by Saturday, February 14th 2015. Please read the general rules mentioned on the form carefully before submitting it. The board will then take a decision and get back to the six laureates individually.
We are looking forward to meeting you in Vienna and send you our best wishes for the remaining
part of 2014,
The IKT Board
