Tina Plokarz is a curator and writer living and working in Philadelphia. She is interested in the intersection between visual and dramatic arts – particularly artistic practices that challenge the human understanding of spatiality, participation and perception in the context of historical and cultural realities.
She currently is Assistant Curator at Philadelphia Contemporary, a multi-disciplinary platform for visual and performance art. Her writing has appeared in magazines and exhibition catalogs such as “Hamish Fulton – Walking Transformation” (2014) or “Obsessionen und Surreale Welten” [Obsessions and Surreal Worlds] (2015). Before relocating to the US she previously worked on curatorial and research projects at a variety of international institutions in Germany, including KW Institute for Contemporary Art (Berlin), Villa Merkel (Esslingen) and Max Planck Institute for the History of Science (Berlin). She received a double major in Art History and Theater Studies from the Free University Berlin, Germany.
