Dr. Ariane Karbe
My ambition and passion is to develop exhibitions which provide intellectual pleasures and entertaining experiences – reaching thus the head and the heart of the audiences.
I do this by help of stories.
Stories are content and expression. Facts and magic. Enlightment and emotion.
What is special: I consistently understand exhibitions themselves as stories. This enables me to use the wealth of experience in other storytelling arts for my work. I especially use script-writing techniques.
Regardless of whether I curate, advise or research, I always focus on the question:
How to tell a good exhibition?
The audience is always at the center of my efforts. Because, as dramaturg and theatre scholar Martin Esslin puts it: ‘If you lose their attention, if you fail to make them concentrate on what is happening, on what is being said, all is lost.‘
