Cover picture for the articleInterdisciplinary French-Algerian artist Kader Attia has been chosen to curate the Twelfth Berlin Biennale, scheduled to take place in 2022. The appointment was revealed on social media; no venues have yet been announced for the event, nor has Attia issued an official statement. He is the first solo artist to helm the biennial since the 2012 edition, which was curated by Polish artist Artur Żmijewski; last year’s edition, one of the few such events to take place in 2020, was curated by an intergenerational group of female-identifying South American curators: María Berríos, Renata Cervetto, Lisette Lagnado, and Agustín Pérez Rubio. Attia was selected by an international committee including artist Yael Bartana; KW Insititute director Krist Gruijthuijsen; and Gabi Ngcob, who curated the biennial’s 2017 iteration.
