Agentur in Transit

The project space Agentur was founded and directed by the curator, researcher and artist Karin Christof. With a changing team of co-curators Karin Christof aimed to identify new artistic tendencies within the contemporary artworld(s) in a cosmopolitan place as Amsterdam. For each part of the programming, Karin Christof chose a suitable cultural location and partner to temporarily collaborate with, thus moving across different cultural entities in town.

Agentur in Transit
was established to serve as a platform for artist and curators to showcase and discuss their work in an informal and salon-like setting, open for discussion and social discourse. From 2004 till 2010 Agentur was part of ResArtis, providing an international Artist-in-Residence for artists as well as curators and researchers.


Duet for Cannibals
Duet for Cannibals was a proposal by the curator Inti Guerrero (CO) that was chosen at an Open Call initiated and organized by Agentur. The program Duet for Cannibals took place from January till April 2010, with a series of films, videos & talks at the Tropentheater, in collaboration with the Royal Tropical Institute of Amsterdam.
