Together, we collaborate as a curatorial collective under the name moss, sustained by our distinct professional experience in various institutions, galleries and independent art spaces. In our shared practice we seek to embrace an ever-shifting collective identity, that allows us to adapt organically to conceive context-specific projects. We value horizontal collaboration with artists in which symbiotic exchange is indispensable. As curators, we deliberately choose to consider codependency as an asset, and we assert this vulnerability – the need for others – as a strength in a competitive context.
