Participant Profile

Georgia Muenster

United Kingdom

A New York-born and London-based independent contemporary art curator, Georgia Muenster focuses on urbanism, the future, archives, and collectivity. She has produced projects at a variety of galleries, pop-ups, museums, and theaters in the US, UK, France, Denmark, and Bulgaria. She is a longstanding member of the arts collective Flux Factory in New York.

Georgia undertook curatorial research for the ongoing project Architectonics, which explores deep geographies in the built environments. Architectonics aims to document the reality of the city and its alternate visions, going beyond the clichés of “psychogeography.” By looking closely at both private and semi-public places, the project brought to light hidden layers of the metropolis, a particularly apt concept in St. Petersburg, steeped in complex histories.
