Beatrice von Bormann is curator of art 1860-1960 at the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam and mounted the exhibition Maria Lassnig - Ways of Being. At the moment, she is preparing a number of projects for 2021, including an exhibition exploring the work of German Expressionists Emil Nolde and Ernst Ludwig Kirchner and their specific relationship with ethnographic art, considered from a post-colonial perspective. The presentation is a co-production with the Statens Museum in Copenhagen.
