Brussels-based, Lithuanian-born Raimundas Malasauskas recently made waves as he resigned as the curator of the Russian Pavilion of the 59th Venice Biennale amidst Russia’s attacks on Ukraine but he is known for much more. In his own words, Raimundas “curates in the world, writes occasionally”, a humble statement that doesn’t do him justice. From producing a TV show for the Contemporary Art Center in Vilnius to co-writing a libretto for an opera, his curations and writings yield often unpredictable and playful results, focused on contemporary phenomena, stories and the parallel worlds of science, media, film, literature and mass culture. He has worked as a curator for the Contemporary Art Center in Vilnius and Artists Space in New York, and has curated exhibitions for Pompidou Center, the 55th Venice Biennale and Lisson Gallery among many others. In 2012, both his book Paper Exhibition: Selected Writings and his notebook on Burlesque for Documenta 13 were published.
