Suzanne Page (SP): I don’t like to put myself into the spotlight, but I like to illuminate the backstage. What I suggest is actually very demanding. It takes an effort not to emphasize your own subjectivity, and to let the art itself be at the center. The real power, the only one worth fighting for, is the power of art itself… The curator should be like a dervish who circles around the artworks. There has to be complete certainty on the part of the dancer for it all to begin, but once the dance has started it has nothing to do with power or control. To a certain degree it is a question of learning to be vulnerable, of remaining open to the vision of the artist. Daniel Birnbaum (DB): This reminds me of what Walter Benjamin writes in Childhood in Berlin, where he says that it takes a lot of exercise if you want to learn how to really get lost in a city. SP: Yes, what I’m after is a form of concentration that suddenly turns into its opposite, being available for a true alternative adventure.
