Dear <<empyreans>>, Johannes,
respectfully, isn't what you are talking about in regard to Kafka's
"where the paratextual or paramedial dimensions can emerge"
and isn't the Death of the Curator a repetition of the death of the
director, from about the '80s - it is particularly German theatre I am
thinking of, the generation of Peter Stein - ?
and in cinema in the '90s the bruited about "death of the auteur"?
In theatre it seems to me that the post-interpretative director, Robert
Wilson, epitomises a curatorial attitude/method when he becomes the
ring-master for the circus of collaborators and collaboration going on
around him, witness his work with the two Heiners, Mueller and Goebbels,
about whom there is something mismatched and yet apropos, or the great
failed project The Civil Wars - an internationally curated theatre work.
