In Memory of Peter Lang


Yesterday, on August 11th at about 9 pm, the Berlin curator, art critic, author and editor PETER LANG died unexpectedly in Munich of a heart attack. He was 56 years old.

Peter Lang was repeatedly a guest curator in our institution in the past few years. Only recently the exhibition The Mechanical Corps. On the trail of Jules Verne  co-curated by him came to a successful end.

Peter Lang was especially appreciated by the artists working with him for his amicable and resilient solidary nature and his enthusiasm for advanced questions.

Peter Lang (born 1958 in Leipzig) lived in Berlin since 1982. He studied Theoretical Physics at the Karl Marx University, Leipzig and also Cultural Studies / Aesthetics and Theatre Studies at the Humboldt University Berlin.

He will be missed.
