Kris Dittel is a Rotterdam-based (in)dependent curator and editor, also associate at Onomatopee publishing house and project space. Her work is informed by an interest in forms of communication, the relation between economics and language, and systems of value in art. In the past years she was the editor of several publications, exploring the format of the book as medium.

During her residency at ARC Bucharest curator and editor Kris Dittel will get an introduction to the artistic landscape of Bucharest, Cluj-Napoca and Timișoara. In the course of meeting with artists and art professionals she will share her most recent research project The Trouble with Value, dealing with a spectrum of aspects of contemporary arts’ relation to symbolic and monetary value creation. In relation to this latest project she is investigating the notion of value of artistic labour. The project is produced in collaboration with Bunkier Sztuki, Krakow, Poland (2017) and Onomatopee, Eindhoven, The Netherlands (2018).
