About the Author

CLEMENTINE DELISS (*1960) achieved international renown as a cultural historian, publisher, and curator. As the Director of the Weltkulturen Museum in Frankfurt, curator of the KW Berlin, and as a researcher and teacher at prominent institutes, transdisciplinary exchanges in contemporary art are at the center of her work. She is Associate Curator of KW, Berlin and visiting professor at the Academy of Arts, Hamburg.


Connecting to reflections on her own work as the director of the Frankfurt Weltkulturen Museum with discussions of filmmakers, artists and authors to argue for an entity she calls the Metabolic Museum?an interventionist laboratory that opens up the potential of anthropological collections for the future.--Holiday Powers "New Books Network"
In The Metabolic Museum, Clementine Deliss, since last year an associate curator at the Institute for Contemporary Art in Berlin, outlines her radical curatorial vision and chronicles her attempts to transform the Weltkulturen Museum from a moribund storehouse of artifacts into a laboratory and educational center for critical engagement with the material cultures of non-European societies.--Coco Fusco "New York Review of Books"
