Presentation Format

2017 – ongoing
Various Locations

A Desktop Exhibition is a public presentation on a desktop, conducted on a laptop, a private screen. It is a presentation format developed by Matylda Krzykowski, shortly after closing the physical space of Depot Basel. The curator clicks through files on a desktop, simulating a guide who walks visitors through the physical space of an exhibition.

In October 2017 Matylda Krzykowski presented the first Desktop Exhibition at Is Technology Sexist?,  a conference curated by Chus Martinez at Institut Kunst, Basel.

Have you seen the presentation of the first speaker on the technology and gender conference? She curated various files onto her desktop background and called it an exhibition.

Present like a Pro, an article by Hilke Ludwigs about the Dektop Exhibition.
