The Curator As ... is the first publication of the Cathrin Pichler Archive for Art and Sciences, which was installed at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna in 2016. The contributions of the authors collected here subject the concept of curating and the curator role of the curator to a thorough revision—against the background of the work and outlook of the Vienna-based curator Cathrin Pichler, who passed away in 2012 and who put on exhibitions like Wunderblock (1989), Der sechste Sinn (1995), :Engel :Engel (1997), Hommage à Antonin Artaud (2002), and The Moderns (2010) to realize her transdisciplinary concept that insisted on involving the history of natural sciences and literature in art-historical discourse.
