Painting by Robert Bechtle.
April Elizabeth Lamm is a writer and curator who has been based in Berlin since 1998. Since curating the exhibition “Anonym: In the Future No One Will Be Famous” (November 2006 to January 2007) at the Schirn Kunsthalle, Frankfurt, she has been working on a collection of short stories called The Ministry of Leisure and is co-authoring an art-world novel with Stefan Heidenreich called The Collector. Her next exhibition “Zimmerreise” – which attempts to answer the question “What would happen if Europeans were never to return home from summer holidays at the beach?” – is loosely based on a short story by J.G. Ballard. Selected texts can be found at: http://boone-broodthaers.blogspot.com/
