Abstract: Swiss art curator Harald Szeemann (1933-2005) organized more than 150 exhibitions during a career that spanned almost five decades. An advocate of movements such as conceptualism, land art, happenings, Fluxus and performance, and of artists such as Joseph Beuys, Richard Serra, Cy Twombly and Mario Merz, Szeemann developed a new form of exhibition-making that centered on close collaborative relationships with artists and a sweeping global vision of contemporary visual culture. He organized vast international surveys such as documenta 5, as well as retrospectives of individual artists including Sigmar Polke, Bruce Nauman, Wolfgang Laib, James Ensor, and Eugène Delacroix, and thematic exhibitions on such provocative topics as utopia, disaster, and the "Plateau of Humankind." His papers thoroughly document his curatorial practice, including preliminary notes for many projects, written descriptions and proposals for exhibitions, installation sketches, photographic documentation, research files, and extensive correspondence with colleagues, artists and collaborators. At this time, only Series I. Project files, Series II. Artist files and Series IV. Photographs are available for research. The remainder of the archive is unprocessed. Each series will be opened for use as processing is completed.

Biographical / Historical Note

Among the most influential art curators of his generation, Harald Szeemann (Swiss, 1933-2005) organized more than 150 exhibitions during a career that spanned almost five decades. He studied art history, archaeology and journalism in Bern and Paris and had a brief, but successful, theatrical career before he organized his first exhibition in 1957. In 1961 at the age of 28 he became one of the youngest museum directors in the world when he was appointed to head the Kunsthalle Bern. From 1961 to 1966, Szeemann was also in charge of the exhibition program at the Städtische Galerie Biel. Szeemann gained prominence through a lively and experimental series of exhibitions that included early projects with Robert Rauschenberg, Andy Warhol, James Rosenquist, and Christo. In addition to showcasing current developments in contemporary art such as kinetic art, op art, and happenings, Szeemann also examined areas of early twentieth-century modernism such as Dada and surrealism, including artists such as Marcel Duchamp, Kazimir Malevich, and Vassily Kandinsky, as well as various fields of visual culture such as Art Brut, science fiction and religious iconography.
Following his 1969 exhibition Live in Your Head: When Attitudes Become Form, a sprawling and controversial international survey of postminimalism and Arte Povera, Szeemann left the Kunsthalle Bern to become an independent curator. Calling his business the Agentur für geistige Gastarbeit, or "Agency for Spiritual Guest-Labor," Szeemann developed a new form of exhibition-making that centered on close collaborative relationships with artists and a sweeping global vision of contemporary visual culture, aided by a pioneering vision of fundraising. Because he traveled extensively and frequently, he was able to integrate emerging developments from disparate parts of the world into exhibitions that became touchstones of their time.
Taking on the organization of documenta 5 in 1972, Szeemann transformed the exhibition into a vast and dynamic survey of young artists from across the world. Likewise, when asked to co-direct the Venice Biennale in 1980, the curator introduced a new concept that became a mainstay of the Biennale: the "Aperto," an international and multigenerational group exhibition that contrasted with the Biennale's traditional focus on national representations. He continued to survey art-making from all parts of the world in the biennials he later organized in Lyon, Seville, and Gwangju, as well as when he returned to the Venice Biennale in both 1999 and 2001. Szeemann often tackled enormous themes that cut across regions and spanned the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, with a stunningly original approach, as in his trilogy The Bachelor Machines (1975), Monte Verità: The breasts of truth (1978), and Tendency towards the Gesamtkunstwerk (1983), meant to give a visual account of the three main myths which, in his opinion, informed twentieth-century culture. Exhibitions focused on topics such as utopia, disaster, and the "Plateau of Humankind" offered sweeping and provocative surveys, while exhibitions such as Visionary Switzerland (1991), Austria in a Net of Roses (1996), Blood and Honey: the Future Lies in the Balkans (2003) and La Belgique Visionnaire België: C'est arrivé près de chez nous (2005) aimed at examining narrower topics and regions in interdisciplinary depth. Szeemann was also active on a local level in Ticino, Switzerland, where he organized several exhibitions and worked on various museum projects, among which Casa Anatta on Monte Verità, devoted to the history of the early 20th-century colony of anarchists, artists and life reformers, is to be counted among his greatest achievements.
During his collaboration with Kunsthaus Zürich (1981-2000), Szeemann also became known for producing definitive survey exhibitions of individual artists, not only on contemporary artists such as Joseph Beuys, Georg Baselitz, and Bruce Nauman, but also on cultural icons such as Charles Baudelaire, Alfred Jarry and Egon Schiele. Szeemann's mid-1980s contemporary sculpture group exhibitions included Traces, Sculptures and Monuments of Their Precise Journey (1985) and De Sculptura (1986). He referred to these as "poems in space," and investigated the "breathing space" between artworks and within the exhibition venue. From that time onwards, he often embarked on big projects set in historical buildings including Deichtorhallen in Hamburg, Halle Tony Garnier in Lyon, and the Arsenale in Venice. It was the first time these locations showed contemporary art exhibitions.
Even when collaborating with big institutions, Szeemann relied on the same team of independent partners for the technical aspects, believing that "only tribes survive." Long-term friends and coworkers include his wife Ingeborg Lüscher and daughter Una Szeemann, his son Jérôme Szeemann who was in charge of installation, architect Christoph Zürcher, model designer Peter Bissegger, and Josy Kraft who was in charge of transportation and storage.
Szeemann began his personal archive in the late 1960s when, leaving the Kunsthalle Bern, he decided to bring a substantial part of the exhibition documentation with him. The archive grew significantly over the decades. Szeemann kept all documents and research material related to his projects, including all correspondence sent or received. The archive is not only a resource for the study of Szeemann's exhibitions, activities and interests, but is also an invaluable trove of rare gallery and museum ephemera such as invitation cards, press releases and posters from the 1960s to the 2000s. Previously scattered between Bern and Ticino, in the mid-1980s Szeemann permanently housed the entirety of the archive in a former watch factory in the village of Maggia, in Ticino, which Szeemann called the "Fabbrica Rosa" or "Pink Factory."
The result of almost 50 years of professional activity, the archive might be considered as one of Szeemann's main achievements. Both a physical office and a tool for retrieving information, it functioned also as an instrument of self-representation, ranging from his high school years and theatrical experiments to his "Museum of Obsessions." The archive also afforded Szeemann the opportunity to personally write and partially rectify the history of his own professional life, and it is possible to trace examples of concealment through intentional "misfiling" of exhibitions he felt were unsatisfactory. The importance the Fabbrica Rosa played in the Szeemann's understanding of his own career is demonstrated by the fact that Szeemann had planned to retire from exhibition-making in 2006 and focus all his energies on the reordering of this archive. Unfortunately he died unexpectedly in 2005 at the age of 71.

Acquisition Information

Acquired in 2011.

Processing History

In 2012 and 2013 with grant funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), Holly Deakyne, Pietro Rigolo, Alexis Adkins, Alice Poulalion and Melanie Tran processed and cataloged Series I. The records were rehoused into archival containers from the boxes, plastic cartons and ringed binders in which they were found, and the original organization of the materials within these containers was retained. When possible, records from boxes of unsorted or unlabeled materials were identified and added to the end of the appropriate project.
In 2013 and 2014 with grant funding from the NEH, Deakyne, Rigolo, Adkins, Heather Courtney, B. Karenina Karyadi, Emmabeth Nanol, Elena Salza, Laura Schroffel and Isabella Zuralski processed and cataloged Series II. The records were rehoused into archival containers from the wine boxes and manila folders in which they were found, and the original organization of the materials within these containers was retained. When possible, records from boxes of unsorted or unlabeled materials were identified and added to the appropriate artist.
Adkins, Schroffel, Medria Martin and Emmabeth Nanol processed and cataloged Series IV under the supervision of Andra Darlington. Szeemann's original organization of the material was retained, and previously unfiled items were integrated into the orginal order whenever possible.
Conservation treatment for some of the photographs was done by Mark Benson and Teresa Mesquit. Nitrate negatives were rehoused by Adkins in consultation with Mesquit and are permanently restricted.
The series are being processed out of order, with Series IV processed first, followed by Series I and II. As a result, the box numbers are non-sequential.

Digital Collection

Selected photographs are being digitized and made available online. Connect to selected digitized images from Series IV. Photographs, 1892-2007.  

Related Materials

Prior to the acquisition of the collection by the Getty Research Institute, some of the materials related to Monte Verità were separated by Harald Szeemann and given to the Fondazione Monte Verità in Ascona, Switzerland. The link to information about these materials is at http://www.monteverita.org/en/92/fondo-harald-szeemann.aspx .

Scope and Content of Collection

Harald Szeemann's vast archive documents his career as a visionary art curator for almost five decades, from 1957 to 2005. Included are project files tracing the development of numerous exhibitions and other projects, extensive correspondence with noted artists and cultural figures throughout the world, photographic documentation of exhibitions and artworks, video art and recorded interviews, exhibition announcements and other ephemera from hundreds of museums and galleries, research files on a broad range of topics, a small group of personal papers, and business records. Only the project files in Series I, artist files in Series II, and the photographic material in Series IV are open for research at this time. The remainder of the archive is unprocessed. Each series will be opened for research as processing is completed.
Series I documents Szeemann's curatorial process from conception to installation, including his detailed notes, installation sketches, correspondence, building plans, exhibition announcements and checklists, wall texts, research material, and documents related to the production of didactic material, framing, and shipping. Some projects have files on the individual artists in the exhibition, and there is crossover with Series II. It also includes material related to other projects such as films, books, texts, seminars, lectures and awards ceremonies. Also documented are exhibitions Szeemann co-curated, for which he was consultant, or to which he contributed writings. The files were organized by Szeemann in chronological order, with unrealized projects integrated into the series.
Series II contains artist files on more than 20,000 artists. While many files contain only one or two items, other files include artist correspondence, unique works of art, rare posters, and limited-edition items along with exhibition announcements and press clippings. Some exhibition records were relocated to the artist files by Szeemann, so there is crossover with Series I. Artist files are not limited to fine artists, but also include authors, musicians, filmmakers, and other creators. Szeemann accrued particularly extensive files on Joseph Beuys, James Lee Byars, Marcel Duchamp, Mario Merz, Antonin Artaud and Hugo Ball.
Series IV contains more than 40,500 photographic prints, negatives, slides, and transparencies. Included is extensive documentation of many of Szeemann's exhibitions and other projects; photographs of artists with whom he worked and their individual artworks and performances; a collection of portraits of the Monte Verità intellectual circle by photographer Margarethe Fellerer; Szeemann's slide library, including slideshows compiled for lectures; collections of photographs reflecting Szeemann's interdisciplinary subject interests with a focus on cultural sites and geographic locations; and portraits and snapshots of Szeemann and his family.
Series III and Series V-X are unprocessed. They will be opened for research when processing is complete. Series III contains Szeemann's files on and correspondence with other curators and art world figures. Series V contains records on his professional activities as a board member, art consultant, or university faculty member. Series VI contains hundreds of video recordings and some audio recordings, including video art, taped interviews and other documentation. In Series VII are Szeemann's research files on topics as disparate as dance and pataphysics. Series VIII contains the museum and gallery ephemera Szeemann acquired from hundreds of institutions around the world. His personal files in Series IX include correspondence with family and a small number of his school projects. Among Szeemann's business files in Series X are many years' worth of bank statements and other financial records.

Arrangement

The collection is arranged in ten series: Series I. Project files; Series II. Artist files; Series III. Curator files; Series IV. Photographs; Series V. Professional activities; Series VI. Video; Series VII. Topical; Series VIII. Ephemera; Series IX. Personal papers; Series X. Business files.

Physical Description: 338.7 linear feet (650 boxes and 107 flatfiles)

Scope and Content Note

This series documents Harald Szeemann's curatorial process from conception to installation. In addition to his own known exhibitions, there are also records from unrealized exhibitions, exhibitions Szeemann co-curated, was consulted on, or to which he contributed writings for the catalog. Projects or exhibitions from which he resigned are also included, such as documenta 7 and documenta 8. There are materials related to other projects such as films, books and other publications, interviews given, seminars, lectures, surveys taken, and awards for which he was a jurist. Near the beginning of the series are Szeemann's illustrated notebooks from high school, papers from college, his dissertation, and documents of his early theatrical career, which Szeemann designates as projects by filing here.
Materials in the series include detailed notes, installation sketches, correspondence, building plans, exhibition announcements and checklists, loan agreements, brochures, catalogs, wall texts, research material, and documents related to the production of didactic material, framing, and shipping. Any photographic material associated with the papers have been kept in this series. Folders, envelopes or other containers found with only photographic material have been transferred to Series IV. Photographs. Groups of records regarding Szeemann's long-term participation on committees or boards have been moved to Series V. Professional activities. Szeemann also kept complete copies of books and periodicals with his project files. These have been moved to the General Collections and can be found by searching the Library Catalog  for the "Harald Szeemann Collection." Additional copies of catalogs for his exhibitions have been retained with the archival papers.
Szeemann corresponded over a long period of time via exchange of mail art with Johan van Geluwe, director of the (fictional) Museum of Museums. Folders that include mail art are noted when it is not apparent in the title. The majority of exhibition titles are listed by the English translation found in Tobia Bezzola and Roman Kurzmeyer (ed.), Harald Szeemann with by through towards despite, Catalogue of all Exhibitions 1957-2005 (Zürich: Edition Voldemeer; Wien; New York: Springer, 2007), followed by the original title in parentheses and the date of exhibition. This book was written in collaboration with Szeemann, and it is assumed he had input into the correct way to express the titles in English. Projects and exhibition titles not listed in the book were not translated into English.
Titles for folder contents are direct translations when the folder had a title given by Szeemann. When a label could not be read or translated, it was retained in the archive with the records. If a folder was not titled by Szeemann, the archivist has provided a title that is descriptive of the contents. Records found loose, not in a folder or envelope, between folders or at the front or back of a carton of folders are designated as "loose" in brackets. Szeemann frequently titled folders "Diverse" and "Reliquien." These titles have been translated as "Assorted" and "Souvenirs" respectively. The difference between them is slight, as both contain an assortment of items. "Assorted" files primarily include press clippings or correspondence. It was difficult to interpret what Szeemann meant by reliquien. The contents could be mementos, souvenirs or other ephemera from exhibitions, projects, or entire years. "Souvenirs" can include event tickets, passes and brochures, notes, doodles and sketches and appointment books.

Arrangement note

The arrangement reflects Szeemann's original organization of his project files. The series is arranged chronologically by the opening date of an exhibition. The dates of the material may not be the same as the date of a project, and Szeemann frequently worked on projects for years in advance of their opening. This is especially important to note for all of his documenta and Venice Biennale records. Exhibitions that toured are arranged according to the opening date of the first installation. Unrealized exhibitions are placed in the year most prevalent in the records.
Szeemann kept his files in plastic cartons and three-ring binders. The groupings of folders from the cartons have been arranged as closely to chronological as possible. The sections of "Assorted" files have been arranged at the end of each year. "Unfiled" refers to papers not originally grouped with the Project files, but identified as pertaining to exhibitions and other projects by specialists and the archivist. These are at the very end of each project or "Assorted" section.
When Szeemann worked on more than one project simultaneously, the resulting files are interspersed. As a result, files pertaining to the same project may be separated by files on a different project. For example, a group of folders from documenta 8 are housed with a group of folders from Tendency towards the Gesamtkunstwerk. The earlier exhibition files are frequently interspersed with other assorted project files. As the exhibitions began generating more extensive records, sections of "Assorted" become more distinct, and Szeemann grouped them together by year.
Box 268-275, 826, 829

General correspondence

Scope and Content Note

These materials, rehoused into folders from the original binders, includes correspondence from alphabetically arranged binders spanning from around the early 1960s to the late 1970s. The topics in these binders encompass many exhibitions during this time span including When Attitudes Become Form, documenta 5, and Happening & Fluxus. Prominent correspondents represented include Arnold Bode, Christo and Jeanne-Claude, Jean Dubuffet, Ger van Elk, Philip Glass, Red Grooms, Edward Kienholz, Piotr Kowalski, Victor Loeb, and Bruce Nauman. The binder containing "A" was not present. It is possible the materials were refiled by Szeemann during his reorganization of the archive.
 

Original documents

Scope and Content Note

Materials rehoused from a binder include correspondence, artwork, and other records related to exhibitions from the 1960s to the early 1970s. It is organized alphabetically.

Art Brut drawings

Scope and Content Note

Outsider art, and in particular the art of psychiatric patients, represented a constant interest for Szeemann throughout his career. This collection of over one hundred drawings was assembled in or around 1974. At this same time, Szeemann was planning the publication of the writings by Adolf Wölfli and an exhibition devoted to his Museum of Obsessions, in which outsider art would have played a central role. It is unknown for which project he collected these drawings. The original box was labeled "Dessins Art Brut." One sketchbook has a stamp of "Dr. med. M. Sucharenko, Kranken u. Pflegeheim, Muri/AG Schweiz." Sections of drawings are enveloped by newspaper and given alphanumeric identifications.
