About


The Best of Keren Cytter/The Worst of Keren Cytter is the first comprehensive publication of multidisciplinary artist Keren Cytter’s video screenplays. The artist invited two curators, Jacob Fabricius, formerly of the Kunsthal Charlottenborg, and Naomi Beckwith, of the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, to read and categorize transcripts of the entire body of her video work. The curators then debated the merits of every screenplay, ultimately deeming them representative of the best or worst of her work. This softcover, two-volume publication contains essays by both curators, explaining their experience reading and categorizing the screenplays, as well as two posters depicting stills from the best and worst of the artist’s work.

This book is published by the Kunsthal Charlottenborg and the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, on the occasion of the exhibition Keren Cytter, curated and presented by Jacob Fabricius at the Kunsthal Charlottenborg, September 19–December 28, 2014; and at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, March, 28–October 4, 2015, where it was organized by Naomi Beckwith.

Scripts by Keren Cytter; edited and with contributions by Naomi Beckwith and Jacob Fabricius; and produced by the Wrong Studio, in collaboration with the Design, Publishing, and New Media Department of the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago.
