Quadrilogy is a multi-regional exhibition and research project of the Burger Collection curated by Daniel Kurjaković.





We are pleased to present the continuation of the Theory/Conversations series of the Quadrilogy. The curatorial team of the Burger Collection regularly engages in conversations with artists, art historians and theorists in order to question both the artistic practices represented in the collection as well as to deal with wider concerns, both practical and theoretical, in the present context of a multi-regional art system. The conversations are recurrently published online and constitute a feature of the research conducted in relation to the Quadrilogy. The latest interviews with Jitish Kallat and Jörg Heiser are now available. Indian artist Jitish Kallat explores notions of history as they play out in his most recent installation Public Notice 3 as well as conditions and effects of the migration of cultural signs within globalization. Jörg Heiser, coeditor of Frieze magazine, explores theory’s approach to art, and delineates a critique of the modernist value system at its core.




The Burger Collection continues exploring possibilities in Hong Kong to realize the next part of the Quadrilogy project. Hong Kong’s complex past history and vital contemporary cityscape present a remarkable occasion to venture into questions regarding contemporary Asian society including some notions of non-Western modernity within a post-colonial setting. Like Conflicting Tales in Berlin (2009), this new project will be focusing on a number of important collaborations with local artists and institutions. It will also contextualize parts of the Burger Collection within a structure encompassing various artistic practices as well as conversations, discussions and research.





Aside from its own exhibition and research project of the Quadrilogy, the Burger Collection regularly responds to loan requests from artists and institutions in its open policy of making works available to the general public.
