Episode 06: EVERYONE is a curator now. Or are they? A talk with Curator Frederick Janka.

Frederick Janka has been curating contemporary art in Mexico and the U.S. for over 15 years. In our conversation he politely brushes aside the notion that everyone is curator and tells us why he thinks the more typical role curators play is vitally important. HINT: It has to do with supporting artists. He also tells us how being a curator is actually like being a producer and explains that in many cases, capitalism has co-opted curation.
