Yet the logic of contemporary exhibition cultures is not necessarily intra-active in itself. For Barad (2012), intra-actions contest the causal logic that separates a phenomenon from its constitution: for example, there is no one (or more) individually constituted agent(s) behind a certain phenomenon. Rather, the relation between agents, objects, processes, and effects is far more complex. Agents themselves are reconfigured through the processes they engage; and phenomena are always, not only co-constituted, but agential. That said, contemporary exhibition cultures, for their part, often rely strongly on one key character or agent: the curator. And curatorial authority has come under some hefty criticism in recent times. In the polemical essay “Against Curating” (2017), for example, Stefan Heidenreich frames curating as an “undemocratic, authoritarian, opaque and corruptible” way of making exhibitions. Heidenreich claims that “without giving reasons, without discussion, curators choose their artists and decide where and how to show which kind of work”. “How is it that in the world of art where so much emphasis is placed on freedom,” Heidenreich asks “all the power is concentrated in the hands of exhibition autocrats?”.
