SUSANNE HUSSE (1982 in Görlitz, Germany) is a curator, cultural researcher and author living in Berlin. Since 2012 she works as artistic director for District Kunst- und Kulturförderung in Berlin Tempelhof-Schöneberg, a trans-disciplinary think and work space engaging at the thresholds of visual arts and other forms of knowledge production. Her current interest lies in the reflection of the political and cultural heritage of the Cold War period in contemporary art and theory production (e.g. The Forgotten Pioneer Movement with U. Gerhardt, 2014). With L. Sandoval she developed dissident desire as a frame for ongoing research and artistic manifestations on the performativity of precarious bodies related to (bio-)political subjectivity (since 2013).

She was awarded with the Goethe Institut curatorial research grant for her investigations on collective art production and urban activisim in South Korea (2012). Since 2011 she co-curates the project space NOTE ON which since 2013 operates nomadically (Crampographies, 2014, at KW Berlin).
