Daniel Tyradellis is a philosopher and curator. After studying philosophy and philosophy of science, he received his doctorate in 2003 at the chair of Friedrich Kittler with a thesis on the genesis of Husserl’s phenomenology in the context of the mathematical crisis of foundations. He was a long-standing member of the DFG Research Training Group “Coding Violence in Medial Change” at the the Humboldt-Universität and part of the research group “Violence of the Archives”.
Since 1997, in parallel to his university activities, Tyradellis has worked as a leading curator of mostly transdisciplinary exhibitions in numerous museums, including the Deutsches Hygiene-Museum Dresden, the Jewish Museum Berlin and the Deichtorhallen Hamburg. His research focuses on the close interlocking of theory and practice of curating as its own kind of cultural studies research. He understands the exhibitions he conceives as experiments in thinking in space.
Since October 2021, he has held the chair of the Humboldt Forum Endowed Professorship for the Theory and Practice of Interdisciplinary Curating, funded by the Bundesbeauftragte für Kultur und Medien.
