What, How & for Whom/WHW is a group of four curators from Croatia who have been collaborating since 1999. Its members, based in Zagreb and Berlin, are Ivet Ćurlin, Ana Dević, Nataša Ilić, and Sabina Sabolović. WHW organizes a range of production, exhibition, and publishing projects. The group is particularly interested in creative use of public space. Since 2003, WHW has programmed Gallery Nova, a city-owned gallery in Zagreb that hosts exhibitions of international and local artists, as well as lectures and public discussions. Described in the New York Times as “deeply influential,” WHW has worked in many international contexts, including the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía; Istanbul Biennial; Creative Capital in New York City; and Kunsthalle Fridericianum in Kassel.
