Roger M. Buergel
Lives and works in Zurich, Switzerland

(b. 1962, Berlin) is a curator and founding director of Johann Jacobs Museum in Zurich, a private institution dedicated to the research and display of global trade routes and their remnants, or what might be loosely labelled ‘the migration of form’. Curatorial projects include Mobile Worlds at the Museum of Arts and Crafts in Hamburg (2016–18) and Suzhou Documents (co-curated with Zhang Qing) at the Suzhou Museum in China (2016). He was the artistic director of documenta 12 in Kassel (2007) and more recently, the artistic director of Busan Biennale 2012 in South Korea, for which he conceived the Garden of Learning, a social experiment in transcultural curating which sought to emphasise the production of artworks through collaboration.
