FRAGMENTA is an initiative to present contemporary art in the form of pop-up exhibitions in the public spaces on the Maltese Islands. As a project space without a physical space, FRAGMENTA’s mission is to offer experiences in form of artistic events, which happen in different locations or settings in and around Malta, lasting a maximum duration of 24 hours. FRAGMENTA has been organizing events and exhibitions since 2013.
Each exhibition is curated by Bettina Hutschek, who also determines setting and location. The exhibitions are born through a collaborative process between FRAGMENTA and the artist.
We consider the elements we are presenting to be “art”, most of the time, but this is not even necessarily the case. In the end, we do not know what “art” really is, or how to define it. We simply want to show something beautiful, something intelligent, or something strong. Or ideally all of these put together.
Curator, Founder, Organizer and Location Scout: Bettina Hutschek
Founding Member and Consultant: Tom Van Malderen
