    Curator Who Shaped a Global View of Contemporary Art Is Leaving His Post
    At the Haus der Kunst, Mr. Enwezor drew acclaim for “Postwar: Art Between the Pacific and the Atlantic, 1945-1965,” an effort to tell a global narrative of art in the two decades after World War II. Established names like Jackson Pollock and Frank Stella hung alongside artists from Iran, Mozambique, China and Mexico.
    Mr. Enwezor’s tenure at the Haus der Kunst was tainted by a bizarre scandal involving a human resources manager who pressured employees to join the Church of Scientology, which is strictly monitored by the German authorities, though not illegal. The museum also faced funding problems, and in 2017 it appointed a managing director to lead the museum alongside Mr. Enwezor as artistic director.
