You feel the need to present contemporary art (and practices related to this art form) in a different way than the known methods.

Maybe looking for (forms of) presentation that feel connected to the open-ended ideas (with narratives in constant change)? We will see!



 

About the course/workshop:
The bring in of information to-, and following how curatorial qualities are formed, i.e. over weeks we will raise the question:  through which a sensitive empathy, as well as sensitive ways of seeing, of understanding and acting are formed.

The course/workshop will connect historical ways of recording/observing, mediating and exhibiting with current practices and possibilities, starting from the assumption that the classical - production, mediation and presentation - cultural centers (e.g. museums) are partially replaced by other practices in the technological (digital) world. In the course we will explore the strengths and weaknesses of future cultural development and anticipate what this may mean for art & democratic culture.
 
One third of the course will take place in Zoom, this in exchange with Lima (for future collaborations)

From Berlin, each lecture will be followed by a seminar, 5 times at Zoom with  Lima). The homework (your project papers) will always be worked out in duos, or trios (Berlin, with partners Lima). We will end the course with a small presentation (this may be a few months later).

The course/workshop objectives:
a) Introduction to curating through knowledge strengthening, analysis and sensitivity stimulation.
b) Awareness development on changing production, mediation, presentation and visitor response (inclusion)
c) Initiation of a small international operating curatorial network
