Curatorship

  • 7.5 credits

The aim of course is to encourage the student to articulate and reflect upon his/her own curatorial position, with reference to the specific exhibition proposal that finalizes the course.

Via different means of education (readings, discussions, independent research, presentations, visualizations), the student is also encouraged to relate this curatorial position to relevant historical and theoretical contexts. Several curator talks act as a core in the course and highlight different ways of working curatorially, both within and outside the frame of the art institution. Through lectures, text seminars, individual presentations, and talks with prominent curators on the Stockholm art scene, the student is confronted with a spectrum of different (historically as well as contemporary) curatorial approaches.
