École du Magasin was set up to provide a professional environment for a rigorous combination of research and practice. Since its inception, emphasis has been placed on the exhibition as an open platform that allow for different fields or strategies of representation to be explored and consequently drawn upon. The École encourages various curatorial approaches that include not only how a project takes form but also how aesthetic and didactic strategies can be combined with the aim of providing information in more research-driven projects; how to take into account and integrate newly developed network cultures and technology; how a curatorial project can be understood in a given context; and finally how an exhibition can express the specific curatorial working-group process which is central to the École philosophy. 
The École du Magasin draws its strength from a wide range of international participants and advisors in which English serves as the shared working language. This is aimed at broadening the horizons of all participants and drawing attention to a larger, shared contemporary discourse of critical theory and contemporary art. Through the diversity of cultures and heritages at work together in the program, the École has developed a unique heterogeneity, further benefitting the group experience of contemporary enquiry.
