In which way is the curatorial relevant within the cultural field under the conditions of globalization? How do techniques, strategies and effects of the curatorial relate to those of art and other kinds of knowledge production? Which are the similarities and the perspectives of mutual exchange amongst those fields? Which specificities does the curatorial develop in the different arts and which forms does it take in the different cultures? What are the functions of the curatorial in the respective aesthetic, social or economic context? Tightly interweaving theory and practice, these are some of the questions which the MA program Cultures of the Curatorial addresses.

Cultures of the Curatorial is a postgraduate part-time program, founded in 2009, which combines application-oriented research practice with theoretical reflection. It is conceived for people with different disciplinary and professional backgrounds—the arts (including also a.o. dance, theatre, architecture, design), cultural mediation, the human, social and natural sciences—who are interested in an engaged work within the cultural field as well as in a concentrated, well-founded theoretical and practical additional qualification for a professional practice in the curatorial field.

Modules(1) History and Theory of the Curatorial/History of exhibiting
(2) Modern and Contemporary Art History and Theory
(3) Research Practice I: Curatorial Project
(4) History and Theory of the Curatorial/Transdisciplinarity
(5) History and Theory of the Curatorial/Transculturality
(6) Research Practice II: MA-Project/Conception
(7) Research Practice III: MA-Project

The modules can be studied alongside work. The seminar sessions usually take place in four to five blocks per semester. This offers the opportunity to continue an occupational activity and follow one’s own projects parallel to the study program.

Teaching Team: Beatrice von Bismarck, Benjamin Meyer-Krahmer, Julia Kurz

GuestsIn addition to the teaching team at the Academy of Fine Arts and among others the following guests gave input into the study program since 2009: Gabriele Brandstetter, Zasha Colah, Clémentine Deliss, Anselm Franke, Sigrid Gareis, Hannah Hurtzig, Maria Lind, Doreen Mende, Matthias Michalka, Matthias Mühling, Marion von Osten, Raqs Media Collective, Willem de Rooij, Irit Rogoff, Eran Schaerf, Avinoam Shalem, Slavs and Tatars, Barbara Steiner, Nora Sternfeld, Hito Steyerl, Anton Vidokle, Danh Vo, Eyal Weizman, Jun Yang, Tirdad Zolghadr.
