CuratorLab is an international self-directed curatorial course dedicated to the advancement of curatorial practices based on research in the arts, crafts and design. It is designed to offer time to conduct research and to explore new directions and ideas in order to develop artistic or theoretical work while linking academic study to cultural projects.

The course offers the participants the possibility to develop and realize one individual and/or collaborative project in the form of a public presentation, i.e. exhibition, lecture series, publication, screenings, seminar, for which CuratorLab provides professional feedback and practical support as well as a moderate production budget. The final form, and where it will be presented, is decided by each participant in dialogue with his or her personal advisor.

CuratorLab will arrange guest lectures by professionals in the field, and provides each participant access to the faculties across Konstfack’s departments, visiting curators, critics and practitioners, and be welcomed into graduate seminars and classes.

Dependent on the individual aims and research topics of the participants the faculty will assist in contacting art institutions to arrange lectures, to set up meetings with professionals in the field, as well as schedule studio visits with artists and designers in the Nordic region. Participants will be introduced to Konstfack’s Nordic and international network in arts, design and craft.

Participants are encouraged to organize public presentations within Konstfack and other institutions, in the form of discussions, lectures, screenings, or seminars, for which they will receive support by the faculty.

Applications are accepted once a year, to start in September 2014. The course is flexible. It is divided over three different intervals over the academic year and it is not required to be based in Stockholm full time.

Application deadline: April 15
