The conception and production of a collective curatorial project, presented in public, is a constant aim that is derived from the pedagogical philosophy. Each session lasts nine months, from October to early July, and is divided into two stages: from the establishment of a framework and a collective working method, to the production of the final curatorial project. Both stages require their specific form of advisory and pedagogical frameworks that the École manages in relation with the project advisor, guest lecturers and field visits.

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.

APPLICATION
The program is open to candidates who have obtained the equivalent of a master’s degree or who can show relevant professional experience.

Candidates should have knowledge of the production and mediation of contemporary art within an institutional context and be open to the diversity of current artistic positions, spaces and languages, as well as alternative economies and emerging practices specific to the field of art.
A reasonable fluency in English is required and an ability to shift between languages is encouraged.

Admission to the École du Magasin is approved in two stages:

1. A pre-selection based on an application, which includes a current CV, a letter o motivation, three letters of recommendation (from teachers or professionals in the field of art), a fee of 65 EUROS, a curatorial project proposal of no more than three pages. The proposal is for admission purposes only and is not intended for consideration during the session.
Applications must be sent between 1 February and 30 April 2011.

2. An interview with a jury in Grenoble. Pre-selected candidates will be informed by letter of the date of the interview (scheduled in June). Interviews via Internet can be arranged on a case-by-case basis.

Session expenses are covered by L’Ecole. Participants are not required to pay tuition fees, but must assume their own living expenses.

The École du Magasin is an independent training program. Course completion does not grant university credit or a diploma.
