Curatorial Studies Workshop (8-10/6/2022)

May 19th, 202212:41 pm @

This is an internal network event for the Curatorial Studies Workshop that is also open to our colleagues, students, alumni and associates. The meeting is based on a series of short 15 minute presentations followed by 15 minute discussions in paired combinations alternating with breaks of 30 minutes or longer. The goal is for colleagues and partners who are working at many different sites, to get to know their different contexts and concerns through one example or issue that each partner shares. (A knowledge exchange rather than a performance for an audience.) Below is the programme (all times CET). Any enquiries to mick.wilson(at)
