About the lecture series
Global Art History 4: Curating in the Post-Global

The workshop Work, curator, work! is an experiment in thinking and talking about how to deal with the wish to create projects the best way possible without idealizing the means or ways to get there. When discussing exhibition concepts in art, we often forget that their realization involves finances and the distribution of work. While curatorial discourse incorporates these questions and makes the launching of curatorial ideas a field of ideals we urge to fulfil, our conversations could be expanded to talking about the influence of networks, physical or mental health. Work, curator, work! can be a chance to add some footnotes to important discourses, to discover them and think about how we can work with them, instead of experiencing them as a burden in how we make exhibitions.

The workshop will consist of an introductory session followed by a close reading and discussion of texts, which will be determined during the introductory phase of the workshop, thus taking into account the wishes and interests of all participants. The workshop is intended as a non-hierarchical structure for the exchange of ideas, interests, concerns and knowledge, in which all participants and organizers are equal.
