DescriptionMuseums and other cultural institutions are at the moment challenging conventional forms of exhibitions, concerts and theater production. This can be seen as a response to a contemporary culture, which is directed towards live events, a blurring of former boundaries between the art genres and new types of knowledge production, aesthetic experience and social participation. The course focuses on three issues: 1: a new concept of curating drawing on recent developments within the cross-disciplinary field of the curatorial. 2: exhibition theory and new understandings of exhibitions as complex platforms for the production of knowledge, shared spaces, and affective encounters. 3: the communicative aspects of these complex new formats and the use of digital technologies for developing new educational and participatory formats.
The course aims to develop insight into the new discourses around curating, staging and exhibition analysis. It will provide students with competences in practical as well as critical and theoretical approaches to contemporary cultural staging. Students will thus gain competences in analyzing exhibitions and cultural events as dynamic, public-creating platforms and as crucial sites for the negotiation of identity today.
Teaching will vary between lectures, class discussions, and group work, out of campus visits, guest lectures and supervision. The course terminates with a seminar, which will be co-organized and co-curated with the students.
