CuratorLab, Call for Applications 2013/2014
Deadline: May 3, 2013
Curatorial Program for Professionals in Arts, Crafts and Design
Konstfack University College of Arts, Crafts and Design, Stockholm
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 program offers the participants the possibility to develop and realize one individual 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 research/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, and provides each participant access to the faculties across Konstfack's eight 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.
Applications are accepted once a year, to enter in September 2013. The program is flexible. It can be divided over different intervals over the academic year and it is not required to be based in Stockholm full time. The final schedule will be determined during the first meeting in September in Stockholm.
Tuition at Konstfack is free of charge for students from Sweden and the EU/EEA. From 2011 students from outside the EU/EEA are required to pay tuition fees.
Applications must be received by May 3rd, 2013
