Dead line for applying: March 4, 2023

The digital age has shown us how easily knowledge and information are now able to flow and circulate. It has rendered equally visible how hard it is especially for artists to challenge the dominant online presence withtheir commitment to printed matter and publishing. This workshop will engage with publications arguing for their role in creating a wider public. We will be discussing contemporary conditions of production, circulation, and distribution which insist on including questions of ownership, usership and belonging as concerns integral to the artistic practice itself. My experience with publishing lies at the intersection of art, intellectual property, and open culture involving alternative economies & digital ecologies, the commons, media & collectivity – allcontributing to creating a sustainable public realm.

We will be focussing on expanding an ethics of curatorial practice, with a particular emphasis on alternative modes of research and indigenous knowledge. We might begin by asking questions like: What is therelationship between ethics, research, publishing and the

institutionalised practices of curating? Can the institution exert moral agency? How does this change the way we practice as artists, curators and researchers and by extension shapes how we speak, read, write?

Through a series of interactive lectures hold by Marysia Lewwandowska, students will be able to turn to an alternative conception of publishing within artistic practices as the centre of this discussion, one which prioritises not information or formal knowledges but is embedded in the communal. We will enquire about forms of coming together through publishing not predetermined by outcomes but by a shared process of enquiry and a

set of diverse interests.

STRUCTURE: The course is taught remotely and divided into 6 units. Online Study Lectures effectively run over the week – Tuesday and Thursday from 6pm to 8pm CET – maintaining our usual tours’ focused, intensive and immersive experience.

Session 1. Archival knowledge as public awakening.

Session 2. Exhibiting Art History. Aby Warburg - Mnemosyne Atlas.

Session 3. Artists/Publishers.

Session 4. Distributed practices. Forms of ownership.

Session 5. Online Viral Networks.

Session 6. Publication as Activism.

TEACHING: The remote learning experience includes lectures, seminar participation and discussions. The course provides unique opportunities for direct student engagement with arts professionals, as well an extensive array of discussion forums.
The teaching is intensive and supportive, with an emphasis on individual learning, and on developing a broad range of knowledge and understanding related to curating and its ethics.

FACULTY: The lectures will be hold by Marysia Lewandowska. She is a Polish-born artist based in London since 1985. She has been exploring the public functions of archives, museums and exhibitions often resulting in conceptually driven projects and films involving the property of others. These works propose new relations between forms of knowledge and ownership, activating reflections on the social and immaterial public realm. In 2009 she has established the Women’s Audio Archive followed by a publication Undoing Property? co-edited with Laurel Ptak in 2013. Her work has been presented by Tate Modern, Moderna Museet, Muzeum Sztuki, Whitechapel Gallery. The latest installation It’s About Time occupied the Pavilion of Applied Arts at the 58th Art Biennale in Venice. The Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw has recently included the Enthusiasts Archiveproject in their collection. She is currently collaborating with Kunsthalle Baden Baden on re-thinking institutional practices for the post-pandemic times.

Workshop online: rethinking exhibition models of the Venice Biennale in relation to the history of the curatorial practices

Description: 

Deadline for applying: 30.11.2022

This workshop online provides an immersive and active understanding of curatorial practice and its developments in the last decades. Through the work of some of the most remarkable curators, the students will develop an understanding of how curating works by looking back at its history and by examining certain case studies. The analysis of specific editions of the Venice Art Biennale will give us the possibility to look to the predecessors and the influences of specific curators on their work. But it is also an opportunity to explore the ways in which the curatorial practices are changing and examine increasingly diverse approaches to exhibition-making.

The objectives of the workshop:

To gain familiarity with different types of models of curatorial practices and evaluate the essential qualities of a strong curator through understanding the historical and contemporary role of the curator in relation to past and recent exhibition models.

After each session a discussion will be hold in order to exchange different opinions and views on the approach of the singular curatorial practice. Rethinking specific curatorial models, by analyzing their origins and their subsequent developments is one of the key elements of the workshop.The mission is to create a critical ability in order to discover the proper curatorial model.

Practical exercise: in the last session every participants will have to present an exhibition project by applying one of the models identified during the workshop.

THE PROGRAM

First week: 06 - 08.12.22 at 6pm - 8pm

Brief introduction of the program.

First issue: The world is turning global - a post-colonial approach to the exhibition making. Jean Hubert Martin curates in 1989 Les magician de la Terre in Paris, four years later the concept of nomadism and multiculturalism is the main idea of the Achille Bonito Oliva's Venice Biennale in 1993. Further developments are identified in some recent exhibitions which are reflecting critically on the colonial past. Case study: the curatorial approach of Charles Esche at the Van Abbe museum in Eindhoven and the exhibition organized in 2018 at the Hamburger Bahnhof in Berlin: Hello World.

Open discussion

Second week 13 - 15.12.22 at 6pm - 8pm

The curator as an interpreter of the art history by creating new narration and visions through the display of the exhibition.

1995 at the Venice Biennale, Jean Clair curates an edition called: Identity and Alterity: Figures of Body 1895 - 1995. Instead of exploring the history of this century’s avant-gardes, Clair interrogates another, alternative history, one he perceives as ignored and overshadowed in the Modern canon’s conventionally accepted plan. In 2013 Massimiliano Gioni at the Venice Biennale curated The Encyclopedia Palace. The exhibition structured like a temporary museum that initiates an inquiry into the many ways in which images have been used to organize knowledge and shape our experience.

In 2015 a show at Punta della Dogana in Venice curated by the artist Dahn Vo, called Slip of the Tongue. The show was the result of a narration of his personal mythologies, featured with art history masters and contemporary art works.

Open discussion

Third week 19 - 21.05.22 at 6pm - 8pm

The curator questioning his time: The visionary curator Harald Szeemann, who launched at the Venice Biennale in 1980 the “Aperto” section for young artists  and in the 1999 Biennale replaced it with “d’Apertutto”, a strolling, horizontal exhibition, a succession of events in exhibition spaces. An art exhibition which lied primarily in the quality of the critical and cultural proposals and raised many questions. How do art forms react to the prevailing globalization of languages? To the process of economic, financial, commercial and technological integration? Harald Szeemann is the curator  who has always been able to criticize and question his time. Documenta 5 in 1972 is a perfect example of his curatorial attitude as much as  the two editions of the Biennale (In 2001: Plateau of Humankind. The Visual Arts Biennale as a platform of humanity.)

The exhibition as a collaboration of a team of curators. In 2002, Documenta 11 in Kassel, curated, by Okwui Enwezor was structured in five platforms which aimed and described the present location of culture and its interfaces with other complex, global knowledge systems. Okwui Enwezor created a team of 6 curators from different geographical area. One year later at the Venice Art Biennale 2003 was presented: The dictatorship of the viewer. A collaboration between a group of world leading curators under the direction of Francesco Bonami. Ten different exhibitions were representing a mapping of the contemporary art from all over the world.

The collaborative model is the bases also of the exhibition Hello World where a more structured concept is connecting each different curatorial section.

22.12.22 at 6pm - 8pm

The last day is devoted to the work prepared by each participant and to discussion.The practical exercise aims to create a critical capacity of identifying the models presented and analyzed during the lectures in contemporary art exhibitions. Each participant will present an examples of exhibitions or will structure a new project which is related to the models discussed.The program aims to give the opportunity to create, according to his/her own artistic statement, an exhibition defined by a strong critical and innovative content.

The fee per course is 590 euro. In case you choose to take part to more then one course, a discount of 100 euro will be applied to the fee of the next courses.

The East Course curatorial course invites emerging curators to work together with professionals in order to gain new skills and perspectives on curating. East Course consists of intense sessions comprising lectures and workshops. The program gives an opportunity to hear the freshest and most powerful voices of the art world and the stories, strategies and goals that inspire them. It expands on trajectories, methodologies and ideas specific to “museum,” rarely addressed, perhaps even neglected within academic and experimental curatorial programs which usually focus on the public and non-profit spheres of contemporary art.

Museum forgotten by memory /// Lecture

Today, institutions are more and more embedded in the fabric of the culture industry while the museum should be a space where the meaning of things is constantly negotiated.

How to aspire to undermine the cornerstones and principles of the museum? Institutions should be not seen as spaces where to display art objects but as contested spaces that can activate an ongoing process of self-questioning. Imagination is a powerful tool to offer new possibilities of exhibition making by withdrawing from the apparatus of reality.

Structure of the course:

Through this two-day programme, you will investigate different modes of curatorial practice and build your knowledge and skills by engaging in workshops, presentations, case-studies and discussions with curator Luca lo Pinto in person.

The workshops aim to:

identify practices that try to trigger an impulse in local artistic and cultural life in contexts affected by global institutions and events;

highlight how the relationship between these different approaches to art can be problematic, productive or just parallel;

identify common strategies for developing generative practices directly related to these type of contextual situations.
