for Applications 2009/2010*
Application Deadline June 30, 2009
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 nine departments,
visiting curators, critics and practitioners, and be welcomed into graduate
seminars and classes.
Dependant 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 2009. 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 mid September in
Tuition at Konstfack is free of charge. The university college has no
scholarships to offer students.
