'Curatorial Knowledge & Art Journalism' 
(Kuratorisches Wissen & Kunstpublizistik)

Ruhr University Bochum


Start: February 2014

The part-time postgraduate course, devised by the 
Ruhr University Bochum, is aimed specifically at 
the requirements of exhibiting modern and 
contemporary art and writing about it. It is run 
in cooperation with many museums and exhibition 
spaces in Northrhine-Westphalia. In-depth 
tutorials, work discussions and workshops with 
internationally renowned curators, artists, 
journalists, writers and other experienced 
representatives from the fields of exhibitions 
and media, lead to a thorough, practice-oriented 
knowledge of the art of the 20th and 21st century.

During their postgraduate programme the 
participants will acquire key areas of expertise 
for their professional activities, both practical 
and theoretical. They study the history, theory 
and practice of curating and the categories and 
criteria of art journalism.

The advanced training programme provides:
*	consolidation and application of 
specialist knowledge about modern and 
contemporary art
*	critical analysis, reflection and mediation of exhibitions
*	debate of current theories and methods
*	acquisition and adaptation of expertise 
in conceiving and realising curatorial projects
*	analysis and development of innovative 
formats for the presentation and mediation of art
