Curating in Context
On the Project
The two-year long Erasmus+ project co-organized between two NGOs (Tanzfabrik Berlin and Lokomotiva Skopje), and two Higher Education Institutions (Stockholm University of the Arts and University of Zagreb) was developed in order to respond to the challenges that the growing influence of the concepts of curating and curatorial pose in the contemporary art field, beyond the sphere of visual arts. The project focuses on creating knowledge and opportunities for students, practitioners, curators, scholars and cultural workers to critically reflect and address different socio-political and economic contexts, and develop curatorial methods to rethink the practices of performing arts in relation to activism, social movements and self organization. During the two years the project will result with a series of meetings, public events and various resources that will thematise collaborative learning approaches through curating between politics and policies and valorisation of art with the greater goal of manifesting the impact of the cultural and civil sectors on society.
The project “Curating in Context” is supported by Erasmus +, EU programme for education, training, youth and sport.
