Goldsmiths Department of Art and the British School at Rome are pleased to announce the 2019 Curatorial Summer School entitled ‘Curating the Contemporary’

This Summer School is now in its third year and is aimed at those who are interested in the professional field of curating. This will take place in July 2019 at the prestigious British School at Rome. We are looking for entrants from a mix of backgrounds but particularly graduates and artists who are considering working in curating as well as established curators who want to think and talk about the challenges and opportunities that face curators in the contemporary moment.

The course will provide you with an opportunity to engage intensively with the activity of curating contemporary art, one that produces exhibitions and events within an expanded field that includes commercial and public galleries, museums and foundations, but also public spaces and social contexts. It will investigate various modes of curating contemporary art, as well as in the expanded sense of the philosophical idea of the curatorial as it is currently discussed in the field.

Please note that this is a two week course taking place from Monday 1 – 15 July 2019.

As curator, I am exploring how digitalization has made photography heterogeneous, multiple and interrelated to other media; from print to online streaming and processing via software that translates audio and sonic impulse into images. Photography is now an environment of relation-building, identity-shaping: a ‘territory’ not merely digital, and not exclusively online.

The key shift I am exploring in my body of curatorial research is how an image now is ‘performing’ as well as ‘representing.’ Building upon the work of theorists and image makers such as Vilém Flusser, Marshall McLuhan, Franco Vaccari, Hito Steyerl and Lauren Cornell, I combine a series of curated visual outputs including online platforms (www.expandedphoto.com), lectures (like this one), and exhibitions involving contemporary digital practitioners (e.g. Erica Scourti, Oskar Schmidt, Christopher Meerdo, Clare Strand, Margo Wolowiecz, Thomson & Craighead, Thomas Galler, Eva & Franco Mattes, and others).

AestheticJournalism-cover

Aesthetic Journalism is not about delivering information; “journalistic art” is preoccupied with this, and I am not preoccupied with the artist-as-journalist. What I care about – seeing it from a certain distance – is a cultural practice that weaves together the criteria of journalism and art, questioning and possibly reversing the tradition of both fields. An activity – either produced by artists or journalists or technologists – that queries the realm of fiction as the site of imagination, and that of journalism as a site for reality. This brings me to issue an invitation to embrace a notion of information, communication and aesthetics which includes the artistic treatment of reality; because ultimately, we start to get closer to the core of the matter (ourselves included) when we make our reality not a given, irreversible fact, but a possibility among many others.
Konstfack Research Week is an annual event highlighting and discussing research practices at Konstfack and research perspectives related to Art, Craft, Design, Interior Architecture, Visual Communication and Visual Studies and Art Education, in Sweden and internationally.

The programme includes presentations of on-going research at Konstfack as well as related perspectives from invited Swedish and international guests. It combines presentations, lectures discussions and workshops and targets Master and PhD students, researchers and faculty members at Konstfack, as well as a wider public interested in these issues.

Konstfack Research Week is organized through Konstfack Board of Education and Research (UFN) and coordinated by Magnus Ericson.
