INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE: CURATORIAL CHALLENGES

University of Copenhagen May 26-27 2016 The exhibition is a primary site of cultural exchange; part spectacle, part socio-historical event, and part structuring device, exhibitions establish and administer meanings of art and cultural heritage. Temporary exhibitions increase in cultural importance, while the traditional role of museums as institutions of Bildung transforms – even museums with well known and established collections follow the call for ever changing exhibitions. As exhibitions gain in importance, so do curatorial strategies and thus new research and definitions are called for: What constitutes the curatorial? What sort of knowledge is produced in and through curatorial strategies? How do curatorial strategies inform museums in contemporary society and what sort of conservative, or perhaps critical and transformative potentials can be traced in exhibition cultures? The conference invites curators and academics from the interdisciplinary fields of art, cultural history, and museum studies in order to discuss the challenges of curating in contemporary society. Please register by April 25 – the number of places is limited! artsandculturalstudies.ku.dk/conferencecuratorial/registration_/  Curatorial_flyer_A6  Topics:

  • Exhibitions as a form of research interventions: contemporary artists working with or within museums participatory practices and strategies
  • curating within the changing roles of museums as Bildung institutions.

Call for papers: Mangfoldige museumspraksiser – museet som overflødighetshorn, Norsk Teknisk Museum, 24.-25. oktober 2016

Museene er steder der originale gjenstander oppbevares og vises fram. Samtidig forholder museene seg til mange ulike typer kopier: etterlikninger, reproduksjoner, restaureringer, avstøpninger, versjoner, print, dubletter, utgaver, modeller, miniatyrer, avbildninger, skisser, sitater osv. Kopier finnes i magasinene, i verkstedene, i utstillingene og på nettet, og de brukes i undervisning, i markedsføring og selges i museumsbutikkene. Kopier og kopiering er sentrale for forståelsen av hva museene er og gjør og for oppfatningen av museene som forvaltere av det originale, ekte og autentiske. Vi ønsker innlegg som løfter fram og diskuterer museenes ulike kopier og kopieringspraksiser. Det kan være bidrag som forholder seg til motsetningspar som original/kopi eller ekte/falsk. Det kan også være bidrag som løfter fram objekter, praksiser og forståelser som i mindre grad tar utgangspunkt i slike motsetninger. Læs mere her
