About the Ship

The Curator Ship is a collection of useful articles and materials on contemporary photography and visual arts. It is a personal and subjective choice of the editors. As the project is open for collaboration to everyone, we encourage you to contribute information that you find useful!

Navigation and star maps: Have a look at the menu to the right: The posts are ordered by deadlines (open and closed), by languages, and also by categories.

Your feedback is important to me: If you have any ideas to make the Ship bigger, faster, slimmer, shinier or just more fun, please tell me how.

The idea for the Curator Ship was born in 2008, but it was not much more than a funny Logo for a while. The current haul was built and launched in August of 2010.In the beginning, it had only a few visitors a day. This has changed quite a bit. So, have a walk on the deck and open each and every door, hatch, or bull’s eye.


The Crew:

Captain (and cleaning lady): Moritz Neumüller

First Mates: Claudi Nir, Arcangela Regis, Eufália Cristina Paz de Almeida

Second Mates: Cristina Gomis, Alba Bru

There are still some jobs in the galley and the machine room available, so do not hesitate to let us know if you are interested in the experience. Ex-Pirates welcome.

Please contact us to get your Call published, or leave a comment here, for internal affairs and signing on.

  7. Hi, Moritz. Thanks for an informative and useful blog…:)

    I am Co-Director of Goddard College’s MFA in Interdisciplinary Arts Program, which was the first low-residency program of its kind when established in the mid-90s. Our program and its activities appeal to anyone interested in interdisciplinary arts praxis and/or education, whether visual, performative or otherwise. Could we somehow get the occasional notice on application deadlines or events posted on your blog? Would be much appreciated.



    • Dear Michael,

      maybe I am mistaken, but your program seems to be an educational program with some days onsite, correct?

      You will understand that we cannot make publicity for your course. Rather, you can send us more information on grants and scholarships for the program, with their respective deadlines, such as the ones you have listed at http://www.goddard.edu/admissions/goddard-scholarships

      Best regards, Moritz

    I’d like tobe considered for a galley position. I think I can cook up some pretty interesting dishes.
    Congratulations and good luck.

    • Welcome aboard, Rosalind. I cleaned up the galley, as much as I could. Still a lot of empty bottles in the recycling bin (left behind by my cousin, Captain Morgan, the other night) and some dirty dishes in the sink, but a lot better than it used to be. So, when shall we start?

  9. Hola Moritz,

    Nos gustaría informaros de nuestra convocatoria de residencias / espacios de trabajo para artistas, cuya deadline es el próximo 10 de enero. Si pudierais publicar las bases en Curatorship os estaríamos muy agradecidos. Podéis encontrar información aquí:


    Mil gracias!
