Finally, it’s cool to be a curator (in the eyes of ELLE)!

Isn’t that good news? The mainstream woman magazine ELLE has found out how cool – no, sorry, how HOT curators really are.

Actually, most of the people mentioned in the article are sons-of, boyfriends-of, or gallerists/art dealers, even artists, not museum or free-lance curators. But anyhow, I am sure that we should all applaud the headline “A Curator Boyfriend Is The Hottest Accessory For 2020” and jump on the bandwagon, because who knows how long the hype lasts.

Ah, hey, maybe Men’s Health will soon give us an update on the hottest female curators on this planet. Can’t wait for that one.

Meanwhile, don’t miss this great piece of investigative journalism:

The winning project will receive a maximum of 7,000 euros, out of which 1,000 euros will be prize money and a maximum of 6,000 will go towards production costs and adapting the project for the space in Barcelona.
The competition will be open from 00.01 on September 2,  2019 until 23.59 on November 30 2019. The jury’s decision will be announced before December 23 2019.

Residency Program at ZK/U, Berlin. Deadline: October 13th, 2019

In the context of its art and research residency programme, ZK/U offers a ‘living & working’ space from artists, scholars and practitioners involved in exploring the idea and reality of “the city”. The programme is open to contemporary artistic positions that are conceptual, interventionist and contextual.

Selected projects are often informed by theoretical and practice-based critiques within the fields of urban research, geography, anthropology, urbanism, architecture and the humanities. With collaborative practices and peer-to-peer learning at its core, the residency is about exchanging with and learning from other artists and practitioners. It is a space for urban experimentation where fellows connect through common themes and interests.
Residents are encouraged to involve themselves with ZK/U’s programme and to propose their own formats.

Within the frame of this Open Call, ZK/U invites applications around it’s current discourses of the conceptual framework and additionally encourages investigations into the following themes:

  • alternative practices of knowledge production, mediation and new formats of cross-sectoral conversations
  • inclusive modes of engagement in democratic decision making processes and grassroot movements
  • connecting global communities through strategies of local non-monetary economies and digital governance
  • prototyping digital and spatial infrastructure for a future based on the common good
