CuratorLab is a unique one-year international curatorial research program accepting eight participants per year. It doesn’t have a fixed curriculum and every year it reinvents itself anew around a leading topic, followed by a set of studio visits, seminars, lectures and trips, co-organized together with the participants. We are meeting four times per year for two-weeks sessions; therefore you do not need to be based in Sweden. During the academic year you are supposed to realize a project in Stockholm in the form of a public presentation, i.e. exhibition, lecture, publication, walk, screening; for which we provide professional feedback as well as a moderate production budget (approx. 15,000 SEK). You will be invited to access all the faculties across Konstfack’s departments, meet visiting artists and curators, be welcomed into graduate seminars, as well as be introduced to Nordic and international networks in arts, architecture, design or craft. The program also includes one professional trip. In recent years we visited and reported from the 11th Gwangju Biennale, Manifesta 10 in St. Petersburg or the 8th Gothenburg Biennale.

Collaboration with Tensta Konsthall
Next to the individual projects, we work closely with Tensta Konsthalland its director Maria Lind. We are invited to contribute to the public program in the series of on-going exhibitions under the title The Eros Effect Art, Solidarity Movements and the Struggle for Social Justice. In the current year we co-curate The Trial by Italian artist Rossella Biscotti, a four-hour performance based on the original courtroom recordings from the 1983-84 trial of members of Autonomia Operaia, who were arrested across Italy on charges of terrorism. The Trial will be presented at Tensta Konsthall on the January 29, 2017.

CuratorLab is open to everybody interested working with and against the ideas of curating and the curatorial, however solid experience, grounded interest and a sense of commitment are necessary.
