CALL FOR APPLICATIONS: CuratorLab 2006/2007 Stockholm


Stockholm – Paris – Nicosia – Istanbul – Berlin

A combination of a residency and a research/project based program, which will travel between Stockholm, Paris, Nicosia, Istanbul and Berlin.

Application Deadline

May 15, 2006

The new CuratorLab is an international one-year residency and a research/project based program designed for emerging curators, critics, artists, writers and theorists. CuratorLab provides a test bed for each participant underpinned by an intense critical dialogue with an international core-faculty, and invited curators, artists and theorists and other experts who participate in seminars and discussions. Participants are expected to develop the content of the program by organizing special seminars on their research topics in collaboration with the faculty of CuratorLab and international institutions.

From 2006 CuratorLab is a traveling program, meaning that participants may choose to live where they wish as the seminars move between Stockholm, Berlin, Paris, Nicosia and Istanbul between September 2006 and June 2007.

The program is structured into one or two-week intense residencies in a city every month. Each residency will consist of a seminar with one or several invited international guest speakers, as well as studio visits and meetings with artists, curators, theorists and other professionals of interest for the participants in each city. Participants will also be expected to organize short public presentations in each city.


Each participant is expected to produce an individual or collaborative project; the final form of the project, and where it is presented, is decided by each participant in dialogue with their personal advisor, who he or she has chosen. CuratorLab provides each participant access to its extensive international network of cultural institutions and alternative project spaces.

Collaborators 2006/2007

Collaborators with CuratorLab for 2006/2007 are Platform Garanti Contemporary Art Center in Istanbul and its director Vasif Kortun, Centre Culturel Suedois in Paris, Moderna Museet and its curator John Peter Nilsson and Bonniers Konsthall and its director Sara Arrhenius in Stockholm. CuratorLab has also together with five other institutions been invited by the Manifesta 6 curators Mai Abu El Dahab, Anton Vidokle and Florian Waldvogel to collaborate with Manifesta 6 in Nicosia in the fall of 2006. CuratorLab will travel to Nicosia for at least two residencies with the goal to produce a collaborative project to be presented at Manifesta 6 in the late fall of 2006.
