International Master Programme in Curating Art
The Stockholm University calls for applications to its International Master Programme in Curating Art, including Management and Law. Curating Art specialises in the combination of art management, art history, law and practical curatorial work in a composition that is unusual in comparison to similar courses internationally. Applications are encouraged from persons within the academic field as well as with curatorial and artistic experience.
Curating Art is a full time Master´s programme offered by the Department of Art History in collaboration with departments of Business Economics and Law at Stockholm University. The course faculty consists of representatives of these departments, as well as directors and curators at leading art institutions in Stockholm. Guest lecturers include artists, critics, curators and scholars practising in Sweden and internationally.
The programme spans over a 2-year period and consists of theoretical courses, including the writing of a thesis, a ten week internship in Sweden or abroad, and work on a curatorial project. The teaching takes on the forms of lectures, seminars, and supervised work both individually and in groups. Furthermore, each student has a personal tutor from the course faculty.
The programme encourages creativity and innovation as well as an awareness of traditions and a responsibility for museum collections, bridging institutional and alternative environments.
Application deadline for the 2011/2012 courses starting in August 2011 is 15 January 2011.
