Zurich University of the Arts, Postgraduate Programme in Curating: Curatorial Writing and Research Module with Michael G. Birchall (Art Historian, Curator, Lecturer)
Drop by and participate in one of our lively classroom discussions, taking place at Kunsthalle Zurich and see for yourself how curating can be taught. The role of the curator is challenging and requires sharp research skills, which can be implemented in curatorial writing on a variety of topics relating to art and society. In this module we look at the relevant skills needed in today’s curatorial practice, by looking at a selection of texts and writing our own. In conjunction with They printed It! postgraduate students will use material in the exhibition on ephemera to produce short texts for one of their writing assignments. You’ll have the chance to produce your own text and develop your writing in a new direction. Reading material will be provided.
