Curating Post Migration implicates the creation of agonistic public spaces. Curating is Activism.
The MAS in Curating (Postgraduate Programme in Curating), together with the experience of Museum Bärengasse, gave me the possibility to create as a curator. It made me understand how self branding and self initiative are unavoidable nowadays. The international joint participation made me perceive and get involved in other narratives and cultural activities. And, of course, to meet new best friends and colleagues.
