The encompassing title “Third, fourth and fifth spaces” marks the trajectory back and fourth from the academic-driven notion of curatorship towards curating and curatorial practices and, consequently, a democratic approach to knowledge and culture despite the commodification of education and the festivalisation of art events.

We wish to look at the practices that reassess this notion today and are situated by its urgent (geo)political, humanistic, instigating and controversial potentialities. As well as practices that are informed by subjective drives, subversions, opacities, risks, desires, beliefs and solidarities. We would like to discuss how subjects are positioned in these forms of editorial processes, as producers and as publics who are becoming interchangeable, how affects and participation are positioned and which new forms developed recently.
