The English-speaking, internationally active Postgraduate Programme in Curating (CAS/MAS) shows the projects of its seven graduates in video presentations, text and images. This year’s diploma show is dedicated to the multi-part project Choreographing the Public, which comprises various exhibitions and event formats and was initiated together with the international curator Sergio Edelsztein.
The curatorial project Choreographing the Public is a co-curated and multi-formatted program featuring exhibitions, performances, interventions, and screenings taking place from October 2019 to June 2020 at the non-profit and independent art space, the OnCurating Project Space, as well as at other collaborating venues in Zurich. From the idea of impulse and movement taking place in the exhibition space, Choreographing the Public seeks to reconfigure the roles of the creator and the audience. Receding from the traditional experience of art, the curatorial project sheds light on the virtues of participation in generating new and multi-faceted narratives. By means of metaphorical and invisible arrows, visitors are invited to take experimental routes, navigate, move around, interact and freely engage with the environment, while at the same time becoming the choreographers of the works.
Inevitably, the situation in which we have all found ourselves has shifted the understanding of participation and presence in space. The last Event#10 of the programme will revive the special moments that punctuated the programme and debate these questions of future participation, online on 13 June 2020.
The website degree.curating.org will be launched specifically for this year’s degree show of the Postgraduate Programme in Curating. It shows the various events and projects the programme undertook in the last two years together with the MAS students: from publishing two OnCurating Issues (www.on-curating.org) to shared exhibitions, and MAS projects, to excursions, and inputs by international curators.
