Students and lecturers, as well as all interested guests from outside, are cordially invited.

This lecture will observe the curatorial as a work in process testing identity, structural questions, temporalities, and performativity. A series of possibilities for curatorial approaches to contemporary art practice both within independent and institutional frameworks will be presented and discussed.
