Symposium: Curating Everything (Curating as Symptom)

20.03.2015, 13:00

The ironic title Curating Everything already proposes reading the activity of curating as a social symptom. We presume that the contemporary urge for a curatorial position has an imaginary side: the wish to gain authorship and agency as an illusionary closure in an overall precarious labor situation for cultural producers. The conference will emphasize the multi-media aspect of curating and its special meta-discourse of production and investigate its specific interrelation with post-Fordist societies.
