Curatopia: Histories, Theories, Practices
Museums and the Future of Curatorship

On July 6-7 2015 the symposium Curatopia brings together leading curators, critics and scholars from a range of fields in international institutions to debate critical issues in curatorial histories, theories and practices.

06.07.2015 – 07.07.2015

Dr. Philipp Schorch (Co-conveners: A/Prof. Conal McCarthy, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand; Prof. Eveline Dürr, LMU)

As museums continue to change in twenty first century, the ‘figure of the curator’ appears to be in flux. What is the future of curatorial practice? Is there a vision for an ideal model, a Curatopia, whether in the form of a utopia or dystopia? The symposium facilitates intense thinking through ‘the figure of the curator’ and will be open to museum professionals, other academics and students. Further information (PDF, 330 KB)
