PROGRAMME 2011/2012: Curating in the expanded field

Application deadline: 15 January 2011


Initiated in 1994, the Curatorial Programme of de Appel arts centre wishes to offer young curators a condensed package of experiences and skills that can be seen as instruments to enhance the development of their professional career. The eight-month long Curatorial Programme exists in its current form since 2006, with a thematically organised curriculum and an extended tutorial team. It encompasses a dense array of theoretical seminars, thematic workshops, field trips in Europe and Asia, practice-related assignments and encounters with artists and art professionals. The programme pays attention to the history of exhibition-making, diverse curatorial practices, institution building and project management. The unique thematic focus is on the polarity between 'free-lance ' and 'institutional' curating and on the examination of 'context-responsive' curating. The programme explores through which formats and methodologies curators deal with the presentation of art in the 'expanded field' outside of the white cube and how they respond to the cultural moment.

The following parts of the programme are considered to be of vital importance:

-    The opportunity to research theoretical issues and developments in regular sessions with a tutorial team consisting e.g. of Floris Alkemade (architect,NL), Liesbeth Bik (visual artist, NL), Ann Demeester (director de Appel arts centre, BE/NL), Charles Esche (director Van Abbe Museum, UK/NL), Annie Fletcher (curator, IR/NL), Elena Filipovic (curator/writer, US/BE), Henk Slager (philosopher/curator, NL), Lisette Smits (independent researcher/curator, NL), and Jan Verwoert (art critic, DE).

-    The opportunity to meet and have an exchange with a large number of artists, curators, critics and other international professionals through thematic seminars and informal encounters. Guest teachers over the past years have been e.g. Hans Ulrich Obrist, Gerardo Mosquera, Ann Goldstein, Paul O'Neill, Paulo Herkenhoff, Jacques Rancière, Simon Sheikh, Pier Luigi Tazzi, Jan Hoet, Teresa Gleadowe, Tirdad Zolghadr, Ulay and Nina Möntmann.

-    The opportunity to get acquainted with de Appel arts centre from 'the inside', and get a better insight into the mechanisms and governing principles of a contemporary institution for visual arts.

-    The possibility to make a long journey outside of Western Europe and a minimum of 7 field trips, within Europe.


1.    A letter of motivation in which you state your personal drive as well as your expectations of the programme.
2.    A proposal for a project (5-15 pages), including: concept and location of the project (main focus, explanation of context and relevance), the participating artists (including some image material), a realistic budget, a publicity plan (not obliged)
3.    A CV, including an extensive description of your relevant working experience
4.    Two written references of (former) tutors, professors or employers, in English.

On the basis of the submitted documents twelve candidates will be short-listed. These candidates will be invited to come to Amsterdam in the second week of March for an interview with an international jury, who will select the final six participants of the Curatorial Programme 2011/2012.
