CURATE OR DIE
THE FUTURE OF CURATING
Series of discussions at KW Institute for Contemporary Art in Berlin
Together with the Bureau des Arts Plastiques Berlin, KW starts a series of discussions with the title CURATE OR DIE. The first discussion takes place on October 29, 2007.
The focus of classical museum work seems to have changed in the past fifteen years. The balance of exhibiting, collecting, researching, and conserving activities has shifted towards a marked concentration on exhibiting. Both the public eye and possible sponsors tend to privilege the spectacular potential inherent in exhibitions. In collaboration with the Berlin-based Bureau des Arts Plastiques, KW Institute for Contemporary Art is planning a series of panel debates addressing these and related questions. Curate or Die seems to be the only possible future perspective.
