CURATING ON THE WEB: EXHIBITING INTERNET-BASED ART
An Online Course by Node Center



Since its beginning, the internet has been used for practices that take the web as an artistic medium in itself. In that sense, Internet art is a site-specific art form, dependent on its being online – and connected to other entities in the network.

This course gives you an insight into the processes and methods of curating ephemeral, internet-based art and the challenges these can pose to you as curator. It introduces the platforms and websites where these exhibitions are shown, in both institutional as well as independent contexts.

The course aims to give you theoretical and practical tools to curate the web, how to manage your curatorial projects as well as how to launch your online exhibition. It also touches upon how to document your exhibition and artworks for archival use and how to promote it. Included in the course is a practical assignment, where the participants conceptualize and develop an internet-based curatorial proposal and are given feedback and advice for future project development.


*Video-conferences every Monday at 7pm Central European Time. Recordings available in case you miss a live session!

- Duration: June 11 - July 7, 2018
- Application deadline: June 13, 2018
- Lecturer: Tina Madsen
- Participation fee: 154 EUR
