Node Center Berlin announces The Curatorial Studies Residency Program designed for emerging curators who may wish to expand their professional practice in Berlin.

Node is launching a Curatorial Studies Residency Program for research and practice in curatorial studies. The program understands curatorship as exhibition praxis, allowing direct experimentation with the exhibition space. Additionally, the program will be reinforced with activities such as workshops, seminars, meetings with art professionals, and visits to exhibition spaces.

Moreover, participants are expected to take an active role in organizing the program (i.e., managing seminars, workshops, guest lectures, exhibitions, etc.).

The residents registered within the Node Center's studies program will develop specific theoretical-practical research during their residency, which will include a participation on a publication and the curation of a final show. Each year, the center will be immersed in a specific line of research.

During 2011, the line of the program will be: 'The logic of the limit: transversal curatorial processes'. The different lines of research explore the curatorial practices that expand their own mechanisms beyond the normal 'taxonomic' processes of the art exhibition (i.e., classification, study, and exhibition), generating new discursive possibilities.


An application form, information about tuition, and instructions for applying can be obtained at the Center's website:

Afterwards, an online interview will take place with each applicant. This will give us a better idea of each applicant, as well as their main areas of interest. As soon as we receive the applications we will contact each participant to schedule an interview.
