Postgraduate Programme
'Curatorial Knowledge & Art Journalism' (Kuratorisches Wissen & Kunstpublizistik)
Ruhr University Bochum

Start: February 2014

The part-time postgraduate course, devised by the Ruhr University Bochum, is aimed specifically at the requirements of exhibiting modern and contemporary art and writing about it. It is run in cooperation with many museums and exhibition spaces in Northrhine-Westphalia. In-depth tutorials, work discussions and workshops with internationally renowned curators, artists, journalists, writers and other experienced representatives from the fields of exhibitions and media, lead to a thorough, practice-oriented knowledge of the art of the 20th and 21st century.

During their postgraduate programme the participants will acquire key areas of expertise for their professional activities, both practical and theoretical. They study the history, theory and practice of curating and the categories and criteria of art journalism.

The advanced training programme provides:
• consolidation and application of specialist knowledge about modern and contemporary art
• critical analysis, reflection and mediation of exhibitions
• debate of current theories and methods
• acquisition and adaptation of expertise in conceiving and realising curatorial projects
• analysis and development of innovative formats for the presentation and mediation of art
• extension of target-group-specific writing skills

The programme can be studied in modular parts and alongside work.
