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

Open application period:
1–30 April 2011 
Program dates:
21 June–16 September 2011
The Node Center for Curatorial Studies is a platform of formation,
experimentation, and diffusion in the field of curatorship and in the
contemporary artistic practices.
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 cultural agents, art shows, 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.
Each year, the center will be immersed in a specific line of research.
During the period of June–September 2011, the line of the program will be: “The logic of the limit: transversal curatorial processes.”
During that period, the residents will enjoy a shared office to develop their own theoretical investigation, and an experimental practice area for exhibitions.
An application form, information about tuition, and instructions for applying can be obtained at the Center’s website:
