OPEN CALL FOR CURATORS / PILOTENKUECHE April – June 2018

OPEN CALL FOR CURATORS / PILOTENKUECHE April – June 2018

 

"PILOTENKUECHE" is an international art program based in Europe's boomtown Leipzig, Germany. The independent project is organized by artists with a transdisciplinary background between art, theory & diverse sciences with the aim to support and boost artistic experience.

 

The project invites within the “Emerging Curator Program" curators to gain direct experience in the field. Invited curators engage with a group of artists and learn complex social, theoretical and practical aspects of accommodating various concepts and mediums in a single exhibition. This program aims to support the young profesaionals and to connect them to international as well as local artists and the greater Leipzig community. We maintain engagements with several partners, and by introducing our artists to these, make it possible for participants to cooperate with and exhibit in other venues. Our concept encourages experimental strategies and embraces a trans-disciplinary ethos, aiming to provide our participants with the experience of accomplishing something collectively. In a group of around international and local artists a stimulating dialogue becomes vital in fostering an independent position in one's work while binding the individuals temporarily within the group, which leads to a long-term network that exists even after the program is over.

 

Given the chance to connect with artists and expand the personal network we understand the project as a platform for the participating curator, to gain insights as well as to experiment in a practical field, to benefit their own position, concepts, as well as overall career.

 

We're looking for curators to participate on our program in the 35th round during from April - June 2018 until 30.11.17.
