מעשה באוצרות (באנגלית)- Points of Reference: Thinking about Curating in the Global Scene
A collaborative online course for students of the Art History and Theory Master Program at Vilnius Art Academy (VAA) and students from Policy and Theory of the Arts Master’s Program at Bezalel. The course will critically discuss curating exhibitions in digital times in which the curatorial discourse shifts towards the global. At the same time, it is also a PC (politically correct) period and a time of protest against the uni- mono-thinking patterns
. Perspectives from the South or the East, perceptions of Blackness or Queer, are examples of multi-focal changes.
When will the European hegemonic point of view seize to be the only perspective through which we can convey our narratives? How can we meet alternatives and what are their visual manifestations?
In this course we will read theoretical texts to ensure a common background for discussions on the following topics: Central exhibitions from the recent art history of Lithuania and Israel; Radical and marginal initiatives embraced by mainstream arts and local authorities; Exhibitions representing these countries on international platforms (such as the Balkan Trienniale or the Venice Biennale).
During the course guest lecturers will provide insight on exhibitions from Lithuania and Israel.
