Director of Titanik, Turku and independent curator Mirjami Schuppert, in partnership with Void Gallery, is organising a workshop on Curatorial Ethics. Stemming from her PHD research, this workshop aims to produce a working definition of ethics within the framework of contemporary curatorial practice, and to answer the question: What do we talk about when we talk about curatorial ethics?
Whilst in museology, different guidelines have been established (for example Code of Ethics for Museums, defined by the Museums Association) to guarantee ethical conduct, in contemporary curatorial practice, which is very much about communication, dialogue, interaction, change, and creation, a normative approach would not seem to suffice, but a more flexible approach to ethics is needed.
The expertise of the invited speakers ranges from the question of curatorial authorship, institutional practices, the curatorial, curating as a critical practice to ethics more widely, and feminist curatorial practice. Local curators, artists, and students are invited to participate as active workshop members.
The day will consist of presentations by the speakers, Q&As, and break out sessions to give all participants an opportunity to engage in the conversation.
Maximum participants: 30
