Corso Curatori

Teaching

Along a multidisciplinary path, the training itinerary revolves around practical and methodological acquisition of the various skills of the curator.

The program is structured through nine theme-based modules, dealing with the various fields of curatorship. Course attendance is concentrated into one week per month, alternating high-density phases of stimuli and external contents with periods of developments of participants’ individual work.

In parallel to the modules, throughout the year the students are supported in the development of their own curatorial profile: Visual Culture, Critical Writing and Planning are conceived as workshops in which the participants are stimulated to take part in the discussion, where they may undertake new projects and implement their own individual work.

Alongside the program of lessons, students work individually on the development of new curatorial projects in which to present their own critical vision and put the numerous skills acquired throughout the course into practice.

Students take also part to encounters with artists and art stakeholders, internship programs, study visits and seminars held by Italian and international curators. Fondazione Fotografia makes its own network of contacts available to the students in order to support their first steps in the art system.
