Content description

Critical museology: a visual interpretation via art and curatorial practice

This module speculates on the notion of the “utopian museum” through an investigation of the practice of artists, artist-curators and independent curators from the late 1960s to the present. The teaching methods use visual images, archive material, and fictional and documentary films. Participants are encouraged to develop their own interpretation of the subject.
