Course on curating

Picturing “Greatness”, exhibition curated by Barbara Kruger, 1988, MoMA, New York

Bulegoa z/b is an office of art and knowledge. We have often wondered what curating can mean – if the umbrella term could cover sensibilities and ways of working in different areas; if we can speak of curating in the specific sense of making exhibitions, but also in an expanded sense.

From there, curating can be seen as an impulse that responds to a desire – a desire to see something where before there was nothing; to give rise to an exhibition, an artefact composed by objects that share time and space; to generate thought through the relationships that come about between the objects; and also, to quote artist Luca Frei, a desire to produce a moment of attention.
