Course content

Live performance gains more and more terrain with the visual arts world. Although during the 20th century there have been many moments of live arts within visual arts contexts, it's only since 2000's that its influence became widespread and structural within established visual arts institutions. How do live arts influence museums' modes of operation? And how does the context of the museum offer new possibilities for the development of live arts?
During a one week exchange between the residents of the Master Dance and the curators-in-development of Curatorial Studies, the participants delve into the history of curation and live arts, different points of view and curatorial practices are examined, and the participants take the modernist building of Arts Centre deSingel as a playground to organize a live arts exhibition.
