Water Cooler Talks

Event15 – 16 February 2019


On the occasion of Rundgang, students of the master’s program Curatorial Studies are presenting a series of discussions with curators, artists and members of the art world(s) on possible approaches and current developments in the art world. 

Questioning the universality of the museum as an institution, the notion of the “global museum” will begin the talk series and attempt at giving an overlook into current changes in museum and exhibition systems. The following talk will take a more performative format with a poetry reading by the artist Bunny Rogers in the Mensa of Daimlerstraße 32. Bunny Rogers taught as a guest professor at the Städelschule last semester and realized the exhibition Pectus Excavatum, currently on view at Zollamt MMK, both in the context of the festival Frankfurter Positionen. On the Saturday of Rundgang, the screening of Lynn Hershman Leeson’s Teknolust (2002) will be followed by a conversation between Philippe Pirotte and Lynn Hershman Leeson about the artist’s ongoing examination of technology and its relationship to humans. With a similar outlook to the implications of technology, artist Harm van den Dorpel will discuss the possibilities of blockchain in regards to artists, galleries and exhibitors, touching on aspects of artistic ownership in a digital world.

Curatorial Studies – Theorie – Geschichte – Kritik is a joint master‘s program between the Hochschule für Bildende Künste–Städelschule and the Goethe-Universität. As a cooperation with MUSEUM MMK FÜR MODERNE KUNST, Städel Museum and Liebighaus, Historisches Museum, Weltkulturen Museum and Portikus, the program’s distinctiveness lies in its internationally unique combination of university, art school and museums. Through innovative teaching and learning methods, students are able to combine academic study and research with curatorial approaches and experiences in the occupational field.
