Water Cooler Talks

Event14 – 16 February 2020


On the occasion of Rundgang at Städelschule, the students of the master’s programme Curatorial Studies present the Water Cooler Talks. For three days, this series of events provides an open platform to exchange and discuss ideas together with artists, curators, theoreticians and activists on shifting boundaries in the contemporary art world(s).

This year's discussions, a lecture performance and a film screening will focus on Queer Ecologies and the tension between artistic and curatorial practice. By queering we mean a critical approach towards the constructs of identity practices and norms. The series of events focuses on possibilities and challenges of obvious and subtle queer practices in relation to the environment. How are certain categories produced and defined? How can dichotomous relationships – nature/culture, humans/environment, self/other, production/reception – be shifted, irritated and thought differently? The approach of the Water Cooler Talks is contextual and offers the opportunity to reflect on our own curatorial practices.

Curatorial Studies – Theorie – Geschichte – Kritik is a joint master’s programme between the Hochschule für Bildende Künste – Städelschule and the Goethe-Universität. As a cooperation with MUSEUM MMK FÜR MODERNE KUNST, Städel Museum and Liebieghaus, Historisches Museum, Weltkulturen Museum and Portikus, the programme’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.
