2022/23: Curating through Conflict with Care

Research, workshops, online platform

“Inclusive curating” may sound like a contradiction in terms, since the practice of curating includes selection and thus also exclusion. Derived from the Latin word curare, meaning “to take care,” curation raises the question: Who and what are curators taking care of today?

Curating through Conflict with Care (CCC) is an interdisciplinary, collective research project addressing structural conflicts within Berlin’s cultural landscape and approaches to institutional change. The two-year project starts in 2022 and will consists of three phases—research, workshops, online platform.
