Gallerist Master Course. Module I: Curatorial Practice and Decolonial Discourse (lecture by Anna Goetz)

Gallerist Master Course 2020. Module I: Anna Goetz. Curatorial Practice and Decolonial Discourse

October 5 – 6, from 2.30 to 6pm


Contemporary art is global as much as local. It echoes local issues symptomatic of global dynamics. Its organization, however, is defined by institutionalized structures of power and constructs of thinking shaped by modernity and colonization. In the seminar, we will critically analyze different exhibitions or initiatives that try to deconstruct these institutionalized, hierarchical readings and include alternative narratives – this means handing over authority and giving the floor to other voices in order to involve their perspectives and individual experiences. Furthermore, we will openly discuss projects and approaches of our own, and thus, critically reflect on our positions within the art world infrastructure.


This seminar is in English.


Organized by the Estonian Contemporary Art Development Center (ECADC), the fifth master course for gallerists will take place this autumn in Tallinn, offering professional training in art management, curating, and gallery management for both practicing and novice art professionals. The aim of the course is to provide participants with knowledge about the dynamics of the processes inside of the art world.
