Node Center for Curatorial Studies
Node Center for Curatorial Studies was created in order to offer a platform to teach, experiment, and investigate subjects related to curatorial studies and contemporary art practices.
The Center's core activity stems from the Curatorial Studies Program that offers its participants the possibility of expanding their work experience, with professional feedback and technical support, by developing projects in Berlin.
Each year, Node focuses on a key topic that questions inherited curatorial practices and that invents new ways of creating knowledge by finding new possibilities in the exhibition process.
Residents of the Curatorial Studies Program along with artists, curators and guest specialists take on these key topics in order to create a solid body of research.
Node is a dynamic space where professional interactions take place in the form of seminars, artists presentations, and other activities that explore the complexity of curatorial work. It is also a meeting point for resident curators, artists and people responsible for the artistic scene in Berlin.
Node hosts temporary exhibitions organized by our residents, that serve to create discussion forums that illustrates issues that can only be understood by its practical application.
Node also serves the purpose of creating awareness among the general public about innovative cultural practices.
Each trimester a publication is created that encompasses the conclusions that were reached by residents who designed exhibitions or completed investigations during this time.
