Call for Applications: Cultures of the Curatorial - Master of Arts Program

Application deadline for Wintersemester 2021/22: 30th April 2021

The Academy of Fine Arts Leipzig is welcoming applications for the MA Program Cultures of the Curatorial.
Cultures of the Curatorial is a graduate program which combines practice-based research and theoretical reflection. It addresses people from a variety of disciplinary or professional backgrounds: the arts i.e. visual arts, dance, theatre, film, architecture, design or music as well as cultural mediation, the humanities, social sciences and natural sciences — who have a shared interest in a dedicated practice in the cultural field and in a concentrated, academically grounded acquisition of additional qualifications for their future professional practice in the curatorial field.
Tightly interweaving theory and practice the program addresses in seminars, workshops, lectures and field trips the historical and current relations, conditions and potentials the curatorial has developed as an independent cultural practice. In two curatorial projects the participants will develop their own positions in relation to the current challenges and possibilities of the curatorial.
The seminar sessions usually take place in four to five blocks per semester. This offers the opportunity to continue an occupational activity and follow one’s own projects parallel to the study program.
Please note: German language skills are required for the enrolment into the program. Additional information about the conditions of admission, application procedure and dates can be found on our website.
All application materials must be uploaded between March 1st to April 30, 2021 to the HGB online platform. Applications which have not been received by April 30, 2021 at midnight cannot be considered.
