Diese Veranstaltung ist Teil eines Sonderprogramms von Veranstaltungen, die sich explizit an alle Meisterschüler*innen der HGB richten. Ziel ist die internationale Vernetzung des Meisterschülerstudiums, sowie die Befragung von Strukturen und Formen des Meisterschüler*innenstudiums selbst. "While the term curator seems to illustrate the logics of a market-oriented art system, new strategies can be invented to by-pass institutional implicit guidelines. These strategies rest on the reversal of the couple artist/curator in which the latter is supposed to regulate the explorations of the artist. The notion of extradisciplinary partly covers this expanded artistic territory. Based on a set of situations Jean-Christophe Arcos experienced or generated, the lecture will question the position of curator in creating new contexts." Jean-Christophe Arcos is an art critic and independent curator based in Paris. His research is articulated on the connections of art history and ideas, be they philosophical or political…and the beliefs they generate, exploring contexts and their constraints, particularly the tensions between the exhibition as a medium and the objects/subjects unfolded in them. As a guest curator, he was invited by Palais de Tokyo, Belleville Biennale or Jeune Création, and took part to different research and residency programs, from FRAC Dunkerque to CEA/French curators association or French Institute in Berlin. He contributes with in-depth feature articles in different national publications on a regular basis and his writing is published in catalogues. He was recently nominated for the coveted Prix AICA 2018 FRANCE and for the Palais de Tokyo society award. He has been giving lectures about his curatorial research and journalistic endeavours in different cultural contexts in institutions as Staatliche Akademie der bildenden Künste in Karlsruhe, Sousse Art Institute (Tunisia), at Kunsthaus L6 in Freiburg (Germany) and at last at ENDA (Ecole nationale d’art Paris). Am Donnerstag, 13.12.18 besteht die Möglichkeit zu portfolioviewings und Einzelgesprächen mit Jean-Christophe Arcos. Anmeldungen bitte über Klara Meinhardt: email@example.com oder im Anschluß an seinen Vortrag.
