History of de Appel CP

Initiated in 1994, the Curatorial Programme of de Appel arts centre aims to offer young curators a condensed package of experiences and skills that can be seen as instruments to enhance the development of their professional career.

The ten-month long Curatorial Programme exists in its current form since 2006, with a reshaped curriculum and an extended tutorial team. It encompasses a dense array of seminars, workshops, excursions (including a three-week research trip to a destination outside Western Europe), practice-related assignments and encounters with artists and art professionals.

The programme pays attention to the history of exhibition-making, diverse curatorial practices, institution building and project management. The programme is characterised by a specific focus on ´curating in the expanded field´, which is investigated through the polarity between ‘freelance ’ and ‘institutional’ curating and the notion ‘context-responsive’ curating.
