Curatorial Program – Innovators Grant by NODE Center Berlin
APPLICATION DUE: 15th. Feb 2015
A two-month long program to develop experimental learning methods in fields outside of art.
Node Center is an art organization focused on curatorial practice. We work to expand and challenge the current limits of art and curation to stimulate different ways of approaching these practices. Through our Curatorial Program – Innovators Grant we bring together six risky thinkers/makers willing to expand the use of art and curation. With the idea of looking out from an art perspective, we will explore through the Program how art can enrich and provide practical uses to education.
The Program will focus on art-thinking rather than the art-object, applying the possibilities of art to education in other fields. By art-thinking, we are referring to strategies of knowledge that question the everyday, using intuitive, creative and poetic approaches to find different access points or pathways to known topics. Possible techniques could include making unexpected connections between disparate topics, ‘learning by doing’ and emphasizing the visual.
