Curatorial development in Scotland

Curating Europes’ Futures

Lina Džuverovic

30.10.2014, 18:00 - 20:00 - Cinema, CCA, Glasgow

Led by the practitioner-research networks Variant and Mother Tongue, Framework was a co-organiser of a series of discussions taking place throughout 2014 under the title ‘Curating Europes’ Futures’. This series also brought together the Creative Futures Institute of the University of the West of Scotland,  Research School of The Glasgow School of Art and was hosted by CCA, Glasgow.

In the first session of the series, independent curator and PhD candidate at Royal College of Art/Tate, Lina Džuverovic explores the top-down use of culture for the purposes of ‘soft power’ as part of national branding, possibilities of artistic autonomy and modes of resistance against the commodification of cultural content.

Curating Europes’ Futures is a collaboratively-organised series that explores contemporary curatorial and artistic practices which have critically addressed themselves to the processes of socio-economic restructuring, identity politics, gender dynamics and cultural policies within ‘post-bloc’ Europe. These discussions are free, open to the public, aimed principally at artists, researchers, curators and those with an active interest in the changing contexts of interdisciplinary, experimental and investigative curatorial and artistic practices.
