After the educational and curatorial turn, as progressive moments in promoting dissociative diversity of pluri-contemporary cultural practices, an urgent problem in reactivating cultural action would be (re)considering the critical trajectories and conditional contexts of curatorial education. Without claiming to outline an analysis para-frame of the new spirit of curatorship that lies in store in the most immediate future, this book proposes instead the crossing of a mediating space of some current visions, perspectives and actions in the field of curatorial studies carried out in higher art education, with a focus on the European context, with a case study as an exception in the American context.
The structure of the authorial contributions is generated around the conception issues of the intersectional singularity of each context of (in)formation and development of the (master, postgraduation or doctoral) curatorial study programme (educational narrative), of policies (frames and trajectories), of curriculum (research actions), of method application (practising modalities) and of project run (as case studies). The presentation of each specific curatorial study programme (rather from the point of view of the philosophy of the curatorial, of the program conception and production than from the perspective of the formal academic pedagogical articulation) is introduced by each author through a personal view of ”curatorial education” (as a contemporary dimension of art education).
