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
The curriculum revolves around theoretical issues in regular sessions with
a tutorial team consisting of
Floris Alkemade (architect,NL), Liesbeth Bik (visual artist, NL), Ann
Demeester (director de Appel arts centre, BE/NL), Charles Esche (director
Van Abbe Museum, UK/NL), Annie Fletcher (curator, IR/NL), Elena Filipovic
(curator/writer, US/BE), Ann Goldstein (director Stedelijk museum), Henk
Slager (philosopher/curator, NL), Lisette Smits (independent
researcher/curator, NL), Jan Verwoert (art critic, DE)

The eight-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

Additionally the programme offers

- The opportunity to get acquainted with de Appel arts centre from 'the
inside', and get a better insight into the mechanisms and governing
principles of a contemporary institution for visual arts.

- The possibility to make a research trip outside of Western Europe and a
minimum of 5 field trips, within Europe.

- The opportunity to meet and have an exchange with a large number of
artists, curators, critics and other international professionals through
thematic seminars and informal encounters. Guest teachers over the past
years have been e.g. Claire Bishop, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Gerardo Mosquera,
Paul O'Neill, Paulo Herkenhoff, Jacques Rancière, Simon Sheikh, Pier Luigi
Tazzi, Jan Hoet, Teresa Gleadowe, Tirdad Zolghadr, Ulay and Nina Möntmann.

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

3. A CV, including an extensive description of your relevant working
4. Two written references of (former) tutors, professors or employers, in
