Abstract

What happens to curatorial practices when treated as multi-voiced, pluralistic, and process-based? Politics of Curatorship: Collective and Affective Interventions asks what curatorship could be when it is freed from its elitist notions. It gathers essays, academic articles, poems, interviews, and photo essays from 33 contributors from all over the world. Together, they seek to open up the term from a linear and often single-voiced method, offering to understand curating also as a queer, non-binary, or a mundane, individual activity that includes one’s own experiences and perceptions. On the occasion of Norient’s 20th anniversary, we attempt to disentangle the term curatorship from the received definition as a mere selecting process within the creative realm.
