Postmodern Education.
Round and Round it Goes Where it Stops Nobody Nows

If the freelance curator inhabits a hybrid role, oscillating between different positions in a practice conditioned by impermanence, performativity and transitoriness, the critical potential of his or her practice lies in its freedom to continually reformulate the constellation of operations on the one hand and positions on the other. So the tactical use of the institutions by cultural producers and by engaged counterpublics, which has been in evidence since the early days of modernism is based in a double-agency that this activity demands- in working with and against an institution, which may be also the case for curatorial programs and the pedagogic challenges which are posed (in different ways) both to lecturers and participants.
With contributions about projects by alumni of Postgraduate Program in Curating, Zurich. Damian Jurt: Curation of the Loge, Berne. Irene Grillo, Maren Brauner: Kunstpassanten.
