ANN: Engaged Curatorial Practice – M.A. Degree in Exhibition Theory and Practice (Universität für angewandte Kunst, Vienna – starts Oct 2024)

How can museums change society? What consequences can curatorial actions have? Curators and educators, organizers and designers, artists and scholars today are looking for ways not only to critically analyze existing notions and narratives of exhibition making but also to intervene in them and reformulate them through curatorial practices.

The /ecm Master’s Program in Exhibition Theory and Practice at the University of Applied Arts Vienna is a two-year, postgraduate program that provides comprehensive knowledge and skills in the expanded field of museums and exhibitions. In collaborative processes, we experiment with different methods of curatorial research, theory and practice. Thus, discourses, ruptures, and horizons emerge that challenge the canon, occupy exhibition spaces and the public sphere, and seek not only to digitize museums and collections, but above all to democratize them.
