Ways of Curating: On Art, Life, and Knowledge

April 2, 2021 at 9:00 pm CEST

Start time where you are: Your time zone couldn't be detected

Interintellect Patricia Hurducas will lead a discussion on curation – from curation of objects in museums to curation of ideas in our personal projects. How can we become better curators and what does that entail?

The word curation comes from the Latin word curare, meaning to look after. In Roman times, it meant to take care of the bath houses. In medieval times, it designated the priest who cared for souls. In the 18th century, it meant looking after collections of art. At this Interintellect salon we will look at the art of curation exploring different mediums of expression and different facets of life – from the online to the offline world. We will discuss about methods of selecting and curating the knowledge we find online and how can we know what is important and meaningful to us in a vast ocean of information.

  • What does curation mean today and what is the role of the curator?
  • What makes for a good curator?
  • Is it easier or more difficult curating in a world of information abundance?
  • What does our antilibraries and our libraries say about us?
  • Why is curation important and what are the most important aspects that need to be considered when embarking on a new writing/art/business project?
  • How can curation improve our online and offline experiences?
