Stedelijk Studies | Lose Yourself! On Labyrinthine Exhibitions as Curatorial Model
However, these large-scale, collaborative and comprehensive exhibition installations have attracted both the expanding academic field of exhibition history and current curatorial practices. But how are we to understand the body of knowledge produced by a generation of historically conscious, self-reflexive curators and art historians alike? What (critical) models do exhibitions such as Dylaby and HON provide for contemporary curatorial, artistic, and scholarly practices?
During the symposium, a selection of key experts in the field have addressed these questions and framed them in the wider context of the naissance of the modern and contemporary art museum and the role models of Pontus Hultén and Willem Sandberg, our continuous engagement with the art production of the 1960s, the place of these exhibitions in the wider artistic oeuvres of the participating artists, post-1960s “labyrinthine” exhibition practices at large, and the growing discipline of exhibition history.
For this themed issue of Stedelijk Studies the editors have invited several authors, who spoke at the conference, to submit a written contribution. In addition to these essays, interviews will be included and the video registration of the symposium will be made accessible. The issue has room for 4 additional essays. The editors particularly look forward to receiving abstracts on the topic of the labyrinthine model from a global perspective.
The theme issue Lose Yourself! will be edited by Dr. Margriet Schavemaker and Drs. Dorine de Bruijne.
