On curating performative practices with Nora-Swantje Almes

The Department of Theory and History of Art of VŠVU and the Július Koller Society cordially invite you to a online Nora-Swantje Almes talk on curating performative practices. The talk will be a journey through the core curatorial projects that lead to our ongoing exhibition Hungry Is My Favourite Word. How can methodologies be built over years of practice? What are the challenges and opportunities in curating performative practice?
