Texte 4e de couverture : Pauline de la Boulaye. English translation : Nicolas de Moy & Philippe Hunt.

Le mot anglais care vient du latin cura: soin, extraction dune cavit. Cura hante
bien des mots dans beaucoup de langues, et en particulier le mot curator. Depuis
le 18me sicle, la traduction en franais est conservateur: celui qui prend soin
des collections des muses et organise leur mise en exposition.
Rcemment, curator est employ sans nuance pour dsigner celui ou celle qui
propose une slection de contenus. Dans le monde virtuel, des data curators choisissent, ditent et partagent des informations. Ils pratiquent une extraction superficielle dun puits sans fonds: Internet. Tandis que, dans leffervescence artistique
contemporaine, des curators slectionnent, ex-posent, mettent au-dehors, ce dont
ils souhaitent partager leur intrt, leur conviction, leur qute.
Cura hante le mot curiosit et cest elle qui guide les nouveaux curators comme elle
inspirait les collectionneurs pour leur cabinets de curiosit. Hors du muse, des
centres dart, les nouveaux curators cherchent aussi fabriquer des espaces
autres. Depuis un demi-sicle, on les a vus crer de nouveaux plateaux et autres
territoires dans des biennales, des festivals.
Et maintenant? La production artistique dans les villes occidentales ne cesse
daugmenter et avec elle la ncessit dex-poser, faire trace. Il sagit ici dinventer
votre mtier. CARE est un incubateur pour votre projet embryonnaire. Tout lenjeu
sera de contextualiser; cest--dire crer un format adapt, une communaut et
une conomie pour les objets de votre curiosit. Soigner leur inscription dans
lespace et dans le temps.

The English word care comes from Latin cura, concern, attention. Cura haunts quite
a few words in various languages, and in particular the word curator. Since the 18th
century the French translation has been conservateur (curator in English): someone who manages the collections in a museum and organises their exhibition.
Recently, curator has been used in a broader manner to designate those who propose a selection of contents. In the virtual world data curators select, edit and share
information; This practice of extraction and programming draws trends and analyses from the Internet, that new bottomless well.
In the current artistic turmoil, curators select, ex-hibit/ex-pose, bring out the
objects of their concern which they wish to share. Cura haunts the word curiosity,
and curiosity it is which guides todays curators just as it inspired collectors for their
cabinets of curiosities. Outside museums and arts centres the new curators strive
to create spaces that are different. For the past half century they have created new
sets and other territories in biennials and festivals.
What now? Artistic production in Western cities is growing unremittingly, which
brings the need to ex-hibit, to leave traces. It isnt a matter of training for some
employment, to fit somewhere. CARE is an incubator for your embryonic project.
The whole stake will be to contextualise the object of your curiosity, i.e. to provide
it with a suitable format, a community and an economics. A time to take care of its
inscription in time and space.

CARE MASTERS PROGRAMME IN CURATORIAL


PRACTICES
Care is a Masters programme whose aim is to
reflect and renew practices of exhibition and mediation. This programme is being structured in close
collaboration with specialised institutions and enjoys
a special partnership with the CENTRALE for
Contemporary Art, Brussels municipalitys centre
for contemporary art.
TWO COURSES
CARE proposes two distinct courses
1.CARE ACADEMIC MA meant for students who
already have a BA in the arts. This is a two-year MA
recognised by the Fdration Wallonie-Bruxelles
and therefore internationally (120 ECTS). This MA
is closely linked to existing MA courses at the
ArBA-EsA.
2.CARE EXECUTIVE MASTERS PROGRAMME is a
one-year course meant for people with diverse
academic and professional backgrounds : artists,
curators, graphic designers, journalists, performance artists, art historians or any person who
has a marked interest in questions of exhibition and
who shows a wish to enter the network of professionals in the practice of exhibition and in mediation.
These two courses will work in close collaboration.
Care is a laboratory in which students mix together
within seminars and group projects. Creating a
group gathering together practitioners, students
with a BA in the arts and others with more unusual
careers is one of CAREs stakes.
CO-ORGANISATION WITH AN ART CENTRE: the
Brussels CENTRALE for Contemporary Art
The collaboration with CENTRALE, whose premises
will be at students disposal, will make it possible to
experience back and forth movements between
practice and theory on a 1:1 scale, thereby leading to
a wide knowledge of practices linked to the fields of
exhibiting and mediating.
Care also sets up synergies with cultural institutions, art centres, schools and partners on a national
and international level.
