Curating Choreography: Choreography and Visual Arts

CuP 01,02,07,09

In the seminar we will examine the notion of choreography especially in the relation to the recent exploration of choreographic practice, performance and choreographic exposition in visual arts. Starting from the thought that choreography is not related only to dance, but to the broader practice of moving bodies, relations between things, bodies and ideas (like social choreography, choreography in the museum, urban choreography, choreography of the cells, etc.) the seminar will examine the ways how visual arts deals with choreographic questions. What are the temporal and spatial dimensions of choreographic approach in visual arts? How to think about expositions, installations and exhibiting movement today? How is choreography related to the practice of curating?
