Curating has positioned itself worldwide as a powerful practice by contributing to an increased understanding of social situations, conflicts and negotiations. In globalised culture, a strong knowledge of artists and creative practitioners working in diverse geographical, cultural and political contexts is crucial. Therefore, a vibrant border-crossing network as well as the ability to move in transnational settings are a precondition to contemporary curation. Curating on the Move 2019 took place at Pro Helvetia’s Salon Suisse on the Guidecca island in Venice. 24 artists, curators, designers, scholars and art educators from Germany, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Morocco, Scotland, Switzerland and USA participated. The workshop was composed by various learning formats ranging from close-reading sessions and theoretical debates, over group work and guided tours, up to lectures by researchers and experienced curators (Zasha Colah, Jau-Lan Guo, Maayan Sheleff, Henk Slager and Angela Vettese). The dense programme was complemented by participatory and performative activities derived from scores of Small Projects for Coming Communities.
