Organized by independent cultural organization BLOCKFREI, the fifth edition of Curators' Agenda: VIENNA 2019 (C'A)
is taking place for six weeks in Vienna in September and October 2019. C'A
is an annual, unique, know-how program for international, emerging curators who are interested in exploring Vienna's contemporary art scene and deepening their practical knowledge on production and realization of exhibitions.
The program includes both practical and theoretical segments. Practical program includes visits to artists' studios, museums, off-spaces, art collections, meetings with both institutional and freelance curators, specially designed guided tours through exhibitions in various museums and galleries as well as visiting current programs, which are taking place at that moment (Viennacontemporary, Parallel, Vienna Biennial, curated by). Furthermore, the participants are also being introduced to different artist-in-residence programs such as KulturKontakt, quartier 21 and das weisse haus, having the chance to get to know the visiting artists.
Besides an intensive schedule, where new contacts are being made, the participants are also having weekly theoretical workshops as well as workshop on a project management in order to help them with the final part of their residency, a co-curation of a mutual group exhibition realized in partnership with the University of Applied Arts Vienna. By reflecting on the lessons learned and by drawing upon their own experiences and competencies, participants are given a task to develop their own, personal approach to the Viennese contemporary art scene, create a concept and execute a mutual group exhibition.
