The Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden Curators' Academy will take place from the 19th – 26th of August 2017.
In 2010, the Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden established a specialized and intensive study course, today known as the Curators' Academy - The Dresden State Art Collections' Summer School for Curatorial Studies. The course addresses both senior and junior museum professionals, as well as those seeking to get to know the magnificent Dresden collections from behind the scenes, to explore topics relevant to contemporary international museum and exhibition practice, and to share ideas with colleagues from all over the world. By mutual exchange of knowledge, notions and visions the Curators’ Academy seeks to foster the fascinating and at times difficult work of museums and similar institutions today.
This intensive 7-day study program offers the exiting opportunity to explore the rich Dresden collections, learn about major restoration projects, and study selected objects in depth. At the same time, participants will be able to learn about current developments in exhibition practice and discuss the challenges of contemporary museum work.
