Freelance curator Mirjami Schuppert, in partnership with Void, is organising a workshop on Curatorial Ethics. The workshop aims to produce a working definition of ethics within the framework of contemporary curatorial practice. It aims to answer the question: What do we talk about when we talk about curatorial ethics?

Whilst in museology, different guidelines have been established (for example the Code of Ethics for Museums as defined by the Museums Association) to guarantee ethical conduct, in contemporary curatorial practice, which is about communication, dialogue, interaction, change, and creation, a normative approach would not seem to suffice. A more flexible approach to ethics is necessary. The expertise of the invited speakers ranges from the question of curatorial authorship, institutional practices, the curatorial, feminist curatorial practice and curating as a critical practice to ethics more widely.

More information will be available soon on and social media @derryvoid.
