Curatorial Lab

Sharing information, know-how, governance and infrastructure has become a new imperative in architectural and cultural discourse.

Sharing information, know-how, governance and infrastructure has become a new imperative in architectural and cultural discourse. Europe is facing challenges that stem from the scarcity of resources, low levels of public participation and a shortfall of appropriate expertise. The shift in the technological advances of our time, boosted by the complex and interconnected condition of the globalized world redefines the way we inhabit our cities. Sharing makes innovative solutions possible by utilizing the creative potential of citizens, communities, activists, artists, cultural actors, social scientists and their networks, supported by the opportunities provided by ubiquitous mobile computing and social media. This approach activates a “Creative Momentum” that increases the quality of life in European cities.

The Curatorial Lab is a transnational process-based collaborative platform exploring recent innovative curatorial approaches with artistic, visual, and performative strategies. The lab is enhancing the visibility of the project outcomes and strengthening the mediation and the message of the Shared Cities theme. It is a communication channel for more intense curation, transnational exchange and dialogue with project partners. On a metalevel it coordinates program activities, carefully looking at the message, content and quality.
