The New Curator
Text in Englisch
With the expansion of the internet everything is now curated and everyone is a curator – curated playlists, curated outfits, curated menus, curated digital content… Once reserved for the arts, it became fashionable for bloggers, stylists, agencies, store owners to give themselves this lofty title. Through overuse and misuse its meaning became somewhat hazy and it seems that any activity that involves compiling and selecting can cary the caption “curated”.
It gets harder than ever to understand what it is a curator actually does. This book gives an insight into the practice of contemporary curating (in the arts of course) through interviews with different curators.
