  Curating Degree Zero      
         
 

An exploration of critical and experimental approaches to curating contemporary art


Curating Degree Zero was launched to research, present and discuss changes in the practice of freelance curators, artist-curators, new-media curators and curatorial collaborations. Beginning in 1998 with a three-day symposium and an ensuing publication, the project went on to build an expanding archive about these practices. Between 2003 and 2008 the archive toured to 17 venues, where it was displayed, used and accompanied by a programme of live events and discussions.

This web site documents the activities of Curating Degree Zero and provides an overview and full bibliography of the archive's contents, a description of its tour, and a full list of participants.
