Node Center Berlin announces its Curatorial Residency Program designed for emerging curators who wish to expand their professional practice in Berlin.
Node Center was created in order to offer a platform to teach, experiment, and investigate subjects related to curatorial studies and contemporary art practices.
The Center’s core activity stems from the 12-week long Curatorial Residency Program that offers its participants the possibility of expanding their work experience, with professional feedback and technical support, by developing projects in Berlin.
The program allows resident curators to develop specific theoretical-practical research during their residency, which will include a participation on a publication and the curation of a final show. The residency is reinforced with activities such as studio visits, workshops, seminars, meetings with art professionals and visits to exhibition spaces. Participants will also have an active role in organizing seminars, workshops and guest lectures.
Each year, Node focuses on a key topic that questions inherited curatorial practices and that invents new ways of creating knowledge by finding new possibilities in the exhibition process.
During February – May 2012, the line of research ‘The logic of the limit: transversal curatorial processes’ will be examined for the third and last time.
An online application form and additional information can be found on the Center’s website: /
The deadline for the February – May 2012 session is December 10th, 2011. *Shortlisted candidates will be contacted for an online interview.
An academic background in one of the following areas of contemporary art is required: curatorial studies, theory and philosophy of art, art history, art management, and/or art production; visual arts, fine arts, arts and new media; or equivalent work experience within an Institution, or with projects developed as an independent curator.

The Ark in association with Science Gallery’s summer exhibition HACK THE CITY
In celebration of Dublin City of Science 2012
Working Title: Awakening Curiosity’
‘Exploring nature, biodiversity and the world around us’
Call opens: Wednesday 16th November 2011
Call closes: Friday 6th January 2012
Decision notification: Tuesday 31st January 2012
Draft Exhibtion Dates: May – August 2012
[Schools programme: May – June / Public: June – August]
Audience: Children (aged : 2 – 12 years, school groups, families, teachers, artists, scientists, general public, international visitors)
The Ark welcomes submissions for both existing and new work from artists, designers, engineers, scientists and everyone in between, in any and all media.
We believe both art and science are fundamentally creative at the core. Crossover learning between science and the arts provides a kind of catalyst to innovation that sparks passion and freedom to pursue and realise challenging ideas.
We want to show how innovation is often catalyzed by those who cross a conventional line so firmly drawn between the arts and the sciences. So next May as part of Dublin City of Science 2012, The Ark will present a unique and exciting multi-disiplinary artscience exhibition designed to celebrate where science and art meet.
The theme we have chosen is AWAKENING CURIOSITY ‘Exploring nature, biodiversity and the world around us’. The Ark asks ‘what happens when we cross-pollinate the themes of nature and our environment, art and science? We believe creativity is inherent in science and we would like you to explore this crossover 3rd space, viewing the traditional art-science barriers as a zone of creativity we call artscience.
The potential in fusing art and science in a children’s exhibition excites us, and we urge you to consider our theme, the use of art and science, and the mediums of art, craft, film, design, dance, theatre, music, sound, light, experimentation and technology. We would also like submissions to preserve our core principles when preparing an exhibition for 2-12 year olds; sight, smell, touch, texture, colour, stimuli, shape, size, height, quirkiness, playfulness and always challenging.
The aim of the exhibition is to stimulate and awaken the curiosity of children, through rich, high quality inter- disciplinary experiences. We will work with renowned Irish and international practitioners to explore the connections between art and science within the theme of nature, biodiversity and the environment, to
Submitted written (hard or soft copy) submissions for inclusion in the exhibition will be evaluated on criteria including: relevance to the theme, artistic interest, science and/or technology interest, relevancy to the ages 2-12, potential to engage and enthuse a broad public, participant’s background, costs, and ability to deliver the exhibition piece. We encourage artist / scientist collaborations, artists with a science background or scientists with an art background, to investigate creatively what happens in this new space we call artscience!
We are also looking for digital submissions. If your idea is a web-based or mobile phone application, then we would like to hear all about it.
Each project needs to be delivered within a maximum budget of up to €5,000 if exceptional, sliding scales thereafter on projects, starting from €1,000. If your proposal costs more than €5,000 we will mark for consideration.
Deadline for applications is Friday 6th January 2012 at 12 noon.
