Explore the contemporary art and street art scene in Copenhagen and Europe as you learn about curating, art appreciation, and arts management. You gain first-hand insights into the art world as you meet artists in their studios, explore galleries, and learn directly from experienced curators in Copenhagen and Berlin. With your fellow students, you showcase your acquired skills in arts management and curating as you produce an art exhibition at DIS as your final assignment.

For the three-day travel component of this course we go to Berlin, home to one of the most exciting contemporary art scenes today. We visit artists in their studios as well as freelance curators working on upcoming exhibition projects in order to understand the mechanisms of exhibition production today. Examples of visits include Sammlung Boros, König Galerie, KW Institute for Contemporary Art, artists’ studios, and more.
