Inspired by an interview with the philosopher Michel Foucault published in Vanity Fair in 1983, entitled How We Behave, curator Grant Watson’s long-term project focuses on the central question that Foucault posed in this interview – why can’t life be ‘the material for a work of art’? The workshop will involve participant presentations, group discussion and close viewing of film material.

There are 10 free places available on this workshop, which is aimed at early career and freelance curators. will require a small amount of preparation in advance and participants should be ready for active participation. Numbers are limited and we hope to ensure that participants from across the country, and with wide range of backgrounds, have a chance to take part. To request a place please email [email protected] with a CV and a short note of no more than 100 words telling us why you would like to take part. The deadline is 12pm on May 17. We are sorry that we may not be able to meet all the requests for a place.
