The opening event of the four-day convention on Curating Contemporary Music, Defragmentation, will examine the state of curatorial practices in different artistic disciplines, represented by four guests: Dorothee Richter, Head of the Postgraduate Programme in Curating at the University of the Arts Zurich, Professor in Contemporary Curating at the University Of Reading, as well as Publisher of OnCurating.org; Corinne Diserens, art historian and curator of, amongst many other international projects, the Taipeh Biennal 2016; the independent performing arts curator, dramaturge and writer Florian Malzacher; and Stefan Heidenreich, author, art and media scientist and currently lecturer for Art Theory at the University of Cologne. With their four ways of reflecting, teaching and curating in the fields of fine arts, theater and performance they will also discuss, together with Lars Petter Hagen and Berno Odo Polzer, about the adaption of the term “curating”, which is influential and inflationary alike, to music.
