The Programme is designed for emerging curators and students who expect to work in the field of contemporary art. It intends to introduce participants to current and relevant practices as well as to the mechanisms of curating in relation to exhibitions, institutions, audiences, aesthetics and cultural political discourse.

By sharing the experiential and theoretical Best Practices of the leading contemporary art museums, galleries, the program offers participants a unique chance to develop project ideas, conduct research of their particular interests, enrich connections and networks internationally as well as elaborate discussions with contemporary art professionals of Budapest. The residency aims to conclude with the conception of a publication, the curation of an exhibition or the presentation of a lecture in the form of a case study.
