The postwar ascent of the curator as both cultural broker and creative participant in the work of art has seen the discipline acquire a brief but rich history of its own, peopled with names that already seem the stuff of legend (Johannes Cladders, Pontus Hulten, Harald Szeemann). "Raising Frankenstein: Curatorial Education and Its Discontents" unites curatorial studies with the increasingly debated subject of "the educational turn." Edited by Kitty Scott, whose own career as a curator of contemporary art has taken her from the National Gallery in Ottawa to the Serpentine Gallery in London and the Banff Centre in Alberta, it presents a collection of essays that explores the education and formation of curators. Writings on curatorial pedagogy by Barbara Fischer, Teresa Gleadowe, Francesco Manacorda, Cuauhtemoc Medina and Lourdes Morales offer an overview of recent thought on curatorial pedagogy, elucidating, defining and building on current debates surrounding this subject.show more
