Ruth Noack, trained as artist and art historian, is an enthusiastic teacher. Since the 1990s she has worked as art critic, university lecturer and exhibition maker, in 2007 she was curator of documenta 12. The "migration of forms", and the question of “cultural education” two of Noack’s pivotal interests were already important at that time. For Ruth Noack an exhibition is not a singular event, but a medium, a process, in which many people are involved, not only artists and curators.
Her course in Salzburg will investigate the “non-transmittable” form and its potential to resist in times of a globalized art world. What sounds quite abstract here will be grounded and become tangible by her distinguished curatorial experience and concrete examples. Individually or in teams, participants will develop exhibition concepts, going through the steps of discussion, research, proposal and implementation. They will not necessarily end up with an actual exhibition, but learn about “thinking with works of art”.
