"curatorial research center" Discussed on Museum Archipelago

"Ninety episodes of this show. Curated doesn't just exist in the museum. Wild and i think far too many people in museums think that being curator is somehow a special feature of museums but no other field but that is just not true. The way i describe curation is very very simple for me. A good curator is part knowledge creator and park communicator. So the philosophy of the curatorial research center is very much to promote this fifty percents model as we call it idea curator that you should be as interested in communicating knowledge stories ideas about people about material culture and of course the connections between them as you are in the research in the generating of knowledge and also to recognize that not all knowledge. Not will research comes from a western idea of academic research. That's very important to me in my practice. But i would set in the also recognize expertise. Coming from lived experiences. Coming from curatorial couches is i would recognize them in other parts of the world and certainly from other cultures past as well so for me. It's very simple. I boil it down to a curator is fifty percents knowledge generator only creator and fifty percent communicator and wrapped around that kind of equation is the very heart of the weds to curate to care for so there must be some element of intention and meaning and caring for what you accumulating in order to authentically curate. Whatever it is you feel you want to curate. Cosker founded the curatorial research center in two thousand eighteen and a few months later brought archaeologist an audio visual specialist. Tom goss aboard who also happens to be her husband. The center aims to work in partnership with museums. Not just in a transactional manner. Research is the core of the centers will work at every opportunity. Research answers the questions. Why are things done like this. And what should we be doing instead. So why curatorial research. What on earth is curatorial research. It is critically engaging with the act of curation wherever that happen. The study of the phenomenon of bit like museology is the study specifically of museums. Curatorial research is. I would say taking a much more proactive stance towards constantly critically engaging with what curation and being curator is all about and what might be all about so from my standpoint. I am an action research. I am a critical thinker. And i'm interested in systems so that means that i'm always analyzing always lining out the evidence to take a really good look at it but that's exhibition making all collections research. Or that. I might be now. Currently focused on. So that might be divested and decolonization. It might be more about the change in technical skills curator needs or it might be as my current professional. Life is dominated by training. Others in had to be a curator. Put simply these curatorial values and philosophies are on display in gos- cars other project citizen. Curator's with the cornwall museums. Partnership citizen curator's is designed to support volunteers by building their confidence and competence. In key areas of curatorial work citizen curator's a bit like my creation of security research center was a long time in the making before it happened so i was beginning to sink that the idea of volunteer. Reliant volunteer run museums needed some kind of channel into what i would call. The mainstream professional museum weld. And i felt that there was a lack of opportunity there that i felt that a program. Like citizen curator's code fill there. Were these really fascinating. Big ideas like inclusion. Like decolonization of late. That when not touching this more museum well the idea came for citizen curator's which put simply is pitched as a work based curatorial training and museum awareness course aimed specifically volunteers from our communities and parts of it was to sort of break down barriers between volunteers and collections. And asking you questions of them through my support. They had permission to for example browse the stalls bras the object databases come to their own conclusions. Go outside the museum. Talk to people about the kinds of things that they were coming up against to also bring their own talents and hoagies and ideas to the process. There's a similarity between holding the permission space for citizen curator's and holding the discussion space for museum. Our for goss car. Both projects feedback into her work at the curatorial research center. I've always been a practitioner in the kind of museum heritage culture arts welds. That is what some people. And i would describe as i bring my whole self to the table. So i don't compartmentalize the voluntary activities. I do for example running museum. Our and the professional activities. I do to anna living so as a career curators curators in all sorts of different contexts not just exhibitions but bang engaged in collections research critically engaging in the systems that museums use and take for granted trying to understand the whole phenomenon of museums. I would say that my experience of museum. Iowa has quite heavily shaped how i say. Other people's views of museums other ideas and other thoughts about what museums can and should be. It's also help me formulate and to check my own understanding and also my own my own prejudices and biases about museums. And you know. I think a good museum isn't what someone else thinks. A good museum is in. That's okay you can find to me. Gosper at curatorial research.

"Welcome to museum archipelago. I'm ian elsner. Museum archipelago guides you through the rocky landscape of museums. Each episode is never longer than fifteen minutes. So let's get started for the past six and a half years more or less weekly museum. People gather on twitter for something called museum our together. These people form a peer to peer community supporting discussion and debate between those who work in enjoy and challenge museums society. That's the beauty of museum. Our is entirely independent. It is not an organization is just about holding a space so other people can talk with each other. This is dr to meena car who co-founded museum our back in october. Twenty fourteen gosper also founded the curatorial research center. Hello my name is to mean a costco. And i am the director and curator of the curatorial research center and that's an organization. I started back in two thousand eighteen very much to support fellow curator's from around the world and also to make progress in modernizing curatorial practice this month gosper officially steps back from her role in museum. Our i wanted this to serve as both exit interview and a chance to highlight other projects that she has founded based on her curatorial. Philosophies museum i started can october two thousand fourteen sophie balancer. Who was the co founder with me got together over twitter. We've never met in real life. Goodness knows whether we ever will. Sophie was based up in the north of england. I'm based in the far west of cornwall. That we both decided we'd give the idea of the discussion based hours that were kind of finding their feet on twitter at that time so we decided to give it a go and it's grown and grown and grown and changed a lot since then of course twitches also changed hugely in terms of who participates. Who feels confident about speaking out. Who likes in the background. There is a lot of polarization on the platform. Now and so we've changed adapted museum iowa to all of those trends that we've seen happen including it's growing politicize ation as well. If i'm being honest i've kind of treated the whole thing. Even six and a half years own as an ongoing experiment in trying to understand how it is people like to communicate with each other and how it is that you can provide some kind of support for this peer to pay contact is what we're really after on museum archipelago. We look at museums as a medium and twitter is also a medium one that has changed since museum. Our started six and a half years ago since then. Twitter has shifted from a simple subscriber model. One we you see all the tweets from the people you follow the order that they tweeted to a system that uses algorithms that optimize for other factors such as engagement with the tweets. This can make a global conversation about museums. Difficult with the change in. How twitter is managed. And how the concept of driving engagement and algorithms are dictating. What we see on our timelines. There has absolutely been an impact on museum our because of that. We've got to work much harder to try and get ideas for topics for example people's ideas out to as broad an interested audience participation group that we can and that has proven very difficult in fact particularly of late because people's timelines also manipulated by twitter's algorithms and because they're so much more noise on twitter than there was so. I'm kind of glad that museum. Our has managed to hold its own. It retains a light structure. It does support those intimate conversations as well as supporting bigger thoughts and opinions and even ones that people disagree about in one space. I've participated in even hosted a few museum hours. And the thing that reminds me of the most is a museum conference or at least the conversations that you might have at museum conference which is yet another medium but interestingly docker says that museum our has never been about recreating that experience. That certainly isn't the kind of experience you usually get unless you Fortunate enough to be able to afford to go to very expensive. Large international museum conferences. For example like the newseum association conference in the uk or any of items conferences but we've never really perceived if museum hours to fill that kind of gap with still kind of exploring what it is that we think we're doing and that's just by way of being very honest about no having an agenda and letting sort of the emergent process of museum our happened museum. our is just one of the volunteer projects. Goss car works on. She is first and foremost a curator term. I still ask for the definition of.
