The Curatorial: A Philosophy of Curating (ed. Jean-Paul Martinon, Bloomsbury 2013) is an outcome of the PhD program Curatorial/Knowledge at Goldsmiths, University of London. It introduces the notion of ‘the curatorial’ (as distinct from ‘curating’ as a set of professional practices) and explores this notion as an event of knowledge which encourages other ways of thinking and sensing the world irreducible to the stage of the exhibition. The book includes contributions by tutors, participants and guests speakers of Curatorial/Knowledge and will be presented by the head of the program as well as its first two PhD graduates.
