Curators' Academy - The Dresden State Art Collections' Summer School for Curatorial Studies

STUDY PROGRAMME 2017 (19th August – 26th August) 

The Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden (Dresden State Art Collections) is one of the world’s oldest and most renowned museum institutions. Its origins go back to the 16th century, to the Kunstkammer and other collections of the Saxon electors. Over time these early collections developed into a magnificent and broad assembly of outstanding objects. Today the Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden comprises 14 museums together holding more than two million objects.

In 2010, the Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden established a specialized and intensive study course, today known as the Curators' Academy - The Dresden State Art Collections' Summer School for Curatorial Studies. The course addresses both senior and junior museum professionals, as well as those seeking to get to know the magnificent Dresden collections from behind the scenes, to explore topics relevant to contemporary international museum and exhibition practice, and to share ideas with colleagues from all over the world. By mutual exchange of knowledge, notions and visions the Curators’ Academy seeks to foster the fascinating and at times difficult work of museums and similar institutions today.
