A few years ago, EUNIC Moscow developed an internship programme to support the professional development of young Russian curators.
The cluster has been working with leading partner institutions both in Europe and Russia and it is continuously identifying new partners interested in offering Russian curators the possibility to undertake an internship. EUNIC Moscow will use the Cluster Fund grant to sponsor four-five new internships providing an opportunity for a two-way learning process for young Russians to both experience European culture, practices and exchange ideas as well as bring their own experiences curators based in Russia. During their internship,curators also develop their own concept for an independent curatorial project, which is to be presented at the final event held in Moscow in October orNovember. The best project will be selected by a jury of experts from the partner institutions and financed with the support from EUNIC Moscow. Previous partners include Centre Pompidou Metz, Nantes Museum of Fine Arts, Palais de Tokyo in France; Kalmar Konstmuseum, Fargfabriken, Tensta Konsthall in Sweden; Turner Contemporary, Liverpool Biennal, Modern Art Oxford, Artangel, Science Museum in the United Kingdom; Haus der Kunst, Neuer Berliner Kunstverein, Kunstverein in Hamburg in Germany; Das Weisse Haus, Die Springerin and Tranzit, Ars Electronica in Austria.
