01 June 2004
Tate Modern, London, United Kingdom

This conference investigates a range of positions currently occupied by curators in the context of digital media and immaterial production. It asks how curators respond to new forms of self-organising and self-replicating systems, databases, programming, net art, software art and generative media within the wider system of (im)material culture? What are the new models of curatorial practice that take into account the transformative nature of objects and processes and that are collaborative, shared and distributed?

The conference is organised by KURATOR in partnership with Tate Modern, Arts Council England, Mute, DATA browser, University of Plymouth and Danish Arts Council.

Following the conference, the book Curating Immateriality has been published (Autonomedia, New York, 2006).
