A new joint exhibition, themed Care, repair and maintenance, between Architecture Museum and Design Museum is opening in spring 2024.

The museums are now looking to add three curatiorial submissions to the upcoming exhibition. Texts, series of videos, participatory works, research based on the museums’ respective collections, documentation, performances and other ensembles act as examples of viable submissions. The submissions’ theme can revolve around repair, cleaning, wear and tear, darning or examining museums as a place of care. 

An applicant can have a background in research, arts, activism, curating, design, or architecture. Collectives and working groups are welcomed to apply as well. An applicant doesn’t need to have previous experience of creating exhibitions. Selected experts receive curatorial and productional support from the museum based on their needs. Submissions that bring new or forgotten perspectives to examining architecture and design will be emphasised in the selection process.

The call is open until 21 May. Read more and see the application instructions through this link.
