EUNIC Cluster Russia
We are pleased to inform you that the selection of curators for the EUNIC internship programme is completed. This year, six young Russian curators will be trained in prestigious cultural institutions in Europe: Das Weisse Haus (Austria) - Snezhana Vinogradova, Сentre Pompidou-Metz (France) - Alice Bogoyavlenskaya, The Nantes Museum of Fine Arts (France) - Daria Tkacheva, Färgfabriken (Sweden) - Sophia Gimon, Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfallen (Germany) - Maria Weitz, and Artangel (Great Britain) - Anna Bitkina. During the programme, the curators will work on the theme "Changing the City". At the end of the programme, the curators will present their projects and the implementation of the best project will be financed by EUNIC.
The programme is created by the members of the EUNIC-cluster in Moscow – the Austrian Cultural Forum, the British Council, the Goethe-Institut, the Embassy of Sweden and Moscow French Institute. (For the Russian version see below)
The aim of the programme is to help young Russian curators acquire experience while working in leading European cultural institutions. The applicants will be given a chance to undertake internships in one of five countries, to see how the leading galleries and museums work, to collaborate with local curators and to develop their own independent curatorial projects.

EUNIC in Russia is delighted to announce two events dedicated to the EUNIC curatorial exchange project.

A young generation of Russian curators, not only from Moscow but also from numerous ambitious cultural centres in Russian regions, is working today partly freelance and partly as curators for young talents in institutions. These young people will decisively shape exhibitions and cultural life in the future; they will quickly manage to modernize and develop exhibition centres, biennales and institutions and aim to collect experience in other countries for their own work.

Intradance was a festival of superlatives and the largest EUNIC project in a single country up to now. Over 100 European choreographers from 18 countries and more than 30 Russian dance companies joined the Intradance dance project in 2009. They made seven co-productions and have swept up Moscow in dance from 20 May to 23 May.
