PRACTICUM for Students
Students thematic guided tours through the permanent display
In cooperation with the Centre for Career Development of the Faculty of Philosophy – Belgrade University, the Museum of African Art organises an annual programme for final year students of the Faculty of Philosophy (students from all departments are eligible to apply).
The practical curatorial course was conceived by Ivana Vojt and Emilia Epštajn (MAA curators, art historians and anthropologists, respectively) in the hopes of offering future young professionals the possibility of learning about the skills, techniques and knowledge required by the curator’s profession.
One of the distinctive traits this programme has to offer is motivating the students to create each their own tailored, thematic tour of the permanent display and the means to do so, which include thorough theoretical scrutiny as well as placing emphasis on the process of conducting a presentation and public speaking.
The learning and training course starts annually in the month of March and is finished by May, and this is followed by students guiding tours in the MAA until the end of the (programme) year.
