Curating. In my view, curating means many things. On the one hand, it means grouping things that -if it weren’t for the curator- would have never been put together (of course, curating can mean putting things that were always together, together too, but this is one of the aspects of curating that I find more interesting: the possibility of thinking about new connections). On the other hand, it means reflecting about the history of the artwork, the history of the artists, the history artistic event in general, it connections, dialogues, etc. At the same time contemporary curating has opened new possibilities regarding participation between artists and curators. Somehow, curators become a part of the creative process. You always create something when curating, you create a story, and you communicate.
