The Wende Museum of the Cold War

Culver City

Curatorial Internship »

Working closely with the Chief Curator and the Associate Curator, the curatorial intern will assist in the preparation of the exhibition Cold War Space that will open in the Wende Museum’s newly renovated public facility in October 2017, as well as conduct research on another upcoming exhibition, to be determined based on the successful candidates’ skills and interests.  About Cold War Space: Political power relations, economic structures, and cultural ideas impact the way we experience, envision, and structure our environment. The Cold War, with its strict division between ‘East’ and ‘West’ both in physical and ideological terms, is a case in point. This exhibition explores the spatial characteristics of Cold-War-era Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union in ten sections: public space; private space; border space; secret space; projected space; ideological space; alternative space; outer space; shared space; and changing space. It tries to capture some of the unique traits of divided Europe between the end of World War II and the fall of the Berlin Wall.

Candidates with an interest in experimental curatorial practices, cultural and political history, and art historical research are encouraged to apply.
