A group of Korean curators are visiting the Netherlands by invitation of the Korean organization Project Via (part of KAMS). Following the example of the Mondriaan Fund, Project VIA has begun organizing orientation trips and a Visitors program. This year their orientation trip takes them to Denmark and the Netherlands. Project VIA has selected a group of 5 young Korean curators to take part in the trip. The Mondriaan Fund has been asked to facilitate the program.
In September a group of curators from the Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland and Denmark will visit Korea and Japan. The Open-call for this can be found on the website of the Mondriaan Fund.
