1. Introductory Session, Irit Rogoff

2. Legitimating Expenditure, Jean-Paul Martinon This first session explored two concepts together: the curatorial and research. It focused on two issues: First, the issue of legitimation (How to avoid legitimizing the curatorial as a field of research?), and the issue of parity between academic and curatorial research. The second part of this first session was dedicated to the reading of a text by Georges Bataille. Through this reading, research in the field of the curatorial became understood beyond all forms of production as a necessary form of non-productive expenditure.
