The concrete content of the internship is dependent on the nature, goal
and programme of the museum or institution and the department where the
student is placed. In consultation with the internship supervisor
(programme coordinator) and the institutional supervisor (curator)
assigned to the student a plan will be devised for the content of the
internship, which will subsequently be monitored at least every three
months. In each museum or institution the following aspects pertinent to
the tasks of a curator will be addressed: organization and policy;
research, archival work, registration of collections (relevant database
systems) and making available of research results; art handling
(procedures around the placement of objects in and outside the museum or
institution); restoration and conservation; representation and
communication; and production (exhibition, symposium or program, other
kinds of displays or presentations). Halfway the programme an evaluation
meeting will be held, and the student completes the internship with an
internship and competence report.
