The Attic (a name which commemorates our first physical location) is, first and foremost, a site for the research students of the School of Museum Studies at the University of Leicester: a virtual community which aims to include all students, be they campus-based and full-time, or distance-learning and overseas. But we welcome contributions from students of museum studies - and allied subject areas - from outside the School and from around the world. Here you will find a lot of serious stuff, like exhibition and research seminar reviews, conference alerts and calls for papers, but there's also some 'fluff'; the things that inspire, distract and keep us going. After all, while we may be dead serious academic types, we're human too.

Performance at Tate Modern

Saw this on the Tate Modern website. Sounds mad but fun!

FrenchMottershead: Club Class
Saturday 7 October 2006, 14.00–18.00

Club Class is a performance experience created by FrenchMottershead (Rebecca French and Andrew Mottershead) that invites participants to explore the social rituals and museum etiquette of Tate Modern.

Participants choose from four micro-classes led by experts, which explore the possibilities of what might happen when behavioural attitudes are altered. Using bad behaviour, clothing, surveillance or body language to reassess the customs of a museum visit, the experience offers the opportunity to devise performances to be played out in various locations in Tate Modern.

Places are limited so applicants are asked to select a micro-class from the Curriculum and send a sentence explaining their interest in participating to sara.raza@tate.org.uk.
