The Friends of Education Internship, Department of Film
This internship is supported by MoMA‘s Friends of Education, a Museum affiliate group dedicated to supporting African American and African diaspora artists and audience development at the Museum. The intern participates in the entire spectrum of curatorial activities that the Department of Film engages in, from exhibition planning and execution to working with the Celeste Bartos Film Preservation Center.
Focus: The internship focuses on three exhibitions in particular: the exhibition and accompanying publication for The Berlin School, which explores the new and aesthetically driven form of German political cinema; the ongoing MoMA partnership with the Berlin Film Festival; and Vienna Unveiled, a major collaborative exhibition that explores Vienna throughout the history of cinema as a city both real and mythic. In addition, the intern assists various curatorial and administrative staff of the department in all aspects of film operations.
Requirements: The ideal candidate will have a liberal arts academic background and a general knowledge of film and film culture. Fluency in German is preferred. Any previous experience working in a museum is helpful, but is not essential
