Call for applications – CAS/MAS in curating 2017, ZHdK, Zurich, Switzerland

All application materials must be received by June 30, 2017.

Zurich University of the Arts is amongst the largest art schools in Europe. While firmly anchored in greater Zurich, our influence extends well beyond Switzerland to the wider international stage. Zurich as the cultural centre for art in Switzerland provides a unique and vibrant cultural scene at the heart of Europe.

The Postgraduate Programme in Curating is conceived of as a discursive platform which imparts key areas of contemporary exhibition-making by way of praxis-oriented project ­work. With instruction modules, group activities, seminars and lectures held by an international selection of guest lecturers, from various fields.

The CAS/MAS in Curating is an international, English speaking, postgraduate part time programme founded in 2005, our alumni are working worldwide (see www.curating.org/alum) (www.curating.org/alum/) The programme focuses less on the ‘genius concept’ of the exhibition planner as individual author – a highly controversial topic since the 1990s – than on cooperative, interdisciplinary working methods, as employed, for example, in film productions or non-government organizations. Exhibition-making / curating means the creation of innovative structures for the presentation of cultural artefacts through interdisciplinary collaboration. In this field art, digital media, design, and architecture intermesh in new ways.
