Postgraduate Program in Curating

Curating Contemporary Art, Zurich University of the Arts (ZHDK), Switzerland

The Postgraduate Program in Curating (MAS/ CAS) is a discursive platform designed to impart specialist knowledge of contemporary curating practices through practice-oriented projects. The programme examines the key issues involved in contemporary exhibition making through taught modules, group activities, and practical project work. Coursework explores different areas of knowledge, and involves the development and production of projects through lectures and workshops delivered by an international selection of artists, curators, theorists, architects and designers. The program focuses less on the concept of the exhibition planner as an individual author, which has been a highly controversial topic since the 1990s, and more on cooperative, interdisciplinary working methods.
