The TRANScuratorial Academy (TCA) is an initiative of KfW Stiftung with the aim of advancing international knowledge transfer, networking and the development of the transcultural and transdisciplinary curatorial discourse. Directed by Beatrice von Bismarck and Benjamin Meyer-Krahmer, the TCA brings together emerging curators in a mobile format, focusing on key issues which gained urgency within contemporary curatorial practice under the conditions of globalisation. The academy is structured in three chapters (Berlin, Mumbai, Phnom Penh), each of which is centered on a keyword in a five-day program.

“Entangled Histories” is the keyword of the TCA Berlin. On May 16 Shalini Randeria, Professor of Social Anthropology and Sociology at the Graduate Institute Geneva and Rector of the Institute of Human Sciences (IWM), Vienna, will give a keynote lecture. On May 15 the TCA starts with presentations by the participating curators.
