Postgraduate Programme in Curating CAS / MAS
Offered by Centre for Continuing Education. The international, english speaking programme at the ZHdK.
–Distance learning opportunity
–MAS with 90 ECTS
–Possibility to advance to the PhD Programme in Practice in Curating

In cooperation with the publication platform, and PhD in Practice in Curating, Practice-Based Doctoral Programme, University of Reading in cooperation with ZHdK.

The Postgraduate Programme in Curating (CAS / MAS Curating) is an international, English speaking, postgraduate part-time programme founded in 2005. It is conceived of as a discursive platform which imparts key areas of contemporary exhibition-making, knowledge production and curating by praxis-oriented project work. We understand curating as an activity and as an agency, as an interdisciplinary work process.

Critical reading, discussing and an excessive network. Our alumni are working worldwide. Since 2017 we offer distance learning opportunities. With instruction modules, group activities, seminars and lectures held by an international selection of guest lecturers, various fields.

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 / knowledge production / curating means the creation of innovative structures for the presentation of cultural artefacts, discourse and knowledge through interdisciplinary collaboration. In this field art, digital media, design, and architecture intermesh in new ways. More information.
