Offered by the Postgraduate Programme in Curating, Continuing Education, ZHdK 
in affiliation with the online publication, and the PhD in Practice in Curating programme. Head of the programme: Prof. Dr. Dorothee Richter,

The Online Courses on Contemporary Curating provide in-depth insights into specific areas of knowledge in curating; they are aimed at all those in contact with cultural, curatorial, and artistic interventions wishing to intensify and expand their understanding of culture, its role in society, and its capacity for change. The courses are designed to foster a more comprehensive understanding of culture, art, and curating and to seek to expand the boundaries of art. All course lecturers are highly engaged and active in their respective fields. You can learn more about them in each course description.

We believe in a learning environment that empowers the participants. Besides the knowledgeable contributions by the lecturers, the courses will at certain points enable a workshop-like format that aims to be a space of encounter and open discussion, where direct engagement with the lecturer and other participants is possible and welcome.

Each online course is set on two Saturdays, 2–6pm CET. The courses are held live via Zoom and contain substantial input by the lecturers, workshop formats in groups and/or individually, discussions, and feedback and evaluation. Each Online Course is credited with one ECTS point, and a Certificate of Completion is conferred. The courses are conducted by the Center of Continuing Education at the Zurich University of the Arts.
