MAS Curating | ZHdK

The MAS in Curating is a discursive platform focusing on key areas of contemporary exhibition-making and curating. It has a strong practical orientation – combined with reading and discussing critical theory.


Taught modules, group activities, seminars, excursions and lectures delivered by a team of acclaimed international guest lecturers serve to build essential knowledge and skills in the field of curating. Coursework also involves research and the development of individual and group projects from start to finish.
