Led by a visiting faculty that is comprised of practitioners from the field of architecture, curating and exhibition making as well as theorists and artists the participants will be able to develop or further deepen the following knowledge and skills:


– You will get to know diverse curatorial methods and approaches to exhibition making.

– You will experiment with the different media and displays strategies crucial for the presentation of architecture.

– You will develop and practice skills crucial to exhibition making: critical evaluation of research, leading discussions and conversations, conducting interviews, writing proposals and reviews.

– You will meet and discuss with agents from the fields of art and architecture.

– You will be able to discuss and present your own curatorial interests and research to the group and invited experts.


The development of the individual works will be closely guided by the programme head, tutors, and the visiting faculty.
