MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) on Chinese Contemporary Art by ZHdK

Wednesday, 13.04.2016 – Wednesday, 13.04.2016

How can art be understood as a tool for understanding foreign cultures? Why do cultural values play an important role in threshold countries undergoing modernisation? What can art contribute to a country’s public image? Based on a case study about global culture, the «Chinese Contemporary Art Award» online course develops possible answers to these crucial questions.

Administered by the ZHdK Further Education Centre, the course is based on research undertaken at the Institute for Contemporary Art Research (IFCAR). Its presenters are Michael Schindhelm, Elisabeth Danuser and Renato Soldenhoff. It is offered in association with Connecting Spaces Hong Kong – Zürich, ZHdK’s Hong Kong hub.
