Teaching & Learning

Teaching at the HZK is understood as interdisciplinary support for young academics from the BA to the post-doc phase. In the Gerlachbau and Tierantomisches Theater (TA T), the establishment of an object laboratory will create a unique infrastructure for research-based teaching, enabling training on the object and with concrete materials. This will benefit both the interdisciplinary study programme Diversity of Knowledge, in which BA and MA students of natural sciences and humanities will learn cultural techniques and the history of knowledge in practice using concrete objects, and the interdisciplinary international Master’s programme Open Design in cooperation with the Universidad de Buenos Aires.

The W3 professorship “Theory and Practice of Curation” (endowed professorship of the Stiftung Humboldt Forum) is planned for the summer semester 2021. The professorship will research and teach on the development of methods and their application in the field of museology.
