/ecm is a two-year postgraduate university course that imparts core competencies in the expanded museum and exhibition sector. The goal of this part-time course is to provide an academic foundation and professional credentials for working with art and culture: engagement with relevant theories forms the basis for the development of skills for conceiving, visualizing and mediating projects at institutions and in the independent scene. The course is transdisciplinary and focuses on the development, exhibition, and communication of knowledge in the fields of art and cultural history, contemporary art, technology, nature and science. A group project combines theory and practice, opening an experimental field for “applied exhibiting” in collaborative processes of curatorial research. Through its comprehensive orientation, this postgraduate course provides participants with the tools they need to perform a range of demanding jobs in the cultural sector.
