ZHdK Zurich

The Zürcher Hochschule der Künste (ZHdK), with around 2500 students one of Europe’s biggest art academies, was founded in Zurich in 2007. It offers study programmes in the areas of design, film art, media, music, dance, theatre and teaching of arts. In the context of its focal research theme PUBLIC CITY, ZHdK concentrates on the topics of city and the public, urbanity and public spaces. PUBLIC CITY is dedicated to joining researchers of the ZHdK and other national and international research facilities who examine different aspects of urban transformation processes, thus bringing different artistic, scientific and theoretic approaches into dialogue.
