Open Call



We are very pleased to offer five international Shared Campus online summer schools this year. Participants have the opportunity to gain experience in practical artistic and creative collaboration with colleagues from different arts disciplines and cultural backgrounds (e.g. Kyoto, Hong Kong, Taipei, Singapore, London, and Zurich). An international team of lecturers will accompany the participants in their explorations.

Especially in times like these, we are convinced that international exchange and cross-cultural cooperation is more important than ever. By no means should our thinking and actions stop at national borders!

Short Description Shared Campus Summer Schools 2021

Arts & Crafts Matters in a Digital Society!
21 June – 9 July 2021, online
The Summer School examines arts and crafts and its relation to digitalisation and its effects on social conditions and changes. It also explores how the creation, production and reception of objects interacts with social structures.

Art of the Gap
5 – 19 July 2021, online
Art of the Gap contends with the complexities of the transformation of space, from physical to digital, to foster artistic practices able to engage with the inbetweenness and hybridity of cultures, so as to contemplate our recent past and near future.

Hacking Global Pop Icons
5 – 23 July 2021, online
“Hacking Global Pop Icons” is a practice-based Summer School dedicated to exploring the relationship between global pop cultures and local identities, and to examining the political, social and historical dimensions of (mass) production and reception. A global pop icon will serve as a common starting point for cultural analysis and for the transdisciplinary production of new artworks.

9 – 27 August 2021, online
How has being outdoors changed since the pandemic? What narratives unravel off-screen while walking the streets? “Streets” invites students and researchers across all disciplines to explore new ways of being in public spaces — sensorially, thematically and within larger social contexts.

Teleprovisation. Let’s do it!
11 – 21 August 2021, Kyoto/Singapore/Zurich
We are living in extraordinary times. So, let’s improvise! The Summer Academy brings together students from theatre, music and other disciplines using improvisation. Improvisation is understood here primarily as a way of life, based on agility, adaptiveness and attunement to different contexts. Three locations (Kyoto, Singapore and Zurich) will be connected via the internet to foster playful real-time interaction and exchange.
