The OnCurating Academy Berlin provides postgraduate and continuing education in an environment for critical curatorial thinking and new perspectives and formats of curatorial practices. Based on our activities as the OnCurating platform, we offer an opportunity to deepen and share knowledge and to grow together into a lively community of aspiring curators, artists and art administrators. The programme focuses on cooperative, interdisciplinary working methods, as employed, for example, in film productions or non-government organisations. Exhibition-making/curating means the creation of innovative structures for the presentation of cultural artefacts through interdisciplinary collaboration. In this field, art, digital media, design and architecture inter­mesh in new ways.

In terms of content, our topics and projects are closely related to the knowledge that is discussed on the OnCurating platform: the ever-evolving topics revolve around collective forms of curating, based on situated knowledges, on decolonising art institutions and on digital media and curating diversity, queer curating and curating through a feminist perspective, as well as urban and environmental developments reflected by curatorial practice and theory.  Therefore, the programme has been developed in the context of cultural analysis, theories of power, theories of communities based on feminist, queer, postcolonial, ecological, post-Marxist and other political and emancipatory positions.
