How can we think of culture as a tool for understanding foreign societies?
Why do emerging countries consider cultural values as instrumental in their quest for modernization?
How can art contribute to a country’s public image?

These are central questions in an increasingly globalized world. Through a case study on global culture, this online course on the first ever award for contemporary art in China aims to address these questions and to find some possible answers.

While working through six chapters, you will receive exclusive reading material, supplementary videos and background information about the developments in the Chinese art scene, the Chinese Contemporary Art Award and the Sigg Collection as part of the newly created M+ museum in Hong Kong.

Moreover, you will gain insights into Chinese contemporary art, first-hand information about the cultural scene, and a wide range of contacts with relevant local and international institutions and actors.

The course is produced by the Continuing Education Centre at the Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK), based on research by IFCAR and presented by Michael Schindhelm.
