Zurich, Taipei,


Transcultural Collaboration (TC) is a unique international semester programme in the arts and design, and a cooperation between Shared Campus partner institutions in Asia and Europe.

25 participants from all arts and design disciplines have the chance to explore Zurich and Taipei, collaborating on experiments with open outcomes.

The programme is divided in three parts: a 4-week stay in Zurich, a 9-week stay in Taipei and a 2-week field trip within Taiwan or the region. The core programme is dedicated to practice-based collaboration and teamwork between the participants in changing constellations. An annual semester topic and a related lecture series serve to focus debates and provide a framework for practical experimentation. The programme is complemented with additional inputs by guests, excursions, and workshops. Participants receive close support from selected faculty from all partner institutions, as well as from independent artists and experts from various arts and design disciplines. The semester includes a public presentation in Taipei.

Curious, (self-) critical and adventurous students from all Shared Campus partner institutions are now invited to apply for the 8th edition of the programme.
