The TransCuratorial Academy (TCA) is an initiative of KfW Stiftung with the aim of advancing international knowledge transfer, networking and the development of the transcultural and transdisciplinary curatorial discourse. Directed by Beatrice von Bismarck and Benjamin Meyer-Krahmer, the TCA is a mobile format, focusing on key issues which gained urgency within contemporary curatorial practice under the conditions of globalisation. The TCA brings together emerging curators and internationally renowned experts to discuss on topics such as mediation, collectivity, governmentality and critique with respect to the curatorial. In addition the participants present selected projects to the public and exchange their experiences and research amongst each other. Encounters and discussions with protagonists of the local curatorial scene are a further important part of the TCA. The academy is structured in three chapters (Berlin, Mumbai, Phnom Penh), each of which is centered on a keyword in a five-day programme.
