As the opening of the 2017 Summer Academy is coming closer, we would like to present our event’s programme and tell you about the lecturers of the Global Academy series.

The project began in 2016 with the Global Academy conference and continues this year with five lectures; four of which deal with diverse art scenes on the vast continent of Asia, all having attracted increasing interest over recent years. Ghalya Saadawi talks about the scene in Lebanon, highly acclaimed since the 2000s, Virginia Whiles about Pakistan, Diana Campbell Betancourt about Bangladesch and Grace Samboh about Indonesia.

In addition, Ruth Noack, one of the leading representatives of a universal curatorial approach, will talk about “global curating” in her lecture A museum in a school.


Studies show, that despite innovative educational programmes and contemporary approaches, little has changed in terms of equal access to the pleasure and knowledge contained in museums. Why not take the museum into the school? Ruth Noack is asking. The lecture will look at practice-based research in this field, which takes its inspiration from a few examples of non-Western museum practice.

The lecture will take place on 19 July 2017 at 7 p.m. at Galerie 5020, Salzburg.
