Item description for ZHdK-A Future for the Arts: Zurich University of the Arts Inaugural Publication by Hans-Peter Schwarz...
What does the actor Bruno Ganz have in common with photographer Olaf Breuning, or film director Andrea Staka with dancer Kusha Alexi? Along with designer Adrian Frutiger and musician Anne-Sophie Mutter, they all studied atZurich's legendary art schools. In August 2007, these institutions, which were previously separated by discipline, merged to form one of Europe's most multifaceted and significant art education centers, Zurich University of the Arts. To mark its founding, ZHdK---A Future for the Arts recounts the history of the previous schools, examines the importance of their well-known alumni, and sets forth ambitious goals for the newly formed institution. Richly illustrated and accompanied by companion CD and DVD in PAL format, this volume traces the history of Swiss art education and features perspectives that span the entire curriculum. ZHdK---A Future for the Arts is not just a portrait of a single university, but a rendering of Swiss cultural history of the past fifty years.
