Garage’s minor program Contemporary Art: An Introduction to History and Museum and Exhibition Practices

In spring 2018, Garage launched the all-university minor program Contemporary Art: An Introduction to History and Museum and Exhibition Practices (an optional course for undergraduate students). With the third intake of students completing the program this year, it remains one of the university’s most popular minors, selected by several hundred students studying over 30 different majors.

Developed by the Museum’s experts, the minor program offers participants the opportunity to explore current trends in contemporary art, contextualized within the evolution of modern intellectual thought and using the example of selected artists and projects. In addition to the basics of the history of art of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, students learn about institutional environments and the cultural industry.

The next enrollment for the program is scheduled for spring 2022. It will be open to bachelor’s students enrolled in HSE in the fall term 2021. Enrollment for the minor program will be available annually for HSE bachelor’s students, in compliance with university regulations.
