The cooperation between the World of Art programme (in frame of of the SCCA−Ljubljana, Center for Contemporary Art) from Ljubljana and the Postgraduate Programme in Curating, Zürich, has taken place on different levels from spring 2011 till summer 2012; it has involved intensive visits of students and lecturers in both cities as well as a shared project that was carried out at International Centre of Graphic Arts (MGLC) in Ljubljana; this is being followed up by the present anthology of articles taken from the World of Art Archive archive of lectures and conversations from 1997 till today. Texts, conversations that we have compiled from an archive of school's diverse activities are bringing together a variety of curatorial approaches, reflections and questions dealing with the potential and impact of curatorial and critical practice in the shifting grounds of the world of art in the last 15 years. All of them were first published in the World of Art Anthologies – the selection of the following relevant texts was made by both programmes to outline an area of shared interests.
