Collaborations

Researchers at the ZfL maintain a variety of collaborative networks with strong connections to academic and cultural institutions in Berlin, throughout Germany, and around the globe.

International Walter Benjamin Society (IWBS)

The International Walter Benjamin Society (IWBS) brings together scholars and interested readers from around the world. The Society organizes major biannual conferences on Walter Benjamin and related topics and also serves as a clearinghouse for information on other conferences, many of which are organized by members of the Society. The Society's website also publishes announcements – and in some cases reviews – of new publications on Benjamin.

The Artist in Residence Program at the ZfL and ZHdK

The Artist in Residence program began in 2012, forming a bond between the ZfL and Z+, a division of the Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK). Twice a year lecturers from the ZHdK spend approximately four weeks at the ZfL, where they develop artistic and creative projects in close cooperation with researchers at the Center.
