The Laurenz Foundation funds two professorships at the Universität Basel: the Schaulager Professorship for Art Theory (since 2013) and the Laurenz Assistant Professorship for Contemporary Art (since 2002).
In creating this partnership with the university, Schaulager has helped to substantially strengthen the curriculum in the area of contemporary art and generate an ongoing exchange between the institutions. The partnership involves teaching and research projects as well as the joint organisation of scholarly events.
