Focus No Regrets

No sooner do we take a decision than our mind begins racing. Doubt takes over. This focus reflects on uncertainty, courage, departures, failures and learnings — in other words, the whole repertoire of “no regrets.”

Keyword: courage. The Z-Kubator promotes those courageous enough to take matters into their hands. Philipp Kotsopoulos talks about start-ups, their spirit and zest for action. The urge to progress, to immerse oneself in new things or to reorient oneself inevitably leads many professionals to Regula Stibi, head of the Continuing Education Centre. She knows: it’s never too late to re-skill or up-skill.

An attempt that has to work out: musical improvisation thrives on the occasion. Piano teacher Chris Wiesendanger illustrates the complexity of the art of improvisation. After 13 years at ZHdK, President Thomas D. Meier is stepping down: time for favourite anecdotes and for a glimpse into the future.

Jump cut: the sustainable film productions of two alumni highlight a completely different aspect of not regretting. This focus concludes with very personal aspects and stories from staff and students.
