Following in the footsteps of the first Curating Degree Zero symposium (Bremen, 1998), the touring archive provided the backdrop for a number of events between 2003 and 2008:

A mini-symposium took place on the archive’s visit to Bremen in August 2003, with presentations by Stella Rollig, Helmut Draxler, Frederikke Hansen, and a discussion moderated by Barnaby Drabble and Dorothee Richter.

Lectures, teach-ins and interventions into the archive, accompanied the exhibition at the Centre D’Art Contemporain in Geneva, as part of a longer collaboration with the students of the postgraduate program CCC (critical curatorial cybermedia) at L’Ecole Superieure des Beaux-Arts in the city.

During its tour through Switzerland and Austria, the archive became the focus of various online discussions, on new-media art and ‘criticality’, hosted primarily by the CRUMB (Sunderland) and Discordia (Vienna) lists.

Lise Nellemann's hosting and reinterpretation of the archive at Sparwasser HQ in Berlin (Autumn 2005) featured a number of talks and discussions, based on her invitation to various artists and curators to select and present 'favourites' from the archive. Amongst those invited to speak were Beatrice von Bismarck, Astrid Mania, Michael Baers, Ulrike Solbrig, Christoph Lang & Stephan Meylan and Kent Hansen.

In 2005 the archive staged 3 discussion events as part of the England Tour:

In 2006 and 2007 the archive hosted assorted events including teach-ins at the Nuova Accademia in Milan, lectures and discussions at Insa Art Space in Seoul and talks and a week long workshop as part of the archive's presence at Point Éphémère in Paris. The archive also visited Bergen, Norway, where the hosts Rakett organised a variety of cook-ins, talks and presentations.

During its visit to the West Cork Arts Centre in 2008, Mick Wilson organised a day seminar entitled "Talking Curators", which explored the progress of the debate on curating over the previous decade and the future possibilities this revealed. Later that year, during the exhibition at the Galerija Miroslav Kraljevic in Zagreb, activities around the archive included a lecture and discussion with Dorothee Richter.
