13.00 - 17.00 Teachers Seminar

Art schools propose a fundamentally important and highly specific critical space for wider society. In part, they have been enabled to do so by operating in relative autonomy with respect to a mainstream culture of university technocratic reform. Whether we are speaking of stand-alone historic academies or art schools that are contained within larger university-type institutions, we are faced with traditions of artistic pedagogy rooted in the autonomy of students’ individual processes of art making, unfolded in exclusive dialogue with artist-educators.  Considerable challenges are being raised towards these conditions and assumptions. The teacher’s seminar offered by Valand for KUNO 2017 asks what are the potentials for art education when we imagine desegregation within our societies.
