Titel We are multiple –Notes on developing art education
Person och roll
Beskrivning In the presentation I will discuss the MFA programme Critical & Pedagogical Studies at Malmö Art Academy that I have been developing the past five years. The programme was initiated in 2011 as a progressive venture that enter into a field including aspects of artistic practice, research and pedagogy explored from the position of the artist. The three main areas (practice, pedagogy and critical theory) are combined and form the core of the programme–disciplines which otherwise tend to be divided within contemporary art education. Through dialogical and collective learning situations for a small group of artists and participants, the programme encourages a space for critical reflection upon the multiple positions that artists can inhabit. These positions can be seen as a necessity for exploring different articulations in the field of art, but often they have become a prerequisite for making a living by means of artistic practice. For instance, teaching and pedagogy can play a significant role in expanding the multiple positions that one can inhabit in an artistic practice. During the presentation I would like to elaborate a bit on pedagogy as artistic method and matter, in order to better address its materiality or immateriality, as well as the notion of artists teaching artists.
