Call for Proposals: Artistic Practices in Educational Contexts


Medienhaus UdK Berlin, June 23/24, 2023

Deadline: April 17, 2023

There is a kind of authoritarian conception of what art is and how it is made and communicated as a practice that overlooks the ways in which forms of knowledge and production of art that deviate from this have been developed in non-authoritarian, resistant or anarchist contexts. In order to counter traditional, academic art pedagogical forms of teaching that are fraught with power structures, we want to look at alternative forms of teaching.

We welcome proposals for a case study to work on during the workshop. The presentation format is open, with a 5-10 minute impulse presentation followed by discussion. Scholars (of various statuses) in art history and related disciplines are invited to apply. The workshop language is English. The workshop implements laboratory formats, such as artistic interventions and discussion formats, in which the sciences and the arts collaborate.

Organized and conceived by Sandra Neugärtner in collaboration with Anna Brus, with support of SFB 1512 "Intervening Arts", in cooperation with the Berlin University of the Arts, the University of Cologne and the Leuphana University of Lüneburg.
