Radical Pedagogy Working Group

2 March - 4 May | Wednesdays, 7-9pm

Course Description

The one thing that an art school never tells you is that they cannot teach you how to be an artist. — Robert Gober

A working group for re-envisioning art education, addressing the basic question: Is it possible to teach artists at all? The fact that artists write lectures, compile reading lists, assemble programs and found schools, proposes an array of possible answers. Every week we will focus on texts created as pedagogical tools by artist-teachers, discussing content while analyzing the strategies and underlying philosophical program. We will also be joined by guest speakers from many artistic disciplines to discuss their experiences in the classroom. Artists from all backgrounds are encouraged to attend.
