Art, Architecture, Pedagogy:
Experiments in Learning
The site of education is a complex terrain, literally marked in time by physical, social, imaginary and psychic terms. I teach in a building at CalArts but where does the learning take place? Does the class really end when we leave the room? Likewise, I’m often rehearsing lectures on my long commute to U.C. Riverside and constantly communicating with my students by e-mail. To think about the architecture of an art education, then, is not simply to consider the material spaces of art schools; rather, it is a way to examine how our ideas and fantasies about what an ideal education might look like constantly brush up against the banal reality of institutional corridors and bureaucratic maneuvering.
A publication edited by artist Ken Ehrlich with contributions by Janet Sarbanes, Pat Morton, Tim Durfee, Machine Project, Katie Bachler, The Public School, Liam Gillick and Pablo Helguera.
