LETTING ART TEACH. ART EDUCATION ‘AFTER’ JOSEPH BEUYS

Prof. Gert Biesta

Hugh lane Gallery on the 6th Feb. 1.00 – 4.30

Gert Biesta is one of the most important theorists working in educational discourse today. In his key works; Beyond Learning (2016), Good education in the Age of Measurement (2010), The Beautiful Risk of Education (2014), he has defended the unique value of education against its economic rationalization through the ‘language of learning’. Most recently Prof. Biesta has turned his attention to art education with the publication of Letting Art Teach: Art Education After Joseph Beuys (2017) which explores the various ways that art and education are instrumentalised in educational discourse and policy. For Biesta, the teaching of art should enable students to have a unique dialogue with the world. Replacing the over-emphasis on ‘student-centered’ learning with a call for ‘world-centered’ education, Biesta affirms the value of art and teaching as an ‘event’ that opens up spaces for the student to be addressed by the world, and in turn, to address the world back.

Letting Art Teach at the Hugh lane Gallery on the 6th Feb will expand on the ideas developed in Letting Art Teach. Education After Joseph Beuys (2017). To enable a broader discussion on these ideas three art educators from three different art institutions have been invited to respond to the presentation, they are: Dr. Brian Fay (DIT), Prof. Brian Hand (NCAD), Dr. Tina Kinsella (IADT).

The discussion will be chaired by Dr. Sharon Todd (Maynooth University).

Dr. EL Putnam has developed a site specific performance for the event:

Bio-pedagogy (1) Towards a Genealogy of Pedagogical Gestures
