CAMP notes on education

CAMP notes on education is a glocal network of teachers and learners in the fields of arts, arts history, aesthetics, cultural policy and cultural education. CAMP uses the practice of lumbung as an opportunity to place the question of contemporary Arts Education in networked and global contexts. For example, what role does it play in relation to artistic and curatorial actors? How does it position itself in the current cultural policy discourse?

New formats in Arts Education and Mediation can emerge at the interface between institutions and grassroots movements. What opportunities and challenges for Arts Education and participation processes are being created by these innovations in and around institutions? CAMP notes on education provides a platform for joint reflection and exchange on these issues.

lumbung is the concrete practice adopted on the path towards documenta fifteen in 2022 and beyond.  Here, lumbung is to be understood as a kind of pooled collective resource based on the principle of communality. […] At the heart of lumbung is the envisioning and development of these collective, shared resources for new sustainability models and cultural practices.” (ruangrupa)

The contemporary practice of Arts Education needs new responses to translocal teaching and learning contexts. documenta fifteen should provide a framework for instigating structural change in these areas. lumbung allows CAMP participants to learn about new parameters for horizontal decision-making processes and resource allocation. In the coming weeks and months, CAMP will be working with a growing number of cooperation partners and networks to translate these values, rituals and organizational principles. It will be questioning the foundations and practices of Arts Mediation and looking for ways to learn in and from collectives.

With this focus, CAMP notes on education is constantly growing and opening up spaces for collective and project-based learning.
