From September 2021 to February 2022, CAMP notes on education was running a series of lectures on Arts, Cultures, Policies, and Educational Practices. In nine online sessions, internationally renowned experts at the interface of Arts, Cultural Policy and Education presented their concepts and approaches. They talked about their research within their particular contexts. Through dialogue and knowledge-sharing, participants will have an opportunity to reflect on their own concepts, methods and practical experiences in the context of the upcoming documenta fifteen.
The curatorial approach of the artists’ collective ruangrupa is to locate art in people’s everyday lives and, with documenta fifteen, create a place for shared knowledge production. In line with this concept, the lecture series and its speakers asked questions about the free and institutionalized spheres of arts and education. CAMP notes on education initiates a dialogue on the social and political factors that influence the emergence of artistic practice.
The series is organized in collaboration with the University of Hildesheim and the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich. The lectures were moderated by students and held in English due to the presence of international speakers.
