Out now: Curating and the Educational Turn
Curating and the Educational Turn http://www.deappel.nl http://www.openeditions.com
Following the bestseller from 2007 Curating Subjects Open Editions (London) and de Appel arts centre (Amsterdam) publish the companion: Curating and the Educational Turn. Edited by Paul O’Neill & Mick Wilson In recent years there has been increased debate about the incorporation of pedagogy into art and curatorial practice – about what has been termed ‘the educational turn’. In this follow up volume to the critically acclaimed Curating Subjects, artists, curators, critics and academics respond to this widely recognised sense of art’s paradigmatic re-orientation towards the educational. Consisting primarily of newly commissioned texts, from interviews and position statements to performative texts and dialogues, Curating and the Educational Turn also includes a small number of previously published writings that have proved pivotal in the debate so far. This anthology presents an essential enquiry for anyone interested in the cultural politics of production at the intersections of art, curating, and educational praxis.
