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 companion volume to the critically acclaimed Curating Subjects, artists, curators, crities 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 teaching and learning
Curating and the Educational Turn is indispensable reading for anyone interested in curating, art practice and pedagogy as creative, engaged and potentially transformative activities. This timely and important collection provides a forum for what has been described as the `educational turn’ in curating and its more broad-based manifestations in art, education and culture.
