Questioning pedagogical models in current art school education
Models for teaching within Universities are so well established that it is far too easy to take them for granted. The hierarchical roles within an institution can seem rigid and inflexible yet the staff and student roles within the art school, although played out in the conventional university practice of lecture, seminar or tutorial, are both orientated towards an over-arching concept ‘artist’ against which either role can be measured or challenged.
Over the last couple of years I have been working on a series of interrelated performances that explore the role of University education as it confronts art practice and challenge the implicit hierarchies. Taking the lecture as my starting point I deliberately created performative talks that in some way question my authority or role, adding fear to unsettle encounters that are designed by the institution to be stable.
The lecturer dressed as a robot repeats fragments from past lectures randomly selected by members of the audience.

Abstract

Questioning pedagogical models in current art school education
Models for teaching within Universities are so well established that it is far too easy to take them for granted. The hierarchical roles within an institution can seem rigid and inflexible yet the staff and student roles within the art school, although played out in the conventional university practice of lecture, seminar or tutorial, are both orientated towards an over-arching concept ‘artist’ against which either role can be measured or challenged.
Over the last couple of years I have been working on a series of interrelated performances that explore the role of University education as it confronts art practice and challenge the implicit hierarchies. Taking the lecture as my starting point I deliberately created performative talks that in some way question my authority or role, adding fear to unsettle encounters that are designed by the institution to be stable.
The lecturer dressed as a robot repeats fragments from past lectures randomly selected by members of the audience.
