Politics of Study

30 USD

There's not a single contemporary art college or university today that isn't a battleground. These wars are wars about value, meaning, pedagogy, criticality, and above all, unfortunately, the market. Whether we rise above them, move sideways, go underground, embrace or escape these fights, we did not choose them and their terms generate increasing losses for all those who still desire a relationship to something irreducible to money. This collection of interviews contains passionate visions and analyses that lay bare the stakes of our contemporary political, emotional and educational predicament.

This book examines the current interest in education through a series of conversations with artists, theorists, activists and educators -including Suhail Malik, Brian Holmes, Ruth Sonderegger, Gerald Raunig, Judy Chicago, Gal Kirn, Mohammad Salemy, Melissa Gordon, Marina Vishmidt and Andrea Fraser-who are all actively involved in developing new models of study. Ranging from self-organized learning to critical teaching methodologies, the alternatives gathered here offer a resource for those interested in the renewed politicization of education, new modes of knowledge production and teaching methodologies.
