Arts. Cultures. Policies. Educational Practices

Concepts and Approaches Worldwide


With its innovative concept of ‘art’ from the global south, documenta fifteen has provided decisive impulses for the reorientation of art education worldwide. For this reason, EVC was working closely with the "CAMP - NOTES ON EDUCATION" project (LINK) within the framework of documenta fifteen to develop new content, methods and formats for art education in a globalised world. In cooperation with the University of Hildesheim (LINK), EVC has been organising a lecture series onArts. Cultures. Policies. Educational Practices - Concepts and Approaches Worldwide. All lectures and their discussion are available online.
