Art Education in the Postmodern World : Collected Essays, Paperback / softback Book

Art Education in the Postmodern World : Collected Essays Paperback / softback

Edited by Tom Hardy

Part of the Readings in Art and Design Education Series series


This volume presents a series of papers concerned with the interrelations between the postmodern and the present state of art and design education.

Spanning a range of thematic concerns, the book reflects upon existing practice and articulates revolutionary prospects potentially viable through a shift in educative thinking.

Many of the essays pinpoint the stagnancy of teaching methods today and discuss the reductive parameters enforced by the current curriculum.

The radical tone that echoes through the entire series of papers is unmistakable.

Throughout the book, postmodern theory informs the polemical debate concerning new directions in educative practice.

Contributors shed new light on a postmodern view of art in education with emphasis upon difference, plurality and independence of mind.

Ultimately, the paper provides a detailed insight into the various concepts that shape and drive the contemporary art world and expands the debate regarding the impression of postmodern thinking in art education.
