Art Education in a Postmodern World

Hardy, Tom (Edited by)

Hardback 166pp Published by Intellect 2006

ISBN 1-84150-146-8

This collection of essays presents a series of papers dealing with the inter - relations 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 the 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 throughout 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 book provides a detailed insight into the various concepts that shape and drive the contemporary art world and expands the debate regarding the impact of postmodern thinking in art education.

Cost (including p&p): £19.50 (U.K.)
