The Art of Mediation - International symposium on the relation of critical pedagogy and contemporary art

As a conclusion to the project 'Artists at Schools' tranzit. hu presents an international symposium entitled 'The Art of Mediation', which looks at the relationship between art and education.

With this symposium we would like to investigate how knowledge, authority, power and artistic thinking may interact. The relation of art and education is discussed, on the one hand, on the institutional level with presentations examining the role of art institutions and the 'educational turn' in the art field, alternative and critical pedagogical models in connection with art educational models; student movements and initiatives from the 1960s until today. On the other hand the event focuses on the possibilities of collaboration between artists and young people with regards to interpersonal communication, matters of positioning, knowledge production, mediation, and experiencing.
