Theoretical concepts are important in contemporary art practices and art education. By presenting the seemingly simple question ‘Why, what and how theory?’ to a range of people who are involved in international art education at MA level in the realm of fine art and performing art, this book provides an array of current options, positions and practices in the field. The texts in THEORY <> ARTS <> PRACTICES reveal the many different ways that theory is applied in the teaching of art. By giving various theoreticians, artists and teachers the opportunity to speak, the transdisciplinary character of theory becomes particularly visible.
The book launch and panel discussion will take place in TRANSFER 3/4 and starts at 17.00. The book will be available for the reduced price of 15 euro.
