Symposium: Black Mountain – Educational Turn and the Avantgarde
Black Mountain College (1933-1957) developed an unprecedented prominent genealogy of artists, scientists, and intellectuals in the neo-avant-garde of the 20th century. As an educational art institution, it established performative practices of interdisciplinary learning and researching, which included at least two crucial factors: collaboration and experimentation. This unique complicity of an educational turn and the emergence of an avant-garde is of crucial interest in today’s debates on issues of education and pedagogy in art, science, and academia under precarious economic circumstances.
The international symposium will take place from September 25 to September 26 at Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart – Berlin.
