Contemporary Art & Artists in Education (MMAART_06) Module Tutors: Lesley Burgess and Claire Robins
Autumn Term

The module will enable you to engage critically with contemporary art (practices and discourses) and to investigate the potential of contemporary art and artists to inform practice in different educational contexts, e.g. schools, colleges, galleries and museums. It aims to challenge educational orthodoxies and question myths surrounding modernism by considering contemporary art in the context of the wider field of visual and material culture. In order to explore debates and practices you will be introduced to analytical methodologies.

Assessment takes the form of a 5,000-word assignment.
