The conference "art thinking doing art. Artistic Practices in Educational Contexts from 1900 to Today" opens a historical as well as contemporary investigation of the interrelationships between art education, art production and ideological contexts. With contributions from scholars from twelve different countries, this project takes a uniquely broad perspective on the question of art education by also epistemologically situating the process of "knowledgization" in broader discussions of the (inter-)materiality, (counter-)institutionality, and (trans-)disciplinarity of artistic practices, and by using empirical case studies to examine their historical dimensions in different geopolitical contexts for the period from about 1900 to the present. 

Artistic perspectives are involved throughout the event. They unfold an Intervening Space whose fundamental characteristic is to be exploratory. The Raqs Media Collective's Intervening Lecture, unobtrusively integrated into the academic lecture series, and the collective's constant presence in workshops throughout the event counteract a monoperspectival orientation of the discussions from the outset. 

Key Lectures: Benjamin Buchloh and Tom Holert.

Other Lectures: Bernard Akoi-Jackson, Nicola Foster, Tom Holert, Annette Jael Lehmann, Jeffrey Saletnik, Emily Ruth Capper, Rebecca Sprowl, Noa Sadka.

The project was conceived, planned and organized by Sandra Neugärtner, Assistant Professor, Institute of Philosophy and Art History, Leuphana University Lüneburg. The implementation is supported by Anna Brus, Research Associate, Art History Institute of the University of Cologne. The project is funded by the Collaborative Research Center 1512 "Intervening Arts" (DFG), Leuphana University Lüneburg, Berlin University of the Arts and the University of Cologne.
