How does the political dimension affect culture?

Cultural education

Product description

Art not only has an aesthetic, but also a multi-layered political dimension, which appears to be highly relevant with regard to cultural education. This refers not only to current socio-political developments, but also to a specific and dialectical connection between the spheres of politics and culture or art. Artistic processes are both instruments for identifying political connections and an effective medium of agitation to evoke democratic and aesthetic freedom.
The 9th conference of the Research Network for Cultural Education, which was developed and carried out in cooperation with the Federal Agency for Civic Education, the German Association for Civic Education and the Kunsthalle Osnabrück, addressed the multi-layered relationships between cultural education and its political ones in a dedicated and multi-perspective manner Dimensions apart. The speakers from the fields of art, political and cultural education - whose contributions are being published for the first time in this conference volume - discussed questions about expectations, promises and the relationship between culture and politics. It was about the fundamentals, but also about the scientific discussion of the practical transfer.

The setting of the topics of the conference and volume provides a valuable basis for considering the political action in, with and through cultural education. With its mixture of theory updating and practical insight, "Mission Art" stands out as relevant reading for those interested in academic and cultural education.
