Art in Society

Art in society relates to aesthetics as both a variety of practices and as a field of research that has begun a journey toward society and a more applied thinking.

The main focus of the group activities is to evaluate and discuss the possibilities for a contemporary and socially oriented art education, emphasizing the particular and critical qualities of art, as well as looking into what applied principles might mean in a context where education meets new global challenges while also having to address immediate local issues. In order to do this, we will critically investigate and promote new ways of assessing art based competence that can be brought back to education programmes.
