For the past year, I’ve been interviewing different people engaged in art, design, curating and pedagogy to better understand the changes and challenges art schools face. Throughout these conversations, questions about value surfaced again and again.
Last week I was contacted about writing a review of Against Value in the Arts and Education for the International Journal of Education through Art. Needless to say, I jumped at the chance, and now eagerly await my review copy. I’m curious about the various contributors and their reflections. I wonder whether they will echo or not some of the issues and observations that have been raised in my ongoing conversations.
