“Teaching Artistic Strategies” is a four-day symposium on research and pedagogy in the context of art and design institutions. It is aimed at junior researchers in practice-based research in art and design and art and design education, co-organized by the Institute of Arts and Design Education (IADE) and the Make/Sense PhD Program IXDM at FHNW Academy of Art and Design, Basel.
The symposium will offer an opportunity to junior scholars to consider their research in terms of teaching and reflect on their contribution to knowledge by transferring research topics and methods into innovative pedagogies. Selected participants will present teaching formats that come out of their research projects. The symposium will provide a supportive environment to present their research strategies and a network platform to engage with international peers.
The symposium will take place from Monday to Thursday, 23-26. May 2022. It will include three introductory workshops offered by the organizers, twelve teaching demonstrations by selected participants, complemented by three keynote lectures by invited guests who make important contributions to the fields of artistic research and teaching. The organizers plan to publish the outputs of the symposium in a special issue of a journal on arts and design education and artistic research.
The event addresses the challenge of transferring academic knowledge - produced in art education and practice-based research - to teaching programs, formats, and skills. The organizers propose to focus on this challenge through experimental approaches characteristic of the research practices of the participants.
The symposium will take place during four consecutive days, with morning workshops, afternoon presentation sessions and evening lectures.
The symposium is organized by the Institute of Arts and Design Education (IADE) and the Make/Sense PhD Program, IXDM at FHNW Academy of Art and Design, Basel. The organizing team consists of three researchers: Dr. Selena Savić, Head of Make/Sense PhD Program, Fatma Kargin, doctoral candidate at GCSC Justus Liebig University of Giessen, Germany and researcher and lecturer at the Institute of Arts and Design Education FHNW and Prof. Dr. Dorothée King, Head of the Institute Arts and Design Education, FHNW Academy of Art and
