It's online "Expectations as Reality", my new essay on art & design education.* I tried to weave together various themes that are particularly close to my heart and to my world, that is, the art and design school: professional "proprioception", the role of the intellectual, self-design, the problem of access to problems, the persistence of the two cultures, the spectacle of self-aggrandizing ethics, and the ethos of compromise. Writing it meant running into a number of contradictions, and my attempt to overcome them was not easy because it meant placing myself outside a certain antagonistic comfort zone. The result is this river of text. Read it, if you have time, and let me know what you think about it, if you feel like.
The text appears on the New Design Congress, which I highly admire for their in-depth work on design politics, ethics and technology. Publishing build bridges. Big thanks to @shibco
@entreprecariat@shibco I am currently (subway) reading it and I like it! I like the deconstruction of school = protected space. Very true, It makes me think a lot! (I am a master jury in Rennes design school tomorrow).
@entreprecariat@shibco I just had today an hard school meeting with my colleague and your article resonnate with our discussion and disagreement ! It’s always a pleasure to read something about deconstruction of the myth of our schools…
