This publication on artistic approaches to and practices in the transmission of skills, knowledge and experience within and beyond the art world negotiates challenges and hurdles in a field only recently demarcated. It takes its cues from artistic strategies realised in a series of research projects and collaborations between the MA in Fine Arts degree at Lucerne University of Art & Design and its partners at the Kunstmuseum Luzern, the Historisches Museum von Luzern, the Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst and La Kunsthalle Mulhouse, as well as from innovations in the BA Fine Arts and Art & Design Education degree programme. It presents a forum of perspectives on artistic education composed of practice and research conducted by the teaching staff and associated partners of the University. The authors refer to their own experience of artistic education; to discourse in art theory on public involvement, artistic self-organisation and collective work; and to recent artistic and pedagogical confrontations with critical theory and postcolonial debates. The conception of teaching at art schools is also addressed. The contributions collected here proceed from and end with pedagogical and educational projects that go beyond conventional forms of art education.
