You are here … or not?

Research, education and practice

7 July - 1:30 p.m

Keynote followed by two panel discussions between artists, educators and researchers.

Can art be taught? Can knowledge be transmitted? Is pedagogy only methodology or is it also a
worldview? What is the relationship between art, research and artistic production? Or between art, money and agency? Can we still say that art is a place of freedom? But then for whom? And where is the viewer in all this? Are you here … or not?

This afternoon of conversations, organised as part of the 40th anniversary of the National school of photography in Arles, with the participation of the Louis-Lumière School in Paris, the Arts Faculty of Paris 8 University and the Institute for Photography Hauts-de-France in Lille, brings together artists, educators and researchers to discuss the interactions between artistic education, professionalisation, the economics and the politics of images.
