In most countries art education is not immune from a large-scale reorganisation. Educational institutions are increasingly required to operate as enterprises that compete for the best or the largest number of students and to express their objective and results in financial and management terms. In short, the field of education has become a market. Whether there is still room for art in it remains an important question.

Teaching Art in the Neoliberal Realm investigates the effects of this setup on content and practice of artistic education and the position of art and the artist. The perspective is international.

The book consists of three thematic chapters as well as interviews and essays that adopt a practical investigative or theoretical approach. more
