In recent years there has been increased debate on the incorporation of pedagogy into curatorial practice—on what has been termed “the educational turn” (“turn” in the sense of a paradigmatic
re-orientation, within the arts). In this new volume, artists, curators, critics and academics respond to this widely recognized turn in contemporary art. Consisting primarily of newly
commissioned texts, from interviews and position statements to performative text and dialogue,
Curating and the Educational Turn also includes a small number of previously published writings that have proved primary in the debate so far. This anthology presents an essential cultural question for anyone interested in the cultural politics of production at the intersections of art, teaching and learning.
