With its innovative concept of ‘art’ from the global south, documenta fifteen provides decisive impulses for the reorientation of art education worldwide. For this reason, EVC is working closely with the "CAMP - NOTES ON EDUCATION" project (LINK) within the framework of documenta fifteen. In 2021 and 2022 we will join our efforts to develop new content, methods and formats for art education in a globalised world. The Chair of Art Education at the University of Augsburg (LINK) forms the interface between EVC and "CAMP - NOTES ON EDUCATION".

In a first phase, and in cooperation with our partner at the University of Hildesheim (LINK), EVC organises a Lecture Series onArts. Cultures. Policies. Educational Practices - Concepts and Approaches Worldwide. The lectures start at 12:00 CET (Central European Time). Dates and speakers:

Parallel to this lecture series, all EVC partners are setting up local regional teams to structure the cooperation within the framework of documenta fifteen. The University of Augsburg's partner from Shandong in China will also be invited. The teams will meet for workshops from February to April 2022.


In a third step these teams bring their results to an International Summer School. The Summer School discusses questions of contemporary art education in the context of documenta fifteen. It will take place in Kassel in August 2022, organised by the University of Augsburg as the centrepiece of EVC's efforts.


Finally, in October 2022, University of Augsburg and EVC will organise a concluding Congress "Art Education Global", at which the experiences made will be documented, reflected upon and evaluated in order to develop forward-looking concepts of education in the context of globalisation.
