In Performative Approaches in Arts Education, researchers, artists and practitioners from philosophy and the arts elaborate on what performative approaches can contribute to 21st century arts education. Introducing new perspectives on learning, the contributors provide a central international perspective, developing a paradigm in which the artist, teacher and researcher's form of teaching is enmeshed with content, and human agency is entangled with non-human matter.
The book explores issues connected to both teaching and learning in the arts, engaging in debates about the value of meaning making in the artistic process, the way social ethos can guide performative approaches and the changes in education that performative approaches can bring.
Performative Approaches in Arts Education will be of great interest to academics, researchers and post-graduate students in the fields of arts education, philosophy of education and education research methods. It will also appeal to teachers and teacher educators, artists and teaching artists.
