About this book

This edited book gathers seven established art educators-educator artists who address art education from the philosophical position of Deleuze and Guattari. This book raises questions as to where the future of art and its education might be heading if the focus on art was to be repositioned along Deleuze and Guattari’s philosophy of immanence. The chapters are speculative as they query what is ‘thinking’ in the art process. There is an attempt to project other forms of what art can ‘do,’ and the curriculum that can emerge when a student-centered problematic is explored along such lines.

Reviews

“This collection of essays turns art education on its head, not by suggesting an answer to the question in the title, but by opening up the problem of the question. Through a series of provocative expositions written by renowned scholars, the problem is played out through experimentation and productive disturbance. Anyone interested in art and its education should read this book and be prepared to pursue the lines of flight offered, wherever they may lead.” (Kevin Tavin, Head of the Department of Art and Professor of International Art Education, Aalto University, Helsinki, Finland)

“This insightful and inspiring book is a must read. The plane of immanence, ‘signs,’ outrageous disturbances, art education, and the ‘dark Deleuze’ are lines of flight that are created and investigated.  This book represents a major contribution to scholarly work in education, art, and the philosophy of Deleuze and Guattari.” (William M. Reynolds, Associate Professor, College of Education, Georgia Southern University, USA, and Co-editor of “Expanding Curriculum Theory: Dis/Positions and Line of Flight”)
