CAMP notes on education #5, Kassel, 2021

From September 2021 to February 2022, CAMP notes on education is running a series of lectures on Arts, Cultures, Policies, and Educational Practices. In nine online sessions, internationally renowned experts at the interface of Arts, Cultural Policy and Education will present their concepts and approaches. They will be talking about their research within their particular contexts. Through dialogue and knowledge-sharing, participants will have an opportunity to reflect on their own concepts, methods and practical experiences in the context of the upcoming documenta fifteen.

The curatorial approach of the artists’ collective ruangrupa is to locate art in people’s everyday lives and, with documenta fifteen, create a place for shared knowledge production. In line with this concept, the lecture series and its speakers will ask questions about the free and institutionalised spheres of arts and education. CAMP notes on education initiates a dialogue on the social and political factors that influence the emergence of artistic practice.

The series is organized in collaboration with the University of Hildesheim and the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich. The lectures will be moderated by students and held in English due to the presence of international speakers.

CAMP notes on education

CAMP notes on education is a glocal* network of teachers and learners in the fields of arts, arts history, aesthetics, cultural policy and arts education. CAMP uses the practice of lumbung as an opportunity to place the question of contemporary Arts Education in networked and global contexts. For example, what role does it play in relation to artistic and curatorial actors? How does it position itself in the current cultural policy discourse?

The contemporary practice of Arts Education needs new responses to translocal teaching and learning contexts. documenta fifteen should provide a framework for instigating structural change in these areas. lumbung allows CAMP participants to learn about new parameters for horizontal decision-making processes and resource allocation. In the coming weeks and months, CAMP will be working with a growing number of cooperation partners and networks to translate these values, rituals and organizational principles. It will be questioning the foundations and practices of Arts Mediation and looking for ways to learn in and from collectives.

With this focus, CAMP notes on education is constantly growing and opening up spaces for collective and project-based learning.

Thursday December 9, 2021: The Mergoum Protocol: Typically Tunisian, (A)typically German? On Cross-Cultural Exchange

The Mergoum is a typical Tunisian handwoven rug. It’s produced through a set of mixed Arab-Berberian weaving techniques meticulously handed down from generation to generation. It’s a whole transmission philosophy. The weavers must observe a rigorous protocol that highlights the local cultural ethics. Assuming that cross-cultural exchange is a kind of meta-weaving, what can we learn from the techniques and values of Mergoum weavers? And could we break free from our narrow culture-bound ways of interacting with the world in order to open up for a transformative dialogue?

Meriam Bousselmi has been a lawyer registered to the National Order of Lawyers of Tunisia since 2010. Trained to work in different contexts and languages, she works as an international jurist, writer, director, cultural expert and mediator. Her academic and artistic research focuses on empowerment and resistance narratives, as well as cultural diversity and artistic freedom. As part of her PhD thesis at the University of Hildesheim, she is conducting research on the Staging of Justice and the Relationship between Justice and Theatre.
