The Art School of The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and
Art will celebrate the publication of the new book Art School
(Propositions for the 21st Century), edited by Steven Henry Madoff and
published by MIT Press, with an extraordinary gathering of 17 of the
book’s contributors to discuss the future of art education and the
global conditions under which it must be transformed.
Speakers and moderators include Dennis Adams, Thierry de Duve, Shirin
Neshat, Hans Haacke, Boris Groys, Liam Gillick, Saskia Bos, Steven Henry
Madoff, Ernesto Pujol, Ute Meta Bauer, Paul Ramirez Jonas, Jeffrey
Schnapp, Anton Vidokle, Matthew Higgs, Charles Renfro, Dana Schutz, and
Brian Sholis.
Three conversations will take place among the panelists, discussing the
most pressing issues facing the transmission of cultural knowledge today
and for the future. The broad areas of concentration for the
conversations are: “Flows of Knowledge, Infections, Temporary States”;
“The Usefulness of the Academy, Learning and Doing—or Nobody Asked You
to Do Nothing”; and “Social Context and the Role of the Academy in the
21st Century.”
