President Dr. Barbara M. Eggert with our semester motto
The Future of Art and Humanities Education – David Quigley und Barbara M. Eggert (Merz Akademie)
Lecture series in the summer semester 2023: “For a new art academy! For a new Europe!” – curated by Prof. Dr. David Quigley.
In the face of the many fundamental crises that haunt the present, we make the claim that we must rethink the goals, methods, and content of art and design education—not with the hope or pretense of being able to “heal the world”, but rather to look towards art and design as models of human activity that can (at the very least) help us to negotiate and create new terms of engagement for working, thinking, and living together.
