Bridge over troubled water : (a bit on contemporary art, a lot on art education and maybe something on society)
Tomaž Zupančič, 2012, published scientific conference contribution (invited lecture)

Abstract: Who should be blamed for the gap between contemporary visual art and the society? Certainly this is not art, irrespective of how strange could be at the first sight. Contemporary art education should build the bridge over troubled water of incomprehension between contemporary visual culture and the society. According to Arthur Efland the main purpose of art education in a post-modern era is to widen and deepen our understanding of the cultural landscape we inhabit. Today's art education involves contemporary art into classroom by using the same methods, attitudes, principles that determine and are characteristic for contemporary art. It stresses teacher's descending the pedestal, the diversity of comprehending, reading artworks and other principles. An artist who is critical of Society sees as a creator, not a destroyer. Contemporary art education tries to do its best and step toward contemporary art, enjoy it and permit it to mirror and reflect the other, sometimes the dark side of ourselves.
