Due date: January 2017. Publisher's description: What are the possibilities and limits of self-organized art education in the 21st century? What can be borrowed from traditional academies, and what should be jettisoned? A substantial survey of self-organized art schools and alternative education initiatives, School presents a range of projects in London, Los Angeles, Berlin, Lagos, Mexico City, Ramallah and St. Petersburg, among others. Founding artists, curators and educators map the fertile but contested territory of student debt, the MFA system, the "pedagogical turn," and the future of art schools. Includes Ahmet Oangut -- founder of The Silent University, organized by migrant academics and political refugees, a multilingual, nomadic institution in Germany -- Tania Bruguera, Chto Delat, Ryan Gander and Wael Shawky. Sam Thorne, director of Nottingham Contemporary, UK, and regular contributing editor of Frieze.org and other international publications including Tate Etc, is founding director of Open School East, a free art school located in a former public library in East London.
