Comprising a series of 20 conversations conducted by Thorne with the artists, curators and educators behind these schools, the book maps a territory at once fertile and contested. Spanning projects in London, Lagos, Los Angeles, Mexico City, Ramallah, Berlin and Saint Petersburg, among other locations, these critical dialogues respond to spiralling student debt, the MFA system and the “pedagogical turn,” while offering proposals for the future of art education.
