Announcing the latest edition to the ELIA Library
Artfutures: Working with Contradictions
in Higher Arts Education 

Artfutures: Working with Contradictions in Higher Arts Education  is now available to download in digital form or to order in hardcopy on the Art Futures Publication webpage.

Artfutures: Working with Contradictions in Higher Arts brings together leading arts practitioners, educators and thinkers - among them Yoko OnoFrédéric Martel, Peter Weibel, and Douglas Couplandthat are key players in the current cultural paradigm because they are actively creating the future cultural landscape. They come from across 14 countries and a variety of disciplines to address the most pressing issues in higher arts education from the perspective of those operating within the field.  

Their contributions cover a wide range of initiatives, from solving the complex problems of urbanity to plotting the future of the cultural ecosystem. In its exploration of diverse geographies, ArtFutures tackles issues such as the rise of the MFA in Europe alongside the need for an inclusive approach to the cultural and creative industries, centred on informal arts education, in Africa.

Together, these papers constitute a unique anthology which highlights the manifold iterations of higher arts education. ArtFutures demonstrates that the tension between these pluralities, together with mediating institutions like the European League of Institutes of the Arts, acts as a driving force in the development of the field.

Hardcopies of the book will be available at the ELIA Biennial Conference 2014 in Glasgow (13-15 November 2014). Hardcopies can also be ordered at the cost of shipping by sending a mailing address to ELIA Office Manager Johan Deeder at johan.deeder@elia-artschools.orgPlease note hard copies will be shipped from the ELIA Executive Office in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
