Example text

That is to say, it is a school where the goal is to train artists; a school where artistic tradition is transmitted from one generation of artists to another; and not a center for the diffusion of contemporary art that adapts a message that is identical, perhaps, to that of other publics and their various demands. A school such as this is a professional school in a very paradoxical sense, since it specifically addresses the young men and women whose vocation destines them to address everyone. The question of the public, or publics, is in fact a question of address; envisaged sociologically, this is a false problem.

An art school functions well when everyone is assigned his or her rightful place in relation to the address, provided, of course, that this place is not static. ) But if the question of address is not made a theme in the school, everyone is majoring in communication. There are no longer addresses in the plural; publics are targeted; information is disseminated; pedagogy itself becomes a kind of strategy. Allow me to play devil’s advocate for a moment: Let’s imagine that art schools are done away with.

Two immediate solutions offer themselves. The first is to overcome them, suppress them, ignore them, especially by turning to teachers who do the same; the second is, by logical extension, to leave art and go out into communities to heal the world. Both solutions betray the initial modernist project to live through one’s infections without sanitizing either oneself or the world. And just as obvious, neither has led to the advancement of artistic practice or of its teaching. Art practice itself is always already infected by politics.
