Deschooling and Deskilling by Vivian Sky Rehberg


n the realm of contemporary art practice, deschooling and deskilling presuppose the possibility of forgetting—the forgetting of institutionalized modes of learning, with their structures and hierarchies, and the forgetting of skills or competencies one has acquired in order to mine some untapped well of artistic potential.
Vivian Sky Rehberg’s lecture contextualizes these terms and considers how they have infiltrated our discussions of art education, the recent ‘pedagogical turn’ in contemporary art, and the drive to devise alternative educational models over the past few decades. Rehberg will do so in order to sketch out some of the ideological implications of promoting deschooling and deskilling as radical artistic and educational modes under neoliberalism and to pose the question: who (or what) benefits most from deschooling and deskilling?
