La educación artística como configuración de lo contemporáneo en el arte
The following text is a personal reflection from my professional experience as a researcher in arte history and art criticism, as well as from my teaching work in art schools at undergraduate and graduate levels. That allows me to think about how the art theory, art history and practice of art necessarily coincide. It is argued, in general, that the notion of contemporary art, rather than a style or a fad, is a space for experimentation that can be used in art schools as a place to think about how it is perceived the immediate reality and how it is that you can single out certain experiences in a unique way, very differently from any other discipline or practice. In that sense, and contrary to what could be expected by the regulations and traditions that predetermine it, the academic space becomes a place where the practice of art can escape the institutionality of the global art world and of certain ways of doing that have become easily understandable codes. Thus, the notion of contemporary art incorporated into the school could even question the very foundations of artistic knowledge allowing certain mobility of the subjects, as well as of the practices.
