research question: Artist Teacher and Democracy

My work with the diorama investigates the spatiality of embodied aspects of artist teacher practice, as part of a doctoral research on the artist teacher. The artist teacher works from duality, embracing both the diversity and ambiguity of contemporary artistic practice and frames of educational realities. Significant relations between practice and the ideals of progressive education identify how the artist teacher could contribute to educational change. Knowledge construction involves subjectivity and lived experience. Memories of image and space and identity inform my position as an in-sider researcher in the domain of the artist teacher and are investigated in dioramas, allowing to involve different layers of knowledge.
