Educating Artists for the Future: Learning at the Intersections of Art, Science, Technology, and Culture

Educating Artists for the Future

In Educating Artists for the Future, some of the world’s most innovative thinkers in higher education in art and design offer fresh directions for educating artists for a rapidly evolving post-digital future. Their creative redefinition of art at the interdisciplinary interface where scientific enquiry and new technologies shape aesthetic and cultural values offers groundbreaking guidelines for art education in an era of emerging new media. This is the first book concerned with educating artists for the post-digital age, propelling artists into unknown territory.

A culturally diverse range of art educators focus on teaching their students to create artworks that explore the complex balance between cultural pride and global awareness. They demonstrate how the dynamic interplay between digital, biological, and cultural systems calls for alternative pedagogical strategies that encourage student-centered, self-regulated, participatory, interactive, and immersive learning. Educating Artists for the Future charts the diaphanous boundaries between art, science, technology, and culture that are reshaping art education.

Culture and Technology begins with several useful and clear definitions of its key themes—technology and technique, culture and the intersection between these.


Electronic Arts in Australia

Thursday, December 3rd, 1992




I offer a very critical account of technology and of technology 's impact on the world. I'm not the only one to do this – everybody speaks of technology in this way. But now having reconsidered technology … I'm beginning to formulate another hypothesis … In other words, there's a difference of vision. Let's say that the rather critical or pejorative vision of technology represents a first position.Now, from a second position, I'm more interested in seeing technology as an instrument of magic … Up to now I think that technology has been analysed in too realistic a way … it has been typecast as a medium of alienation and depersonalisation. That's what we've done, and that's what we're continuing to do in analyses of virtual reality – it's possible to continue forever in this sort of direction.    

But I sense now that a sort of reversal of focus is taking place … I'll always continue to offer a radically critical analysis of media and technology – one's obliged to do this. But it's also necessary to identify another sort of analysis – a more subtle form of analysis than that one.

– Jean Baudrillard (Paris, 4 June, 1993)
