Allan Kaprow, Herbert Kohl, Other Ways Project Pedagogy and the counter culture

Investigation by Géraldine Gourbe

Alternative, institutional and radical pedagogical approaches have seen a renewed interest these past few years. This attraction to new forms of education is often based on unique experiments conducted from 1950 to 1970. After her analysis of the Brazilian revolutionary figure Paulo Freire, Géraldine Gourbe looks at the Other Ways Project, an exceptional pedagogical adventure led by artists Allan Kaprow and Herbert Khol at the height of the counter culture movements on the US West Coast in the late 1960s.
