Teaching in Art Schools During a Crisis

Chronicle by Hélène Giannecchini and Nina Leger

Art schools, like other universities, have closed across Europe, forced to carry on through distance learning. With the cancellation of studio practice, art history and theory have tried to fill the void. But neither good intentions nor improved digital tools have made it possible for exchanges to flow smoothly. Two authors and teachers, Hélène Giannecchini and Nina Leger, point out the limits of virtual learning, calling for “a right to inventory and a duty to invent” that might benefit arts education.
