Abstract

Art Schools are key sites for the formation of material culture, yet have resisted narrativisation of their own materiality. This article examines the heritage of art schools and suggests strategies for assessing the material and immaterial practices it produces. It surveys a number of counter-hegemonic practices historically within the twentieth-century art school, before considering material encounters in the art school and the spatial-temporal qualities of the art school site. The article argues for a model of temporal uncertainty and fluidity that can be experienced as Art School Time where flexible, cross-disciplinary spaces for as yet unknown material and immaterial encounters enable students to develop new tactics to address societal challenges within the multi-layered and multisensorial spaces of the art school.
