“Intimacy with a Stranger: Art, Education and the (Possible) Politics of Love” offers theoretical approaches to the question of love in the context of art, education, and politics, especially focusing on the notion of completion. It is Plato’s “The Symposium” that provides one of the most well known description of love as a unity of two violently separated parts; that, in other words, love completes us by turning dualities into unities. Interestingly enough, the idea that we need something other than us to complete ourselves has a strong place in political and educational thought, especially among art educators (as Edmund Burke Feldman’s book title “Becoming Human Through Art” suggests). Vis-à-vis this tradition, how could we understand love (together with art, education, and politics) as something other than a mere completion of ourselves, but as a possibly radical opening to strangeness that disrupts predetermined unities?
During the workshop, we will focus on the topic of intimacy and discuss it in relation to articles and artworks as well as artistic and educational practices.
