BACK TO THE SANDBOX: ART AND RADICAL PEDAGOGY
15 JAN 2016 - 10.04.2016
Reykjavík Art Museum, Iceland

We are born with an enormous capacity for learning, but there is ample evidence to suggest that most of this potential declines in school. We don’t learn to learn, and therefore learn less while, in fact, we need to learn more. Inspired by this paradox the exhibition Back to the Sandbox: Art and Radical Pedagogy features the work of artists who see education and learning as a critical field in today’s world.

Back to the Sandbox includes the work of Luis Camnitzer, James Duignan, Priscila Fernandes, Michael Joaquin Grey, Ane Hjort Guttu, Markus Kayser, Eva Koťátková, James Mollison, Palle Nielsen, Petr Nikl, Renzo Piano and The Society for a Merrier Present.
Exhibition curated by Jaroslav Anděl.

While education is currently under financial and ideological pressure, learning is flourishing. Learning is not a self-contained period of time and place in which we magically transform into adults, but rather a life-long condition, a process that now permeates everywhere and everything at all times. For some learning is a luxury, yet for others it’s an economic necessity. Learning can be a tool of social liberation, but also one of financial subjugation and political oppression. In this issue of Volume, we’re thinking about what it means to learn: how it happens, where, by what, for whom, and why. Learning points us in a direction and gives us tools; does it also teach us how to use them and make a move?
