'In recent years, there has been increased debate about the incorporation of pedagogy into art and curatorial practice — about what has been termed the "educational turn". In this companion volume to the critically acclaimed Curating Subjects, artists, curators, critics and academics respond to this widely recognised sense of art's paradigmatic re-orientation towards the educational. Consisting primarily of newly commissioned texts, from interviews and position statements to performative texts and dialogues, Curating and the Educational Turn also includes a small number of previously published writings that have proved pivotal in the debate so far. This anthology presents an essential enquiry for anyone interested in the cultural politics of production at the intersections of art, teaching and learning.' —Occasional Table (back cover)
