On the 20th of January Intertwining HiStories was presented by Karin Schneider and Emma Wolukau-Wanambwa during the Symposium Whose Museum Is It? Questions and Conditions Regarding Museum Mediation in a Global Context in Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen, Düsseldorf. 

Below you can find the abstract of the presentation by Karin:


Our presentation will offer a first insight into the approach of “Intertwining HiStories

(http://colivre.net/intertwining-histories) a project of the network Another Roadmap for Arts Education (http://colivre.net/another-roadmap) that seeks to establish a global, multi-vocal understanding of the histories of educating in and through the arts. Certain working groups of this network study histories of arts education and their global overlapping within the context of particular case studies. Our aim is to understand how European concepts of art education, based on the idea of an “Other” in need of education and reform (e.g. the working poor, the colonialized subject) were constructed, transferred to the colonies, but also appropriated and intertwined with local approaches. The project also seeks to trace historical and contemporary counter-narratives to the dominant history and the often surprising intertwining of histories.

 Following a general overview on the project, our conference presentation provide two examples: (1) The ongoing research of the Kampala working group into the impact of British colonial governmentality on the establishment and development of formal visual arts and visual arts education in the Uganda Protectorate in the early- and mid-twentieth century and (2) the first starting points of the Viennese working group’s research into the construction of the figure of the “child” and the “Other” in Viennese discourses on art education in the 19th and 20th centuries.
