Example text

Academic, museographed, codified dead art is traditionally rejected within art schools by students whose own nascent practices find the work of the past to be inadequate as an introduction to life as it takes EDUCATION BY INFECTION 27 place here and now. Modern and contemporary art understands life as being ever changing, as a flow, as a process to which the individual should be permanently adjusted because this process is dangerous to anyone unprepared for change. Education sees the psychology of the student as analogous to a computer whose software should be continually updated to function inside contemporary information networks, to survive all possible virus attacks from the outside world, to incorporate the viruses coming from the outside into his or her own software, and—in the best sense of modernism’s subversive ambition—even to start a hacker attack against the software of the others.

When I went to Britain, I was absolutely amazed because there was a whole set of universities and then there was a whole set of art schools. An art school was something in Britain. If you said to an ordinary person on the street, “Oh, he goes to art school,” they didn’t know what an art school was. But everybody knew there were things called art schools. It was part of the social fabric of Britain. And they ran parallel to each other. We didn’t do the same thing as the kind of education in a university.

Yet its status as the paradigmatic academic setting for training artists and architects, distinct from other environments of professionalization, such as guilds or workshops, extends back even a century and a half earlier. Repeated efforts were made to establish a distinct urban enclave for instruction following the first emergence of autonomous institutions in 1663, principally on the site of and within some of the buildings of a former monastery. By 1791, the Musée des Monuments Français was also housed within the same buildings, but it was not until some forty years later that the construction of an entirely new structure was achieved, the Palace of Studies.
