The Artuarium presents keywords to reflect on art education today. Every keyword contains a text and/or an image that has been constitutive for the formation of the art school. Some texts unfold critical ideas and questions, some images evoke careful observations, some texts tell stories, others reflect on the reflection, and so on. The Artuarium is a collection, not a system. It is a possible archive of a moment in time, a nucleus, network, labyrinth. You are invited to enter, to read, to bring in your experiences, and to discover statements of artists and theoreticians, as well as examples of both their practices.
