This workshop explores histories of critical thought in art education following the spread of Paulo Freire’s pedagogical concepts and their local uses and responses. When and how did art educators draw on Freire in Johannesburg, Cairo, Zurich, Geneva, London or Vienna? Rather than reiterating Freire’s status as an international emblem of critical pedagogy, we propose to engage with local histories that respond to and correspond with the pedagogy of the oppressed, the meaning produced in translations, and the practices and pedagogical thought that dialogues with Freirean concepts. Engaging with historical sources and interviews brought together by researchers in the project Intertwining hi/stories of Arts Education, we want to understand the travels of Freirean concepts, the contradictions of the international reception, and think about what it means to re-engage Freire today.
