Body-​het­eroglos­sia and crip tools for dirty knowl­edges in art teach­ing

Choosing the form of an email-conversation, Doris Arztmann and Eva Egermann discuss their workshop Body-Heteroglossiaunruly inscriptions in art classes and questions it raised. They draw on Disability Studies and Crip Theory, they render normativity in educational contexts problematic, and connect art teaching to negotiations of power and knowledge by drawing on Donna Haraway. Their conversation is a reservoir of tools, texts and proposals for practice: How can a change of perspectives on «disability» take place in schools and specifically in art teaching? From a critical crip perspective the paper shows that such a change means getting dirty.
