Art School with mi­gra­tion back­ground

Pre­lim­i­nary thoughts based on a study of in­equal­i­ty in the field of the art school

Based on the results of the project making differences which deals with social injustice in the field of Swiss art schools, the paper focuses on real and imaginary inclusions and exclusions of migrants. It intends to draw a picture of the ambiguous politics of difference at the global art school and to inquire into the interpellations and subjectivations it entails. It exposes the proclaimed and enforced internationality of the art school – in the sense of Chakrabarty – as «provincial» and falling short of today’s global migration society.
