<nettime-ann> conference: internationalisation of art education


On March 14 and 15 2011, Willem de Kooning Academy Rotterdam University will organise an international conference on the internationalisation of art education.

The past decade was characterised by many new connections, mainly based on international student mobility. Due to international developments in higher art education, we now observe an increased demand for new networks, joint ventures of art colleges focusing on solid international collaboration. During the two-day conference, experts and executives from the world of international arts education will meet to develop and share their visions on the future of international art education.

Speakers will be:

  • Drs. Gerard J. van Drielen, Member of Executive Board Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences: Internationalisation? What is global in the local?
  • Prof. Dr. Hans Peter Schwarz, Founding President em. Zurich University of the Arts: The Utopian Art School, some independent remarks on a possible future of higher education in the arts
  • Ass. Professor Li Keling, Dean Fashion Art & Design Institute Donghua University (Shanghai, China): International art education from a Chinese perspective
  • Dr. Ray Allen, Vice-President for Academic Affairs and Provost Maryland Institute College of Art: How the financial crisis and budget cuts change internationalisation strategies
