9780791473863: Spectacle Pedagogy: Art, Politics, and Visual Culture

This book examines the complex interrelationships between art, politics, and visual culture through the concept of spectacle pedagogy. In a series of essays Charles R. Garoian and Yvonne M. Gaudelius utilize the narratives of collage, montage, assemblage, installation, and performance art to expose, examine, and critique the pervasive influence of visual culture. Looking at current events such as the war in Iraq and on terrorism, as well as modes of communication that include advertising and photography, they note that while visual culture has the power to teach us what and how to see and think, as well as to influence how humans interact with one another, it is imperative to understand--particularly for students--the complex and contradictory relationships that exist between art-making activities and the spectacle pedagogy of visual culture.

Gaudelius is the coauthor (with Peg Speirs) of Contemporary Issues in Art Education.

Review:

Garoian and Gaudelius eloquently reconceptualize critical pedagogy within the theoretical framework of collage. By emphasizing the political decentering processes of collage, Spectacle Pedagogy proves collage to be an invaluable concept for the practice of critical pedagogy within the spectacle of media culture. TOPIA
Spectacle Pedagogy, written by two of the most forward-thinking scholars in the field, is timely, relevant, and pushes art education theory beyond its limits. Intellectually speaking, it is one of the best books I ve read in a long time. Kristin Congdon, author of Community Art in Action
The topics that the authors address are cutting-edge and compelling, and the authors are obviously passionate about them, but also reasoned in their approach. Doug Blandy, coeditor of Remembering Others: Making Invisible Histories of Art Education Visible"
