Finland’s Visual Arts Curriculum for Schools (Architecture, Visual Arts and Craft) – Learning to nurture ideas

John W. Momot's insight:

"Rather than valuing STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) over the arts like many Western countries, Finland considers the arts to be vital and weaves it through their entire education system."

articles/Egypts art world rallies to defend freedom of expression
John W. Momot's insight:

Artists across Egypt are being pressured by the Islamic Brotherhood gaining power. “Long Live Free Art” movement growing to oppose censorship pressures against TV, news media, comics, and writers. Does this effect us in the West? Egypt, a powerful force in the Middle East sliding back into tyranny cannot bode well for free-thinking, democratic minded peoples.

Waving Goodbye to Hegemony: China, Europe and the US in the New World Order | The Asia-Pacific Journal

Waving Goodbye to Hegemony: China, Europe and the US in the New World Order | The Asia-Pacific Journal | Globalization & art education | Scoop.it
The Asia-Pacific Journal: Japan Focus. In-depth critical analysis of the forces shaping the Asia-Pacific . . . and the world. The Asia-Pacific Journal seeks to illuminate the geopolitics, economics, history, society, culture, international relations and forces for change in the modern and contemporary Asia-Pacific.
John W. Momot's insight:

Interesting to read what the author back in 2008 thought the global political scene in 2016 might look like. Of course he guessed some wrong, but the main arguments outlining America’s decline still holds water. His assertions that America cannot successfully negotiate the world’s stage as the sole super power is spot on. The US will share the stage with China and Europe. I wonder how great a role Europe will indeed play moving forward, especially in light of the splintering effect of Russia’s turmoil in the Ukraine and the ongoing Greco-Euro financial crisis.

Build me up: how architecture can affect emotions

Build me up: how architecture can affect emotions | Globalization & art education | Scoop.it
In our technological age, when so many of our social experiences are virtual, the role architecture can play in the experience of real-time situations is increasingly curious. How does architecture affect…
John W. Momot's insight:

Many contemporary spaces and buildings have homogenized uses. The need for architecture to move us is acute as ever. A library can heighten appreciation of space and light. A hospital can be a megalithic, sterile factory-like complex, or a calming, spiritual retreat, like the cancer center pictured above.

BHU01.0001.xxf1s (MODEL RELEASED IMAGE).In Shingkhey, a remote hillside village of a dozen homes, Nalim and Namgay's family assembles in the prayer room of their three-story rammed-earth house with one week's worth of food for their extended family of thirteen. Cooking method: clay stove fueled by wood fire. 

John W. Momot's insight:

Is photojournalism art? If so, Peter Menzel's beautifully crafted photo series should qualify. His works raise potent issues surrounding human consumption in luscious detail. His meticulously crafted photos are arranged in collections that compare and contrast what different people eat around the world, what families consume on a weekly basis, on a daily basis, what individuals eat, people eating bugs, food production, etc...The extensive collections are powerful narratives.

Barbara Wien Wilma Lukatsch | artist | Mariana Castillo Deball | Globalization & art education | Scoop.it
John W. Momot's insight:

What has more value, an original, or a copy? Is an archaeological relic art? This artist asks intriguing questions of value and the nature of art.

 

What objects in contemporary art world will survive to become relics of future?

 

Mariana Castillo Deball  studies archaeology and its relation to contemporary art.

 

Works from an archaeological site all disappeared, now only plaster casts made in 1800’s survive.. Now do the casts themselves have value , or the casts produced from the original molds?

John W. Momot's insight:

I find this artist interesting. He works with a variety of media, sculpture, photography, and video, and exploits numerous media. Some of his installations are meticulous pieces mimicking vertebrae and natural forms, others are organic blobs. Several pieces have twirling ribbons trailing off of figures, as if from a dream unraveling.

India’s solution to its coming famine: Get people to eat insects | Globalization & art education | Scoop.it

John W. Momot's insight:

Anish Kapoor's Swirling Vortex of Black Water

Anish Kapoor's Swirling Vortex of Black Water | Globalization & art education | Scoop.it

Kapoor is known for his massive and mesmerizing works like Leviathan, the burgundy balloon made of PVC vinyl, and C-Curve, a giant stainless steel sculpture that flipped the world upside down.

John W. Momot's insight:

"In sculpture scale and skin are everything." I only partly agree, but Anish Kapoor weaves quite a tale, and his monumental works speak for themselves, on a grand scale. He is concerned with sculpture in an architectural sense, the way one enters a space, and how the space affects people.

as you may have noticed, things have changed around here. we're exploring new worlds, which some of you might have heard of, starting with biophilia, björk's exploration of music, nature and technology.
John W. Momot's insight:

Although Bjork is known as a musician, I have always been captivated by her forceful creativity, weaving sound scapes and visual imagery in her performances. She released an album-app “Biophelia”, which has also been released as a concert film. She has a notorious reputation for outlandish outfits that are part sculpture, part fashion, and always bizarre. I love her exploratory nature, weaving in and out of avant-garde and commercially viable works.
