A short summary of my master exams » The art of education and Bildung»
In this thesis I will discuss art and culture, as presented to children in an educational perspective through the Norwegian school system. Art and education is an area of focus for national culture politics. Through this project all children in Norway will receive an offer to study different areas of art and culture, as music, dance, theatre, film, literature and other art forms. In this connection I will look at which educational subjects and questions that will arise. There will also be a focus on what happens when the educational system, and the art and culture institutions meet. This is an empirical thesis where I look at the pupils’ reactions in an educational perspective, connected to the open and abstract art expressions.
