Access Event Brochure

The modern anchors of spatial pedagogy that consolidated in the last century are under tremendous interrogation. The supremacy of orthography and cartography, the objectification of environment; the standardisation of inhabitation, and the dominance of linear factory processes in building are all being critically examined. Classical ideas of the field, the archive, the classroom, conceptual frameworks are also simultaneously getting reconfigured, where the distinctions between teacher and student, self and the other, theory and practice, product and process, and physical and digital space are blurring. In many ways, the monolithic modern educational institution for spatial pedagogy is reconfiguring into a fuzzy space, facilitating autonomous selves into becoming autodidacts. This is surely a liberating experience of post-institution, where pedagogy seems to be leaving the bureaucratic clutches of educational institutions. How does one then think of pedagogy and what should educational institutions transform into? 

Four conversations are organized as a part of this symposium to discuss the emerging contours and coordinates of spatial pedagogy. These conversations are held around experiments and research undertaken at SEA on drawing, environmental studies, habitat studies and emerging technologies.
