Faculty Alexandra Eguiluz and her Teaching to Transgress Toolbox collective discussed the subject of “Questioning the Notion of Neutrality” in art school as part of the Radical Inclusivity Symposium on May 3rd, 2021.
Alexandra Eguiluz is a Peruvian artist and educator based in Paris since 2013. She is attracted by the search for alternative ways of education that challenge the rigid systems in which we are often involved. As part of her research, she spent six months teaching in the mountains of Peru in the institute Pukllasunchis. In this institution, alternative education where experience and context are important pedagogical tools is key. To pursue this quest further, she is currently part of Teaching to Transgress Toolbox.
Teaching to Transgress Toolbox is a no-credit, collective research and study programme on critical pedagogy using artistic tools based on peer-learning and collective research. It aims to find and share ideas for teaching in progressive, decolonial/intersectional feminist/anti-discriminatory ways.
Their topic “Questioning the Notion of Neutrality”, which they presented at the Radical Inclusivity Symposium, is researched through the conducting, recording and editing of video-interviews, as well as by reading/watching other materials that revolve around the topic.
