Abstract

Art’s relationship with education could be read through action, discipline, instrument, and autonomy. Reading this through the aesthetics of Baumgarten, Goethe and Kant, this paper presents art, ethics and education through the situatedness and contingency of art education, emerging as a chiasmic affair that has four scenarios characterized by place, meaning, use, and freedom, as they correspond to four axioms: (1) In education, art’s place is found beyond the school; (2) In education, art’s meaning might well be non-sense; (3) Education’s use reveals art’s ethics of uselessness; and (4) Freedom warrants art and education’s mutual autonomy.
