The seminar deals with the ideas and tasks of aesthetic and cultural education. The breakdown of educational theories in the context of their development and explanations of terms are at the centre of the seminar. We will develop the basics of this overview on the basis of theories of education theory and cultural studies, which will be read, analysed and discussed in the context of education. The seminar will also discuss the tasks of Arts Education on a very practical basis. A look at examples of cultural education within society (e.g. Rhythm is it, Berlin 2003) will provide information about the opportunities for, goals of and criticism of cultural education.

The examples will be concretised through cooperation with the Institute for Music and Musicology within the framework of the project "Diversity Dialogues in Studies and Teaching" in the summer semester 2012.
