Gert Biesta’s Studia Generalia Lecture by Arts Equal / UniArts Helsinki

I had the honor to host professor Gert Biesta’s Studia Generalia lecture, in which he asked, what does it mean to 'try to be at home in the world' from the perspective of arts and education. What does it mean to be in the world? How to encounter resistance in the world? How to encounter people who are not like we are? How to live together well on a planet that is rapidly becoming exhausted and to avoid both self-destruction and world-destruction? And what is the purpose of education beyond learning? These are some of the fundamental questions that Gert Biesta has brought forward. I have been very inspired by his work and I warmly recommend to read more from him: gertbiesta.com
