Learning Scenarios for Social and Cultural Change

«Bildung» through Academic Teaching


Edited By Lara Rodríguez Sieweke

The anthology departs from the fundamental idea that the university is deeply connected to the ideal of «Bildung» and to democratic values.

Thus, the featured proposals on school and university education come from diverse research fields such as general education, media education, art and aesthetic education, philosophy, ethnology, sociology, performance art and gender.

We developed a portfolio that is called the artistic experimental process portfolio (in German, Künstlerisch-experimentelles Prozessportfolio or KEPP for short), which integrates several discourses and research fields (educational science, creativity research, aesthetics, art education, media studies). It deals with changing perspectives, and in this process, the students detect their personal interests and questions and get impulses for further reflection.


The cultural life of children and adolescents has become increasingly diverse and complex. Particularly in view of the immigration of refugees, the cultural prerequisites that bring learners into the classroom are extremely diverse. The demand for differentiation in learning groups is increasing, which means that children and young people are able contribute their skills as cultural experts to the...
