Academic Journal
The article discusses art and art history and the changes that the disciplines have undergone, particularly how the New Zealand art academy responded to these changes by rethinking its own knowledge. Changes in New Zealand's educational laws allowed artists and teachers in the country to implement educational changes in the studio art and art history disciplines. The article also considers how the theory and practice of studio art and art history can overlap more in university education and how this would be a large change in the respective disciplines. Other topics include philosophers like Martin Heidegger and Jacques Derrida, deconstruction, and subjectivity.
