Call for Papers: Art and Education

The relationship between art and education has a long history during which it has acquired various forms that, far from following each other in a linear sequence, coexist and hybridize.

Furthermore, there have also been artistic projects undertaken in cooperation with certain groups, i...

Towards the Third Life

Humans also developed a wide range of artefacts, machines, entities that are quickly becoming more and more powerful, complex, autonomous, and independent.
