The Hermeneutics of Art in Education
The value and contribution of artistic education to the school of hermeneutics
The hermeneutics of art belongs both to the field of the humanities and to that of education. It stands out for its distinctive epistemic configuration and its structure.
It has taken shape during the last decade along with comparative epistemic readings, and in these years it has been oriented towards a direction of categories belonging to the historical-artistic discipline (in particular it moves from a comparison focused on modern and contemporary art, highlighting the differences and elements of continuity), and education.
It represents an objective analysis of the thresholds of identity that determine artistic forms and those of expression (centuries, places, generations, groups, artists, poetic works), which allow not only the reinterpretation of the primary codes (those that can be defined as ” alphabet “or” the genetic code “of culture), but to lay the foundations of a new critical horizon.
Within the framework of education and learning, this has reached a new stage, in which the pedagogical and didactic value is evident, both in schools from an early age, to university where it is most evident, and adult education. This theme represents the right place for development and critical reflections on the interpretation of artistic-educational variables.
