Voices: Jan Jagodzinski
Gallery 400 Lecture Room
400 South Peoria Street
Educator and artist Jan Jagodzinski s (born 1948) work strives to re-imagine educational models in the face of ever-proliferating technological interfaces in order to find a new foundation for visual arts education. Investigating Lacanian psychoanalysis, feminism, and linguistics, among other practices, he focuses on the effect of these tools upon aesthetics, gender, and the fantasy life of children as reflected in education pedagogy.
He is a professor in the Department of Secondary Education at University of Alberta. He is involved with the Association for Psychoanalysis of Culture and Society and the Journal of Lacanian Studies and is editor of the Journal of Social Theory in Art Education.
