TRAPPED IN HISTORY: GALLERY EDUCATION, COLONIALITY, PATRIARCHY AND WHITE FEMININITY WITH CARMEN MÖRSCH
13 MAY 2019
The paper will sketch different historical and geographical situations in which white middleclass Anglophone women made use of art education as a space for visibility and for liberation from rigid moral regimes. From very early on art education and later Museum- and Gallery Education has been one of few fields of practice where white women, otherwise excluded from the bourgeois public realm in a patriarchal society, found a possibility to act and behave as legitimate citizens. The construction of inferior, classist and racialized Otherness thereby appears as a recurring discursive practice to justify this place in the public realm. 
Practices of "social mothering" and the connected construction of inferior racialized Otherness in Museum- and Galleryeducation continue until today. Concerning this continuity, the question will be raised: Is it at all possible to conceive it as an anti-discriminatory practice?
