A publication by artist and teacher-researcher Marie Preston on the alternative pedagogies developed in France during the 1970s-1990s in "open" schools working on the question of the relationship between co-creation and co-education.
Marie Preston (born 1980, lives and works in Paris) is an artist and lecturer at the University of Paris 8 Vincennes-Saint-Denis. As an artist and teacher-researcher, Marie Preston sees her work as artistic research and ethnographic exploration, resulting in works that document experiences with those she meets. Her artistic process, based on the interaction of the knowledge and know-how of all involved, aims to create shared spaces. The resulting works—photographs, sculptures, performances, and films—range from the presentation of experiences through collective actions.
