Tacit Knowledge


Tacit Knowledge provides the insight into the complex artistic and educational practices that are the first decade of the California Institute of the Arts (CalArts). There is a special focus on the conceptual and feminist strategies developed in John Baldessari's post studio class as well as Judy Chicago and Miriam Schapiro's Feminist Art Program, which was initiated in 1970 and brought to the newly founded art school in 1971. As Post Studio and feminist practices at CalArts are often characterised by the specific entanglement of cognitive and bodily forms of knowledge, the idea of ​​tacit knowledge, and thus learning through social and performative contexts of action, functions as an overarching principle in the book.
