Revisiting Black Mountain
Cross-Disciplinary Experiments and Their Potential for Democratization

The cross-disciplinary experiments and self-empowering strategies imagined in the Black Mountain College just might be urgently needed in times of so-called Post-Democracy and Post-Facts, which imply a reformulation of the public sphere. Is there a potential in the cultural sphere that might offer a space for democratization? Does the impact of new working methods linked to digital technology drive further interconnections and resources that create other public spheres? Might this be a catalyst for new patterns of a communal exchange? And what does this mean for the teaching and learning of arts and design, for the structures, formats, and content of learning/teaching, for an institution?
This issue asked these questions in relation to anti-democratic tendencies in many countries worldwide. How can education still hold up democratic values, while at the same time presumably measuring its success by careers in the market?
