Abstract

In this review of Standing Items: critical pedagogies in South African art, design and architecture, edited by Brenden Gray, Shashi Cullinan Cook, Tariq Toffa and Amie Soudien, book reviewer Bridget Horner observes that for the scholarship of teaching and learning this book could serve as a source of possible teaching methods within the arts; however, this would negate policymakers, management of institutions, educators, discipline professionals and artists from viewing this book’s real potential, which is identifying and explaining the challenges faced within higher education, as well as opportunities for change – through critical pedagogy–  in a country that still holds unaddressed ‘standing items’ related to its colonial and apartheid past within the present neoliberal agenda.
