The Desire Of The Medium
Most of Marc Boumeester’s thinking falls under affect theory, a philosophy of a new generation, which in its turn is fueled by Deleuzian scholarship. Boumeester formulates new and contemporary concepts that can be put into action in art and design education through an operational style called "intensive thinking". In the book, many interesting examples of educational programmes and works of art are accompanied by images relating to how this theoretical approach can be applied in art and design practice. Boumeester concludes that education in art and design is also about the design of education: what we learn and how we learn are inseparable.
