This publication documents the cicle of exhibitions Lesson 0 at Fundació Joan Miró and all the related activities beyong the walls of the exhibition. It includes texts and instalation views of The book of aesthetic education of the modern school.
Lesson 0 is a long-term, wide-ranging project that examines the current state of art education. It is developed with artists and education experts who focus on alternative educational methods, far removed from convention, in a search for different forms of transmission of knowledge.
Curated by Azotea (Ane Agirre and Juan Canela) and developed for the yearly program at Espai 13 - Fundació Joan Miró, Lesson 0 foregrounds proposals that relate to a kind of pedagogy that falls out of the expected in order to explore other forms of conveying knowledge. The program consisted of four exhibition projects signed by Priscila Fernandes, Rita Ponce de León, Anna Craycroft / Marc Vives (in collaboration with Rivet) and Eva Kotatkova. They explored, imagined, and tried different methods of learning and of establishing relations with the exhibition space. The four projects were set in motion as developments of Friction Pedagogies, a teaching support program conceived by Aida Sánchez de Serdio and Cristian Añó (Sinapsis) together with Rachel Fendler.

Back to the Sandbox addresses critical issues of the education system from an intriguing new perspective: essays by leading thinkers juxtaposed with art projects, intended for kindergarten through adult. The core issues include democracy in education, creativity, transdisciplinarity, neuroplasticity, thinking versus memorizing, science versus art and humanities. Both artists and scholars explore specific topics while guided by one framing question central to educators’ and students’ concerns today: What education do we need? The volume includes several lead essays and eighteen shorter texts from international scholars. Priscila Fernandes participates with a text about about the installation The Book of Aesthetic Education of the Modern School.
