“To make the classroom a perpetual forum for political and social issues…is wrong; and to see aesthetics as sociology is grossly misleading.”*
This project is an investigation of the subject of typography in the context of pedagogy and education. The aim is to demonstrate tendencies within contemporary teaching of typography in Sweden, in order to bring about a debate on what a school of typography is and what it could be. What teaching would be relevant in relation to history and to technical developments? How are professional stererotypes repeated?
To what extent is typography discussed within a political context? How can education promote subject development rather than subject management?
