Högskolan Väst


Kliniska lärandecentrum (KLC) at Högskolan Väst (Clinical Center for Learning "freely translated") has taken a new approach were norm-critical pedagogy is used as a tool to make the students aware and reflect about norms. An inclusive bench and/or table was created by Pamela Lindgren as a linking artefact to art work in shape of photography by Elisabeth Ohlson Wallin. The artefact combined with the photos aim to probe or lead visitors, students and staff to reflect about norms. Professor Elisabeth Dahlborg is leading the work together with Assistant Professor Ina Berndtsson. The project was funded by Vinnova.

Inspirerad av tidigare verk genom historien vilka anspelar på olika metaforer för både magi och andra världar eller olika sätt att betrakta verkligheten. - Pamela Lindgren
