Nora Landkamer, is a museum and gallery educator and researcher. Her research and practice focuses on interrogations of coloniality and racism in contexts of art, museum and gallery education. She has co-directed the Institute for Arts Education at Zurich University of the Arts ZhdK. From 2016 to 2019, she was a principal investigator in TRACES – Transmitting Contentious Cultural Heritages with the Arts, researching learning on difficult heritage. Her PhD (University of Applied Arts Vienna) focused on coloniality and education in ethnographic museums. She has been teaching curatorial studies and art education in Zurich and Vienna, and is currently professor ad interim for arts education at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich. She is active in the international network Another Roadmap for Arts Education. The contibution of her previous research to this project is twofold: On the one hand, her research has focused on critical pedagogical engagements with coloniality. She worked on post- and decolonial approaches to pedagogy with a focus on Latin American theories, on learning and contentious heritage, and on analysing and developing pedagogical practices that interrogate coloniality in museums and heritage sites (a.o. Discourse analysis of mediation approaches in ethnographic museums, PhD project; Development and Research of pedagogical practices and tools in the framework of TRACES). On the other hand, her contribution is on a methodological level, through her experience in practice-based and action research methodologies in arts and museum education. Through projects like Kunstvermittlung in Transformation (SNF DORE 2009-10), TRACES (Horizon 2020, 2016-19) or Making Democracy (Sparkling Science, 2017-2019)she has longstanding experience in devising and accompanying the spiral movements of action research between pedagogical practice, documentation, analysis, theory building and developing new actions.
