In today's knowledge society, in which occupational fields are constantly changing, it is increasingly necessary to prepare students to deal creatively with their knowledge, to take new productive paths and to constantly develop professionally. Learners need an appropriate attitude in order to be able to tackle things, to have positive (learning) experiences and to develop not only cognitively but also physically, emotionally and socially.

Cultural schools support this to a great extent. They deliberately distance themselves from a one-sided understanding of school, which focuses only on the cognitive dimension of the learning process or the orientation towards the economic needs of society.

Teachers and learners should be given comprehensive opportunities to make aesthetic experiences, whereby all participants are addressed and "engaged" in their personality, i.e. they learn with high self-efficacy conviction and motivation. The learning processes thus have a more sustainable effect.

The research project 'Kulturschule Baden-Württemberg' starts here and examines teaching in cultural schools. The aim is to develop a cultural-aesthetic methodology and didactics that helps all schools to approach cultural-aesthetic teaching-learning processes in artistic and non-artistic subjects.

Research period is 2021-2023. The project is funded by the Karl Schlecht Foundation, Stiftung Mercator and the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sport, Baden-Württemberg.
