“I don’t think art can be taught. I really don’t,” states Baldessari in an interview students of the Städelschule made with him in connection with his recent exhibition at the Portikus in Fankfurt. That is a tough statement to print in a book with the title Teaching Art.

This is a book about the Städelschule today and about some of the activities through which our students get exposed to art and to the theories of art as well as to practicing artists from around the world. All the contributors to this book have been linked to our school, either as faculty or as guests for workshops and seminars. The contributors include Thomas Bayrle, Johan Bettum, Daniel Birnbaum, Okwui Enwezor, Isabelle Graw, Michael Krebber, Pamela M. Lee, Niklas Maak, Vanessa Joan Müller, Tobias Rehberger, Willem de Rooij, Simon Starling, Wolfgang Tillmans, Jan Verwoert, Mark Wigley and many more.

Wolfgang Tillmans’s contribution is a series of photographs portraying the daily life in the school.
