“Top-Bottom Deconstruction”: A Global Space for Art Education in Rural Society


Let us look at globalization as a trigger for the current creative arts education movement. Not only in big cities but the stretching development of arts education can also be seen in small towns and rural communities. Interestingly, globalization is not seen as an essential foothold in developing art education. Therefore, this research wants to conduct a discourse on how the global space of art education in rural communities is created, termed "top-down deconstruction". This research has the nuances of a narrative literature review by taking Derrida's deconstruction concept as a basis for discussing the context of "global space", which has only been seen from one side so far. The study results show that globalization creates an attitude of adaptation and resilience in rural communities to technology as one of the elements of modern education. Globalization also constructs art in public spaces as a democratic alternative for rural communities. Furthermore, the development of art education in rural communities is also accommodated by rural art, which artists and collectives are now loving as their creative space in collaboration with the community. Thus, the global space created can become the central axis, which forms the cultural identity of the local community and creates an alternative space for modern art education.
