This paper originates from a university course at the Art Teacher program in Gothenburg, where we challenge norms through intersectional analyze and norm critical pedagogy in focusing on the processes where norms create and maintain hierarchical difference. For us this means that we challenge the students through proposing the question: what does it mean to be human today? Exposing them to contemporary art, postcolonial theory and interculturality in close encounter with the unknown. In workshops, artistic explorations, theoretical discussions and essay writing we force students to identify and analyze the connection between art and life. This is a conscious course of actions in trying to situate students in a painful position. A painful position is where the normal and safe begins to crack, when the protection of oneself becomes a hindrance, revealing one’s prejudices. In the painful position we are exposed to our self, forced to become aware of one’s actions of maintaining power structures and traditions. In order to convince students to come to rest in the painful position we try to create a climate for communication where different voices are allowed to speak and be heard, and various lived experiences can exist without judgement. This is a space for communication that is explorative, where contradictions are advocated, creating opportunities to rethink, evaluate and come to terms with strategies for negotiation.
