ABSTRACT

How do we engage students or participants of a learning programme in a gallery in discussing an artwork  in a critical and potentially emancipatory manner? This Learning Unit proposes to reflect on methods for the critical reading of images by engaging with pictures for learning situations that were created following Paulo Freire’s approach of “generative images”.

This Learning Unit builds on insights gained collectively with Andrea Thal, Lennyn Santacruz, Camilla Franz and others in a workshop in Vienna in October 2017, particularly the session focused on images in literacy resources based on Freire. A second workshop was on the visual material used by Freire in literacy campaigns and was held in Zurich in June 2018 with students of Arts Education and Independent guests. It was compiled by Nora Landkammer, Geneva/Zurich working group.
