Descolonise the gaze : defending artistic educacationas a strategy of knowledge / decolonising.

Subjects related to visual languages in general and the visual arts in particular are a marginalized group within schools and many other cultural institutions. One reason for this marginalisation is the lack ofsocial visibilityof the visual arts in relation to the generation of knowledge. At this conference, we will defend the need to implement an urgent paradigm shift in art education, where the bases that support the change are knowledge, the process and the idea of remixing.
