Summary Teaching Visual Culture: Curriculum, Aesthetics and the Social Life of Art, Kerry Freedman (2003) New York: Teachers College Press & Reston: National Art Education Association, xiv + 187 pp., ISBN 0-8077-4372-0 (hbk £29.95)

This critical review has two principal goals. First of all, it will briefly summarize how Kerry Freedman’s ambitious eight-chapter monograph initially sets in train a number of key themes, all of which are aimed at enlarging if not transforming visual arts practice. Secondly, it will critically disclose a small set of pivotal assumptions which call any uncritical support for visual culture as the panacea for arts education into question. More particularly, we shall conclude, the logical underpinnings of Teaching Visual Culture are open to serious doubt in at least two respects.
