The Art of Youth Rebellion
Jaramillo, Nathalia E.
Curriculum Inquiry, v45 n1 p93-108 2015
In this essay, the author examines the art of rebellion in the context of the 2014 Venezuelan student uprising. Utilizing the lens of Latin American decolonial thought and examining the processes of developing popular power among youth, the author looks into the various ways that youth produce art to communicate and enforce the ideas and values that circumscribe their collective identities. It is necessary, the author argues, for educators to consider the historical, economic and political forces that shape youth's cultural production and to engage decolonial thought in art pedagogy.
