The aim of the debate is to present different multidisciplinary ways of working in the field of secondary education. The project is designed for teachers in secondary education and high school students in a broad sense, i.e., not restricted to the field of art teaching, but trying to propose transversal work methods even if visual culture is the starting point. The emphasis will therefore be laid on aspects of popular culture and consumption, the construction of young people's identity, gender identities, the new hybrid artistic genres (with the video clip as paradigm), the urban environment as text, etc. The point is for the teachers to find work instruments which can be useful in different fields and serve as a zone of resistance in the face of the disappearance of the artistic disciplines in the new school programmes.
