Abstract [en]

Today visual culture is important in society but not in school. This article outlines some features of guidance in the authorities about how to support children’s aesthetic learning processes in relation to meaning construction and becoming. The purpose is to highlight the aesthetic learning processes from a semiotic approach to the field of knowledge in terms of how well the aesthetic learning processes are formulated in state support and policy documents. The methodology presents a pragmatic discourse analysis made on Government bills in Sweden. The question asked is: How do Government texts support the aesthetic language of education including integrative aesthetic hermeneutic skills? Educational function of qualification, segregated, extended and integrative modes of education, as well as likeness (iconic), relation (indexical) and conventional (symbolic) features of learning are important semiotic resources used as analytical tools in this study. The result shows that aesthetic learning processes and concepts related to it are phasing out. The conclusion is that it is of great importance to challenge a hermeneutic paradigm in support of teachers’ aesthetic education. Socialization into aesthetic self sign and experience of art activity as a language of education is lacking and thus qualification is not taken seriously.
