Abstract: 
In this paper ideas from Foucault's 'The Discourse of Language' and Freire's 'Pedagogy of the Oppressed' are discussed in order to form a basic menu for teaching about art at all levels. The implications of two suggestions are considered. We value art if we see that it has meaning for us in some way and if it relates to our experience of reality. The seemingly simple idea that art does not contain inherent value but that value and meaning are created around an art object opens up a complex of once invisible assumptions.
