School Noise between Fences and Walls: what is free in school?
Abstract: Analysing the experience of an image and sound project developed in a public school in the north zone of Rio de Janeiro, this study features reflections on the processes of signification of freedom in school. During the project, students were invited to produce images and sounds related to the theme being free in school. The material produced afforded relevant elements for an analysis of the contribution of youngsters to significations that go beyond a view of school composed merely of students and masters explicators, a term used by Jacques Rancière to analyse the role of teachers. Based on the images made by those students, the study proposes interpretations of schools as spacetimes of conversations.
