AMI and Ed. (artists’ moving image and education) is a doctoral education action research project which challenges the emphasis placed by mainstream art educators in England upon modernist canonical approaches to pedagogy. The research compares pedagogies in England and Australia regarding the provision made for modelling 21st century moving image art practices. The qualitative data, recorded by the use of semi-structured interviews and surveys, highlights an opportunity for teachers and learners to contradict the systemic art-market values of modernist production, and to introduce digital video as a means of artistic and democratic communication. In terms of producing an effect, the research has stimulated the production of an online learning resource.
