This paper examines some of the claims made for visual culture education in the context of globalisation. The history of art and design education in the United Kingdom is retraced to argue that new ideas are seldom accepted outright and that the present curriculum amounts to an array of practices lacking a coherent philosophy that have built up over time. Some reservations about the visual culture movement are expressed and suggestions are made for a broad, intercultural curriculum.
