SERAPHIM, Robineia da Costa  and  MASCIA, Márcia Aparecida Amador. The discontent in the classroom as a creative impulse. Rev. Subj. [online]. 2015, vol.15, n.1, pp. 95-104. ISSN 2359-0769.

This work is part of a study undertaken between the years of 2010 and 2011 in a program of Master's in Education. The present work discusses the discontent in relationships that occur inside the classrooms today, due to the lack of limits of teenagers. In this article, we present an analysis of a student at age 15, female, which partially answers the demands of school while a fully desiring subject. The material collected for analysis consisted of reports from the artistic creative process and its final product, the object of art done by teenagers. Our research has as framework the studies of Salles on the processes of artistic creation and some psychoanalytic insights about new forms of subjectivity proposed by Birman and Forbes, and finally, the French Discourse Analysis of Pêcheux who understands the discourse as a knitting composed by history, ideology and the unconscious. As a result, we found a change of psychic functioning of nowadays students in relation to the students of the modern era. This change relates to a weakening of desiring attitude toward school and its organization as a whole. In other words, teens are no longer seeing the school as an object of desire. We are facing an ambivalence of the student subject, a subject who, nowadays, is unable to make himself/herself as fully desiring the way the school still craves in contemporaneity.

Keywords : education; discontent; art; discourse analysis; desiring subject.
