    Abstract

    In infant schooling at the beginning of the twentieth century, physical education was similar to the disciplinary means and methods of military indoctrination. The picture press at the time printed images which show us today the mark of school militarisation which is open to analysis from a dialectical critical view and the "visual turn". From these two images, published in the weekly La Hormiga de Oro of Barcelona, the (re)productive forms of violence that underlie physical education become evident and the disciplinary devices (knowledge/power techniques) acting in the collective subconscious of the time for the construction of elements of national cohesion are revealed.
