Program What are “Modernity”, “Modernism”, “Post-Modernism”? Introduction to the History of Art organized by themes, centered on the concept of “Modern Art”, its “before” and its “after”; structured in two school semesters that can be attended separately. The art of the “Renaissance” will lead us to two pasts and two futures: one past, close by, with which there is a rupture (the “medieval”) and one past, remote, that legitimizes the changes (“Antiquity”). A future that builds a “classical” culture, as an extension of Renaissance utopias, and a future that inflects them and transforms them, until “classical” culture is destroyed. As we take questions of contemporary culture as a point of departure the path is not chronologically linear. The group of works under discussion is centered, exclusively, around painting, sculpture and architecture – and on a “European” - or, should we say, “Western” - cultural tradition, so as to more obviously include its “colonial” and “globalizing” extensions.

Program
Under the sign of Nietzsche, for whom the artistic path is opposed to that of knowledge, remaining on the surface of things, this course follows the question of resemblance/similitude and diversity/dissimilitude at the level of theory and at the level of art. Figuration and “disfiguration”, associated with different notions of Reason and Truth, where artistic manifestations either prefer the “goodwill of appearance” or strive to capture something that lies beyond it.

1- The Medieval moment and its Renaissance extensions. The image as indication of a presence. The corporeal dissimilarities related to the Sacred and their spreading on the margins of the main figure – the famous “fair deformities” of the unnatural bestiaries.
2- The Baroque in a conflicting moment between the ever more scientific Truth and the affirmation of the sacred through the image’s power. Romanticism, fraught with literary and artistic whims. Cadalso/Goya: illusion in dissimilitude. The insights that cannot be reached by the discursive intellect.
3- Modernity and the paradox of irony. From sophistry to the sophisticated dandy. The flâneur who privileges the transitory instead of the classical. From the mocking Light of pataphysics to Dada.
4- The recognition of the artifice. Confusion between original and copy – denial of the model and denial of the reproduction. The arbitrariness of signs and the undifferentiated mixture of real and false. The medium and the object, the space of the exhibition and that of publicity (Duchamp, Warhol, Broodthaers, Rodney Graham, Murakami…).

Program In the creative act, as in its reception, aesthetic experience tends to exceed the limits of perceptibility. Following in the path of the philosopher Gilles Deleuze’s transcendental empiricism, the course will approach this fact from the point of view of an aesthetics of the virtual, where the perception of forms can be amplified through the forces that trigger, populate and express them. Establishing connections with different artistic processes, we will explore concepts such as force, becoming, event, aïon, plane of immanence and the virtual.

Program A theoretical and dynamic reflection on the “death” of photography at the end of the 19th century and on the birth of modern 20th century photography. Departing from the photographic and patrimonial legacy of 19th century Portuguese photographer Carlos Relvas, we will contextualize the many instances of photography’s advent at the beginning of the 19th century until its symbolic “death” at the end of the same century. The birth of modern photography and the study of its most significant 20th century aesthetic currents will help us to draw and understand the contours of photography at the beginning of the 21st century..

Program Adventures in worlds never seen before, meetings with fantastic beings, reckless or idyllic places – real or imagined, they went on to colonize legends and myths since times immemorial, enchanting whoever read or listened to them. In this course we will account for the way in which illustrations that accompanied or simply produced such reports achieved prodigious digressions that immortalized them, ending up as autonomous fictions, popular and lively.

Program
“Letters that are not mailed cease to be missives for possible friends; they turn into archived things” (Peter Sloterdijk, 2009). Writings and testimonies of, and about, artists, in their varied forms – diaries, letters, lessons and reflections – allow us to explore the creative process, as well as the reflections of aesthetics and philosophy on this theme, by travelling in a non-linear way through generations, epochs and art movements (looking at instances of romanticism, modernity, modernism, postmodernism and contemporary art). Instead of becoming archival material, the writings become messages for their recipients and possible friends.

Program Rumours fly and reproduce in legends. They are associated to the goddess Fame and can cover truth with darkness just as they can make it drift towards the most wonderful fantasies. The course approaches the fanciful incursions in the field of science that originated legends and fabulous figurations, treated as prodigious discoveries that found an echo in illustrations. Considering the historical period that goes from Antiquity to the 21st Century we will account for various projects of virtuous devices in drawings and in prints that, like a virtual hypertext, made Art profit from the scientific falsities where curiosity won the battle over truth.
