Myths, legends and traditional stories are forms of things “seen”, even when never actually witnessed. They are rooted in the depths of the unconscious and of the tímeless memory kept in dreams. To illustrate means to bring something to light and is also a means to render visible what the letter kills.
A thread connects the most ancient initiatory evocations of entering adult life: the meaning of the nymphs and the wrath they provoque (as Roberto Calasso so aptly described), the enchantment and whirlwind that from Greco-Latin Antiquity nymphs moves on to the inspiring muses of artists, the sleep/dream of sleeping beauties, the meeting between boys, girls and animals, the metamorphosis that surface in young girls who are also animal.

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.

Going back to the thread of myths and to the dream that unleashes fantasy events, whether in legends or in the narratives of the oldest children’s stories, we will now follow the theoretical and artistic clues that sustain them. In accordance with platonic theory, imagination is similar to fantasy, like a ghost, a simulacrum or a premonition that emerges in vision. Following legends, between Eros and Thanatos, the dream allows the spirit to wander through “blind visions”, or nightmares, accompanying corporeal metamorphosis, when waking life and reason cease to pay attention.
We will follow these mutations thoughout age old stories and images, from the dormants in mountains and caves, or sleeping beauties, to the nocturnal digressions of Little Nemo, until they start to move in Comic strips or in cinema.

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.

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 em
piricism, 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. From the work that Deleuze dedicated to Bergson (Le Bergsonisme, 1966), we intend to study the theme of duration, establishing connections with the philosophical thought of Bergson and other authors and with different artistic processes, which sustain the meaning that passes through it.

“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.
