Programmes

Note: In light of the covid pandemic and the unpredictability of its evolution, the programmes for the 2020/21 academic year have undergone format adaptations to on-line or on-premise learning (or a mixture of both in exceptional cases), Ar.Co’s priority being whenever possible on-premise. The schedules here announced therefore mention the format in which, except in case of absolute impossibility, the subject in question will be taught. Ar.Co will rigorously follow and implement all DGS guidelines, including the use of masks, distancing and hygiene.

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.
