Aesthetics project

Title: "Experiencing the city between art and philosophy"

PI: Nuno Fonseca

Members: Nélio Conceição, Maria Filomena Molder

Project description

This project will investigate the aesthetic experience of the city through an artistic perspective. It aims at studying contemporary artistic practices which reconfigure our experience of the city by using fragmentation as a core element, thus allowing us to uncover aesthetic, social and political elements usually overlooked in our daily interaction with urban space. While making full use of the academic environment (such as seminars and conferences) it also entails activities with various non-academic institutions that can benefit from this analysis and exploration, such as Lisbon’s Municipal Archive, Public Radio and Art Schools.

Entities involved:

  1. Arquivo Municipal de Lisboa - Videoteca
  2. Antena 2 – RTP (Public Radio station)
  3. ESAD – Caldas da Rainha
  4. FBAUL

Concluded research [and dissemination] activities (as of December 2017)

Application for national funding (FCT R&D Project “Fragmentation and Reconfiguration: Experiencing the city between art and philosophy”) (PI: Maria Filomena Molder, co-PI: Nélio Conceição).

  • Preparation of the radio show “Ruas de Sentido Único”
