Bio note

Nélio Conceição obtained his PhD in Philosophy (Aesthetics) from the Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities of Universidade Nova de Lisboa. His thesis focuses on the relation between philosophy and photography, paying special attention to the thought of Walter Benjamin, while exploring phenomenology and the work of Fernando Gil at the same time. He is currently working on a post-doc project on the relation between art, play and image, investigating the philosophical and artistic ramifications of Walter Benjamin’s work. He was a visiting scholar at PUC-São Paulo (2015) and Zentrum für Literatur- und Kulturforschung, Berlin (2016). In the IFILNOVA, he organized several seminars and conferences, mainly on aesthetics, and was a team member of the projects Morphology: Questions on Method and Language and Language and Forces.
