Catalogue data

AbstractThroughout the course, I will illustrate, in an interdisciplinary perspective, how the representation of the body interprets the relevant perceptual and expressive transformations in the artistic and poetic tradition of the 19th century.
ObjectiveThe starting point will be the beginning of the century, with the change of the scientific and philosophic horizon, which puts the absolute conception of Time and Space into crisis, opening up to the discovery of the relative, the simultaneous, and the rupture of the linear perspective, witch effects the "Me" as place of identity and integrity. These are the subjects
of 19th century perception phenomenology, by Husserl and Merleau-Ponty, followed by the
reflections on the "body" that intensify and multiply by reaching the 20th century.
