Volume 2 in the Over_Flowing Horizons series: A UERJ-PPGArtes collection on Art and Contemporary Culture.
Book 2,Between Arts, presents historical and visual essays centering on investigations that navigate between art and its poetics, art history and theory. They are works by researchers in the “Art, Image and Writing” research line of the program, which aims to develop and affirm new art writing practices by overcoming any dichotomies between expression and reflection, theorizing/historicizing and art making itself. These investigative practices of historic and poetic concepts are devoted to the power of the image and of the body, their constitution, and political uses in interactions with experience.
The Over_Flowing Horizons series, organized by Luciana Lyra and Paloma Carvalho Santos, brings together digital volumes related to the five lines of research in the PPGArtes-UERJ program, prioritizing focus on “Art and Contemporary Culture” and the means of resistance for art research in the current scenario of the pandemic, post-pandemic and dismantle policies in Brazilian universities. The series approaches contemporaneity through aesthetic practices, new ways of existing and feeling which engender alternative forms of visibility, particularly
in this intense period of de structuring of the means of art making and reflecting upon this important field of action. Readers interested in art, its field and political dimension are the target audience of this collection.
