Philosophers and writers, academics and poets analyse the creative idioms of the XX century and contemporaneity

The relationship between literature, visual arts and thought is in continual mutation and growth. In the second seminar in this series we focus on a number of significant aspects of the definition and discussion of the relationships between word and image and the relative theorizing: from the birth of modern culture to a contemporaneity in which the interweaving of the diverse expressive and representative codes has become even more complex and problematic.

Starting out from the installation Anima by Mircea Cantor, a symbol of the decomposition of the institutionalised tradition a reproposal of materials used as instruments for redefining space, the speakers will be presenting diverse research experiences for a new redefinition of the everyday.
