The magazine Ars brings together works of art relevant to the debate, produced in academia or elsewhere. Arises from the fact that within the university such discussion tends to remain dammed in everyday classrooms or confined to asperities technical university discourse and, beyond, the subordinate themselves to the rarefied space of the publications of museums and galleries, when not to interest – and epidermal always provisional – Speaker cultural media. The publication aims to act thus in the situation of deep atomization of discussion about art in the country, and urges that the issues surrounding a school of art should not be restricted to the academic environment, but mobilizing the cultural debate beyond the university walls and interrogate their own perspectives of art in the contemporary context.
Proposes an expanded focus on addressing the visual arts, as, moreover, the demands made by the interdisciplinary nature of contemporary artistic production. Theoretical values in the area, while the contribution of older disciplines such as philosophy, aesthetics and art history, especially considering the low academic tradition of Brazilian art schools and need to improve theoretical positions with solid references intellectual tradition knowledge, even though it’s often confront or point out the limits of that tradition in the face of the challenges of the contemporary situation.
Ars has an interest in publishing, alongside the work of artists, critics / art historians and graduate students in the Department of Fine Arts, collaborations with artists, intellectuals and other professionals in the arts, in a context such as a magazine noncommercial favorable to experimentation and theoretical research specialist. The publication reflects the diversity of the areas of the Department of Visual Arts – Multimedia, painting, sculpture, printmaking, theory, history and criticism of art, in studies related to licenciatrura – and the multiplicity of experiences professionals quedro your teacher. Warmly, as well as a productive aspect, the possible lack of unity in the trends of thought that expressa.A expectation is that the field of ecumenical discussion, formulation of problems, can be conducive to a healthy extoversão of cultural positions, the greater fluidity in the exchange of ideas.
As academic initiative, born in art school opens, finally, the discussion of the problem of training, not just those students who wish to become artists, teachers, educators or theoretical, but also the formation of an experience creation and reflection, able to promote the formation of views emancipated in the globalized environment of contemporary culture.
