One of main goals of the Postgraduate Program in Visual Arts of UFPel is developing research in the field of visual poetics and art teaching. Projects in the Program have two principal lines of research, involving 12 researchers with ample experience in their areas.
The Program receives research projects in Visual Arts, understanding art as an activity capable of producing critical reflection and productions which favor the diverse languages of contemporary art.
It deals with critic reflection about art production in a contemporary context, perceiving this context as a space-time which gives priority to an experience approximating the object and thought of whom conceived it.
The expansion of investigation is favored through the diversity of the artistic object, which is able, in its hybrid nature, to branch out in order to become a phenomenon which makes theoretical, historic, critic, educational, discursive, sociocultural and semiotic approaches possible, as well as others which arise during the educational process.
