Imperial Cryptonomy: Colonial Specters And Portuguese Exceptionalism In Isabela Figueiredo's "Caderno De Memórias Coloniais", Daniel F. Silva Aug 2017

Imperial Cryptonomy: Colonial Specters And Portuguese Exceptionalism In Isabela Figueiredo's "Caderno De Memórias Coloniais", Daniel F. Silva

Portuguese Cultural Studies

This essay proposes a reading of Isabela Figueiredo’s Caderno de Memórias Coloniais, namely its relation to Portugal’s contemporary exceptionalist narrative concerning its imperial past, part of what Miguel Vale de Almeida has called “right-wing multiculturalism.” As Figueiredo has stated in interviews, her memoires aim to confront and interrupt how Portuguese colonialism is signified in the postcolonial metropolis. Through the theoretical frameworks of cryptonomy and spectrality, I aim to map Figueiredo’s political project as the disentangling of the various layers of imperial narrativization regarding race, gender, class, and metropolitan privilege.

Antígona De António Pedro (1954): O Alcance Social E Estético De Uma Peça, Inês Alves Mendes Aug 2014

Antígona De António Pedro (1954): O Alcance Social E Estético De Uma Peça, Inês Alves Mendes

Portuguese Cultural Studies

Abstract: Antígona: Glosa nova da tragédia de Sófocles was a play written and directed by António Pedro for the second public performance of Teatro Experimental do Porto, in 1954. This play bears witness to the way in which Pedro engaged with the social realities of his time. Therefore, this paper examines how aesthetic and social features come together, in order to create an innovative adaptation of a classical theme in the context of the Portuguese 1950s. Through an analysis of the dialogue between this play and the work of Pirandello, Anouilh and the Brechtian precepts on classical adaptations, I intend ...

Apontamentos Para Uma Cartografia Do Pensamento Pedagógico De António Pedro -- Para Uma Arquitectura Do Teatro De Amadores, Teresa André

Portuguese Cultural Studies

Abstract: António Pedro, the avejão, stood out in the Portuguese cultural landscape as one of the introducers of artistic and aesthetic concerns that were surfacing at the time in Europe. Over a period of several decades, he traced a consistent and disciplined path, breaking with prevailing ideologies and reacting against imposed artistic trends. He revealed the desire for aesthetic growth and the ambition of achieving harmony with cosmic plurality, as well as contributing to awakening other artistic creators to need for change. This article intends to illustrate the intense relationship of this artist with the various arts, and more specifically ...

Estratégias De Deformação E Transformação Em Apenas Uma Narrativa, Bruno Silva Rodrigues Aug 2014

Estratégias De Deformação E Transformação Em Apenas Uma Narrativa, Bruno Silva Rodrigues

Portuguese Cultural Studies

Abstract: Apenas uma narrativa uses several core principles of Surrealism to construct a circular journey between reality and dream. Above all, there is an intention in this work to praise the unconscious. This is part of a general attempt by twentieth century artists to propose an alternative to the prevailing rational and logical mode. In the case of Apenas uma narrativa, this is not only achieved by the surrealist matrix, but also through the semiotics of the illustrations and the use of the Freudian concept of the uncanny. The various experimental journeys carried out by the protagonist of the story ...


Da Dor -- Um Percurso Vital (A Propósito Do Poema Inédito De António Pedro, "Annuaire Confidentiel"), Isabel Ponce De Leão Aug 2014

Da Dor -- Um Percurso Vital (A Propósito Do Poema Inédito De António Pedro, "Annuaire Confidentiel"), Isabel Ponce De Leão

Portuguese Cultural Studies

Abstract: The unpublished poem “Annuaire Confidentiel” (undated) by António Pedro, which belongs to the estate of the Belgian surrealist E. L. T. Mesens, calls for a reflection on the author’s literary and pictorial production. Without denying surrealism, what it draws on is, above all, abjectionism, tracing a vital circuit which aproximates art and life. On the other hand, on the path towards dimensionism, of which the author was one of the pioneers, this poem represents a visuality that relates it to the pictorial arts in general and “Le crachat embelli” (1934) in particular. I propose to consider here these ...


A Tensão Para O Inanimado Ou A Emergência Da Morte Na Vida Nas Mulheres-Árvore De António Pedro, Michele Rocha Aug 2014

A Tensão Para O Inanimado Ou A Emergência Da Morte Na Vida Nas Mulheres-Árvore De António Pedro, Michele Rocha

Portuguese Cultural Studies

Abstract: António Pedro, considered a pioneer of the Portuguese surrealist movement, stands by the assertion of a plastic thinking where word and image converge. In the work of this author, the feminine, in its multiple meanings and relations, emerges as a main theme, taking on a diversity of representations and significances. In this article, an analysis of the connections between plastic and literary works confirms a series of constant images that converge towards a representation of the feminine as a privileged object of destructive impulses. The study of women-trees present in the pictorial work of António Pedro, when considered alongside ...


António Pedro Pintor, José-Augusto França Aug 2014

António Pedro Pintor, José-Augusto França

Portuguese Cultural Studies

Abstract: António Pedro became interested, from fairly early on, in visual and mixed media expression, alongside literature and theatre. From the mid 1930s onwards, he produced a significant number of works (sketches, dimensional poems, invented objects, paintings, sculptures, ceramics) that were to have a significant impact on the artistic context in Portugal throughout the 1930s and 1940s. This article provides an overview of some of his most emblematic paintings, influenced to varying degrees by Surrealism or some aspects of it, and often characterized by subversive and oniric compositions. As such, it sheds light on the extent to which the pictorial ...
