Reading and discussion of texts. Projection and analysis of images. We will seek to creatively relate the ideas and images presented, focusing not only on pre-established content, but above all on a "reflective dynamics" during classes. Inspired by the methods of the plastic artist and art-educator Helio Rodrigues, we will seek to prioritize "occurrences" that are characteristic of each class.
