Images: painting as representation

The seminar seeks to examine the concept of representation and image, and establish the relations between them, exploring the currently evanescent limits of painting as a discipline.

The concept of image should be understood here in its broadest sense, and establish the links between the classic genres of painting (traditionally, the image per se) and the relationship with photography, together with the influence of photography and the cinema on contemporary conceptions of painting.

There is also a need to consider the influence of the new technologies, and in consequence, of the virtual image, which is rapidly propagating a different conception of reality. At the same time, the seminar will look at how the psychology of the image has changed, and the change in its reception and reading by the spectator over the course of the 20th century
