The course analyses painting in the context of the various disciplines of contemporary art. In the final years of the century, painting has come to be configured more as a place than a praxis. Painting no longer only makes reference to what it contains, but presents itself as an interior space, as the realm of the eye, capable of adopting other disciplines in order to represent itself. From the work of Perejaume and of Gerhard Richter se analyse, among others aspects, the question of meaning in painting, su construction and ways of configuration, the structures of language, image and context, painting and photography, hybrid and non-hybrid.
