The objective of this seminar is to provide an in depth consideration of the thesis of "Art and Utopia: Limited Action," an exhibition that analyzes the effects of Stephane Mallarme's (1842-1898) poetic on modern art, beginning in the first decade of the twentieth century to the end of the 1970s. Mallarme's 1897 essay "Limited Action" (L'action restreinte) serves as the basis for a possible history of modern art and its relation to language and its dispersion. The exhibition considers key moments of this history through a selection of more than 900 works, which go beyond the classification between poetry and the visual arts, including film, photography, theatre, dance and music.
