This course unit introduces four European core aesthetic tendencies, which are to be studied crosswise to the different arts and contextualized in the European territory. The four core tendencies are the following:
1. Romanticism: the form of the fragment; the paradox perception / irony; memory and ruin.
2. Realism: the form of the novel; the lanscape perception / figure; science and history.
3. Modernismo: crisis and search of form; the threshold perception / language; caos, pathos and spirituality;
4. Post-modernism: the spaying of forms; the game perception / simulacrum; deconstruction and intertextuality.
Continuous assessment is privileged: 2 digital written documents (e-folios) during the semester (40%) and a final digital test, Global e-folio (e-folio G) at the end of the semester (60%). In due time, students can alternatively choose to perform one final exam (100%).
