does art go after the pandemic?

ILA professors project aesthetic directions and the spread of artistic production after social isolation

Surrealistic photographs inspired by isolation. Watercolors of health professionals and hospital environments. Collages that alert you to the importance of staying at home. Tales of horror that underline the anxieties of the quarantine. The coronavirus pandemic has already changed the way of looking at many aspects of daily life, especially the relationship with culture. But what direction will art take here? Based on historical data and the transformations already underway, FURG professors recall how artists painted pandemics over time - and project a possible reinvention of artistic making for the next to come.

the black plague to the Spanish flu, great names in plastic arts expressed the desire to reproduce the reality of their time on the screen. In Covid-19 times, the coordinator of the Visual Arts course at the Institute of Letters and Arts (ILA) at FURG, Fabiane Pianowski, has observed in the arts, especially through Instagram, a closer look at the daily life, the body, about yourself. "I see this because of a growth in 'domestic' performances shared on the network. But this is certainly just one aspect of the moment," says the professor. "I believe that it is not possible to project anything yet (for the foreseeable future), we are still beginning to understand and accept this situation in order to be able to build what will come next", he adds.

For professor and art curator Munir Klamt, humans are "very unskilled" in predicting future events. According to him, the constitution, forces and "supposed effectiveness" of these predictions are, in themselves, wrong. "The sum of past experiences and hidden desires and fears are the stuff of utopias, not of the future; there is a clear difference between how we would like the future to be (or how we fear it will be) and how it really will be. The essential question it’s like discerning what we’re unable to see. Some authors are dedicated to researching precisely the history of predictions and how well they’re right, and it’s amazing how ineffective they are, regardless of whether they’re the top experts in their respective fields. it wasn’t foreseen, nor was the potential of the steam engine - and these are just some examples that the future is always otherness ", he analyzes.

There are those who foresee a deconstruction of the aesthetic standards for an of the senses, as is the case of Professor Janice Appel. "This provides for the updating of public art in cities, their historic monuments - currently being destroyed in France, England and the United States, as they do not represent society revolted by the racist and colonialist values ​​that literally supported these statues," she defends. "In this interim pandemic, it became essential, both for public art and for the art projects developed at FURG, the ability to transform and adapt the projects for a broader look at the surroundings and their constant new forms of urban expression, such as as in the changes after the pandemic event caused by Covid-19 ", completes the teacher.

In addition to the effects that the pandemic is expected to have on aesthetics, significant changes in the market are also expected. "The logic of museums, mediations, the legacy that had been building relational art will be modified, as well as the contact areas of human areas with art", compares professor Janice. "I don't mean to say that individualism and distance will come around, or that virtual and distance arts will be the protagonists of language - even because we have lived in cybernetic times for a long time. But I do believe that there will be a reconnection of art with the occupied place, both individual and social collective, the house, the garden, the landscape, the family, to the possible social reflections that can connect us with what we have below our feet and that sustain us - which is our belonging to the spaces we build and occupy, our ancestry, our knowledge and even our dreams ", he adds. Professor Klamt agrees that in visual arts, the exhibition issue is fundamental, that is, the real contact with the work, and that there are alternatives to rethink the exhibition space with sanitary safety rules. "In most spaces, the public flow, with the exception of vernissages, is continuous and homeopathic. Generalist migrations to online are hurried and clumsy solutions, but they help us, in a practical and constituted way by trial and error, to reflect and experimenting with ways and means, new technologies, which will be relevant to think about the diffusion of content in visual arts in the future ", he justifies.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, the teacher has developed, in partnership with Laura Cattani and Juliana Proenço, a platform for sharing creative processes and reflections on contemporary art, uniting artists and researchers. Looking for a language that is specific to social media, it was created the Archipelago project. The proposal aims to serve as a space for discussions, stimulating creation and reflection, and the dissemination of contemporary art, especially the perspective of artists and theorists coming and / or isolated in the south of the country. .

In relation to artistic making, Professor Klamt compares the psychic work of understanding and internalizing what is happening to a grieving process. "Each person has their own time to process traumas, and pressing for that to happen is not correct. The same goes for art. Our perception is being mediated at a distance, so that we still don't fully understand, and obeying interests that This equation generates a sensitivity that we are still trying to discern and this, generating sensibilities not yet verbalized, giving them concreteness, is the nature of art ", he concludes.

Academic production

ILA professors and technicians have developed actions during the pandemic to bring art closer to the community. There was the distribution of food and masks, as well as actions galleries that are momentarily virtual, in addition to exhibitions and calls that are taking place on social media platforms.

And the artistic production of the academic community in recent months has attracted the attention of tutors. Professor Janice lists some highlights. "The student Fernando Rocha develops a research in affective cartographies, and carried out a questionnaire during the pandemic, the residents of Rio Grande do Sul have to report which landscapes reveal their memories before the pandemic. Albert Teixeira is developing a blog for his course conclusion work. interactive that has the city as a setting, and that relates the criminal investigative method to the questions that art brought him during the academy. Petra Barcelos is developing a series of intimate drawings that reveal his domestic daily life during the pandemic in living with cats and These examples come the last year of the Visual Arts course at ILA, so they bring important reflections on the current times as they have a lot of experience in these four years of their course, now coined at the end, with the advent of a pandemic ", points out.

Entangled Glances

Professor Fabiane Pianowski is also in charge of the cultural project Miradas Enredadas / Networking Glances 2020 - Pandemia / Pandemic. The call for e-mail art on the perception of the pandemic by teachers, artists and researchers different parts of the world will result in the creation of an international collective exhibition on social networks.

"It was great to be able to resume the project this year. The quarantine led me to rescue this project that worked very well in previous editions, and that had everything to work in this period, since anything can happen virtually," she explains. Thus, the disclosure takes place via social networks, WhatsApp, e-mail and web page, the registration can be done on Google Forms, the sending of works by e-mail, and the publication of the receipts will take place on the networks, Google Maps and, in the future , e-catalog. "An exhibition is planned in cultural spaces; we do not know when this will be possible again, we hope that soon. In the meantime, we continue to sail through this great sea called the internet", says the coordinator of the Visual Arts course at FURG.
