‘As palavras com que nos cosemos...’ was designed by the 'Art, History and Heritage' group and aims at addressing language as an element that both unites and separates, cross-cutting our thematic barriers in different ways. It intends to think about a common artistic and architectural lexicon that bridges Portuguese-speaking geographical and temporal spaces. As such, it is also intended to contribute to CHAM's strategic project regarding the Frontiers subject, by reflecting on the issue of language as a defining instrument, or not, of frontiers, either spatial, cultural or social.
Formally startied in September 2016, the project was organised in terms of 'scales', assigned to sub-groups headed by the following researchers, in charge of their respective coordination and boosting:
Urban scale – Sandra MG Pinto
Architecture scale – Nuno Senos
Object scale– Maria João Pacheco Ferreira
Technological scale– Ana Claro
The members of the research group were assigned to the scales according to their fields of work. Each scale is self-organised and works according to the rhythm established by the group members. Nonetheless, a calendar of activities has been set up, including regular work sessions consisting of individual or group presentations, followed by discussion and progress reports.
The project 'As palavras com que nos cosemos...' was designed by the ‘Art, History and Heritage’ group with two initial purposes: firstly, to find a common working basis that would allow the various group members to get better acquainted and work together; and secondly, to be an exploratory instrument that would enable the formation of sufficient critical mass for a subsequent application for external funding.
