The contemporary artistic thought is a continuous, holistic transformative mechanism.  A text, a representation, and a construction are the basic stages which form an evolutionary sequence of ideas and interpret the artwork as a process. The memory, the experience, the allusion and the idea are the expressive tools that constitute both the representational space and a visual construction. The narrativeness of the materials, the techniques and the systems of constructing, constitute the multilevel conceptual site of contemporary art.

The “Visual Arts” course of the 3rd  sem., through notes, texts, references, and also from multiple artistic means (archival material, design, color, photography, sounds, models, constructions, etc.) explores:

1. The practices and methods that compile narrative structures for the creation of particular spatial and conceptual qualities.

2. The transition from the intellectual-imaginary world to the tangible visual construction.

3. The tools of transition from the self to the external world, the others.

4. The experimental uses and applications of techniques and materials as additional components of the narration of a visual construction.
