30 years of Culture, Art and Metamorphosis: The Modern Art Centre of Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation and The Reshaping of Lisbon’s Culturalscape.

Activity: Supervision


This dissertation aims at understanding the role of the Modern Art Centre (CAM) of the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation (FCG) in the reshaping of Lisbon’s culturalscape from the early 1980s to the early 2010s. The dissertation will look to develop a discussion sustained by cultural theories, deep-rooted in the field of Culture Studies, seeking thus, to comprehend multi-levelled and multi-sourced information and to pour it into a narrative of critical analysis of the objects and realities at hand. In this dissertation, the discussion of Culture, Art, and Representation theories, informed by theories in the fields of Sociology, Philosophy, Anthropology, and History, will be constantly entwined with the analysis of the object(s) and respective contextual realities. Therefore, every chapter will simultaneously be a theoretical and an analytical chapter, as this dissertation aims at directly incorporating the study of the proposed objects and realities into the discussion fostered by the relevant and appropriate theoretical issues. The theory will, thus, frame the analysis while at the same time the anal-ysis will allow for a revision and discussion of the theory.
