Contemporary art as a means of expression and communication is a heterogeneous, complex and diverse field that either reinvents and challenges the materialities of the past or calls for new practices, techniques and materials, incorporating and questioning the rapid technological advance of recent decades. Therefore, it is essential to develop and implement methodologies that allow a technical approach in the interpretation of its discourse, as well as the understanding and study of the dynamics between the intention and its materialization.
As a result, there is a clear need to assess and establish a link between the different actors, their roles and interactions. In this context, the decision-making processes regarding the perpetuation of the work of art is not always evident, so it is extremely important to acquire technical skills that allow the understanding of the contemporary work in its entirety; and that this converges in a coherent documentation in face of its material or immaterial valences.
This Program aims to bring the student closer to the various dimensions that make up a contemporary work of art, allowing the application of techniques and the development of specific tools for the documentation process.
