Exercícios do olhar: Leituras das poéticas experimentais portuguesas da segunda metade do séc. XX

Research output: ThesisDoctoral Thesis


The current research intends to analyze works of Portuguese Experimental Poetry, a movement initiated in the 1960s, using topics of visuality in order to enable a broader reflection upon this production within the interdisciplinary and international context of the Neo-avant-garde. The set of Experimental works is organized in two main groups to allow complementary reading methodologies, longitudinal and transversal, that make use of several visual strategies. One group is author-based and examines mostly individual editions of Visual Poetry published by Ana Hatherly and António Aragão. The other group is focused on specific procedural and thematic affinities shared by different Experimental practices. Therefore, the ultimate purpose of this study is to understand how material and visual resources used in Experimental Poetry widen the ways in which its own works offer themselves to the reader and to the viewer.
